Warning: This post contains several pictures.
I had planned to post this on Friday, when PrettyPrettyPrincess turned 11. But -- I've been sick for several days in a row and am finally getting around to it.
My millennium baby was born January 21st, 2000. I went into labor at about 9 in the morning, and after a bit of distress she was born at 1:32pm that same afternoon. She was my biggest baby weighing in at 6lbs 6 oz, and she was 21 inches long. She had a head of dark black hair and was the fairest skinned of all my babies.
Here she is at just 3 days old...
I used to love putting her in hats and she seemed to enjoy wearing them too. 2 1/2 months old here...
Here she is at 6 months old. She was an extremely shy baby and often cried simply because someone was talking to her. However, she seemed to light up when she was getting her picture taken.
With me at my Grandfather's funeral. I think she was the most adorable baby and toddler I have ever seen. And people would always stop to tell me so!
As a toddler she'd always crinkle her nose when she smiled. I don't know why she did it, but I thought it was cute.
One things she has always loved, and still does is collecting shells on the beach. Going to Hawaii was one of her favorite vacations. 4 year old here...
I took the kids back home in the summer of '07 and here she is on one of our friend's boats. 7 years old here.
One of her favorite costumes -- The Bride of Frankenstein. 7 1/2 years old here.
Again, loving to dress up, here she is as Alice, from Alice in Wonderland. Halloween 2010. She is 10 1/2 here.
It's amazing to me how fast she has grown in just over a decade. We have her party scheduled for this weekend and it should be fun.
Happy Birthday PrettyPrettyPrincess!!!
