My original baby (she likes when I call her that since I call her little brother 'the baby'). We didn't even have a digital camera it was so long ago! This is one of the few digital pics I have of her and I have no idea where I got it. I wish I could make it bigger, but this is as big as it gets.
And then in the blink of an eye she turned 1.
And then she was 2. Oh, the cheeks, the pigtails and the smile! I just wanna squish her.
And then she was 3. My little princess. She was so girly and would never wear pants.
Her 4th birthday. The one and only time she had bangs. I hardly recognize her in this photo.
Then she was 5. All smiles and perfect little baby teeth. I love and miss her short hair.
Then she was 6. I love her little face. She still looks so young.
From age 6 to 7 brought a big change with much longer hair and some grown up teeth!
That year I did a photo shoot for her birthday in the snow. This is one of my favorites.
And then she was 8. Looking so grown up here!
I took this photo of her on her actual birthday last year. So exactly one year ago today!
I cannot believe another birthday is here. I don't have a photo yet. I'm writing this the night before so I've yet to take her birthday photo this year. She's got big plans though. A Luau themed party with friends and a couple of birthday dinners with family. She can't wait and that makes me so happy. I love her. I wonder if I'll be writing about her birthday someday when she's turning 37. I wonder what she'll be like. Will she be married? Will she have kids? Will she still be the crazy, sweet, wonderful girl who fills my life with sunshine? How could she not be? I know I will love her just the same and that is all that matters. Happy Birthday to my Favorite Girl!!
