Happy Birthday Elena!

I still can't believe it, my baby is 9 years old today and I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. I can shut my eyes and still remember every detail of her birth like it was yesterday. I am amazed that the baby I brought home from the hospital weighing only 4 lbs is now the tallest girl in her class (probably her grade) and yes, there is a tall gene on my family that I did not get. Her shoe size is one size smaller than mine and she comes up to my shoulder or maybe a little past it when she stands next to me.

She's a great kid, does great in school and I couldn't be more proud to be her mom.

Happy Birthday baby!

Well happy birthday to your daughter!!!. Yes the time passed by quickly very quickly and the older they get it seems to pass by faster. She looks so grown up on that picture. My daughter at this time is on her way to New Oreleans for her fist intewview for a real(full time job) she will graduate from college may of next year. It seem like yesteday that she was my little girl declaring that she never wanted to leave home. I hope you Elena and your family have a great day. A wonderful holiday.

My daughter will be 11 years old in March and I feel the same way you do. I look at her and think about the first time I saw her, the first time I brought her home from the hospital. Now she's almost as tall as me!
