Happy Birthday To My Sweet Baby Girl

I can hardly believe it, but my baby girl is 25 years old today. 

Wowzers, how the heck did that happen?

It seems just a couple of years ago she came into this world, screaming and wailing. 

She made her entrance absolutely beet red with a shock of black hair and a quirky white streak in the back of her head. 

My alien baby. 

She was petite, just 6 lbs 15 oz. Tiny compared to her older sister, that is, who was 8 lbs 14 oz at birth. 

This new, tiny baby kept me up all night, every night, for the first 6 months of her life. Which was quite the struggle, since her older and very energetic sister was up at 6 every morning, raring to go!


After the first six months, she mellowed into a sweet, quiet baby and child. 

Now, at the age of 25, she's an amazing woman, and I'm so proud of her. 


I have the most wonderful daughters, and I'm so blessed. They make me crazy at times but I wouldn't trade them for anything in the world!


Happy Birthday, sweet Shannon. 

Mommy loves you!
