My baby is 14. How in the world is that possible? Seems like just yesterday Shawn called me from the hospital and told me I was pregnant.

11 days after my due date this little, well 9 lb. 12 oz., little cutie was born. She was rocking quite the tan.Since that day she has completely changed our lives for the better.She has many talents.She has an unnatural love of chickens. Real, stuffed, and cooked.She's not very sporty.But excels in other areas.She's always on the cusp of new style trends.She has these freckles that make her even more beautiful than she already is.She can't be bothered with little things like removing stickers. She's all about fun.And she has fun no matter who she's with or what she's doing.She's growing up way too fast.She has wonderful, and very fashionable, friends.She can be quite creative. During church. And yes, a bulletin was injured in the making of this picture.She has perfected the 'hold the camera out really far and take your own picture' thing.She stepped out of her comfort zone at a recent school talent show and taught herself a song she sang while playing.She's always willing to strike a pose.She's very good at keeping up with her friends.She has her moments when she can be a very sweet sister. Most importantly, she's mine.
Happy birthday Sweet Pea!!
