Do you remember what you were doing two decades ago? Well, almost two decades. I do! I remember exactly what I was doing 19 years ago.
19 years ago, I was huge as a house! No, really! I was so big, I could hardly move. 11 months after my first baby, I was delivering my second. Yeah, crazy, right?
It was a crazy time, it was exhausting, but it was also the most rewarding and joyous times. Ah, I miss having babies.
Now, she is a young lady and still screaming for attention even when she’s not trying. That’s just the kind of young woman she is. She’ll make your head turn even if you don’t mean to. And don’t let her flash a smile at you, you’ll be sunk for sure. And if you ever get a chance to talk to her, you might as well have heard the sirens sing. You won’t be going anywhere else.
Everyday since she was born, she’s made us proud. Even then, as a new born she garnered attention as people came to gaze at the biggest baby at the nursery that day. lol! I supposed we should have realized that omen was just a taste of what was to come. She commands just by BEING.
To my baby girl, HAPPY 19TH BIRTHDAY!
That I love you, is a given. That you are my daughter, is a blessing that I am thankful for everyday.
