Happy Birthday Miss J


My oldest has a birthday today!! Where did the time go and WHY is she already acting like a teenager?? Did I seriously miss some days, months, years, of my life somewhere along the way?

One thing I remember about the morning I went into labor with her was that I was totally craving biscuits and gravy, and when I called the hospital they said "don't eat!". Talk about being BUMMED OUT!! Okay, she was totally worth it (even though she didn't come OUT until the next day via c-section), but isn't it funny how that sticks with me? I've never forgotten that! It just isn't the same when you only get popcicles, broth, or ice chips! Yes, We had a tough time getting her to come out, and that stubborn streak is still very evident these days but she's still a blessing we're always thankful for. (Remind me of that tomorrow and the next day and the next day...and the next day...)

**This picture was taken last summer (do I look like a Mom who will never let go?). This summer she's still beautiful of course, but like that Cruise commercial on TV, the "elusive smile" of a child her age is about as rare as finding a needle in a haystack, hence, not very many suitable pics to share. I don't care, I still wuv her. She's always going to be my baby.

Oh, and She's quite thrilled that her birthday is on a MONDAY - AND she has to go to school. Poor Poor Baby! We shall have to get her some ice cream.

Happy Happy Birthday Sissy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MISS J!!

It does seem like time flies by! You don't expect it to when you're overtired with a screaming baby, but then it does. ((HUGS))

OMG....I cannot believe how fast time flies...yes I remember too well how she was being stubborn and not wanting to come out, but when she did, what a beautiful blessing she was. I remember seeing her through the glass window and then finally getting to touch her....Happy B-day Jessica. You are still as beautiful and still a blessing as you were on that day. Love you lots, your aunt Julie
