My Baby's All Grown Up!

I'm finding it very hard to believe, but yesterday we celebrated my baby girl's 18th birthday! It seems like just a few days ago she was rolling around on the floor, crashing into things, making weird faces, wearing strange things on her head, talking gibberish, and doing her best make everyone laugh.  Oh, wait. That's right. It was just a few days ago.

We celebrated late last night, after she came back from seeing a play with her two best buddies.  She was treated to a rousing rendition ( i.e., it was loud) of "Happy Birthday".


Last year, she didn't get the candles blown out. I forget why, probably she was laughing too hard. This year, no problem!   The 1 and 8 candles were saved from her sister's birthday 5 years ago, so we managed to include her, even though she was physically in Pittsburgh.


The cake, fabulous as always, disappeared fast. I'll tell you more about the cake tomorrow.


Now that she's 18, she's behaving in such an adult way. She's much more reserved.


She's also become very lady-like all of the sudden.


I'm very proud of the responsible adult she's become.


Seriously, I really am very proud of my girl. She works hard, is really very responsible, and yet still remembers how to laugh and have a good time. I hope she will always be this way.


Happy Birthday, Sweetie!
You really are the best thing the fish store had to offer!

Happy Birthday to your daughter! The Boy just celebrated his 20th last Monday, and it became an extended celebration because he wasn't around on his actual birthday, so he didn't end up getting his birthday scones-for-breakfast and cake until Wed.
