Seven years old!

Unbelievable.
Seven years ago, I became a mother for the first time.
Our first born has brought us so much joy, and has taught us so much, ever since she came.
She has been remarkably patient and forgiving, as we have had to learn to be parents.

I loved these gifts from Grandmas:
Grandma R. remembered how much she loves to find the almonds in her cereal, and made a special gift of almonds!  The birthday girl was so tickled someone noticed!
Grandma I. knows how much she loves to help with the cooking, and gave her a cook book of her very own.  How BIG can we get? :)

Scooting happily away. :)

And a real party, with real friends, topped it off.  :)


Happy Birthday, sweet pea. :)  Thank you for being willing to be the oldest child, a very hard job, indeed.  :)  I don’t know what we’d ever do without you!

We love you!

    I love her so much! I remember being at the hospital with you, and then at home while Matt had to work right after she was born! What a sweet girl! Sorry I didn't have a chance to call, phone has been acting up.

    She has grown into a beautiful young woman. It is hard to believe that it has already been 7 years. She sounds like she is learning to show lots of love just like her parents. We miss you all!
