18

It's hard to believe that 18 years ago I brought home a tiny bundle of joy. She always had a smile on her face, and she sang along with Luciano Pavarotti before she could walk. She was, and still is, a camera hog, and I've got the videos to prove it! I've had the privilege of watching her grow into an amazing young woman, and I'm proud to be her mother.
Happy Birthday, Sweetie!! I love you:)




All dressed up to attend a wedding.

Sporting the pearls at a family Thanksgiving gathering.


Feeling like a princess after the dance recital!


First fishing trip. She caught six fish!

Fun at the river! Performing "Jubilation T. Cornpone" from Li'l Abner


Enjoying Disney with Grandma and Granddaddy!


Always happy to be cheering, despite the weather:)

Now, if you'd excuse me, I need to go blow my nose......**sniff, sniff**

Happy belated Birthday, Snow White (said with head hung low). I hope your birthday was all you wished for.

Just don't grow up too fast because your mommy is having a bit of a time coping...sort of. :)

My lord, she didn't grow into her looks -- she's always had them. And I know where she got them.

Were you, like, EIGHT when you had her?! How could you have an 18-year-old daughter?!

Hang in there, Mom -- the hard work is past. : )
