This Girl

A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future.  ~Author Unknown

This girl is amazing.  

She is strong willed and stubborn...those traits began in utero.
Before she was born, Lollipop Pop was right side up with the cord dangling around her neck like a necklace.  

She would not turn herself, nor would she make it possible for the doctor to turn her. 
She came into this world a gorgeous baby via Cesarean.  

It was with this child that I felt complete. 
She joined her 2 1/2 year old brother and began to rule the roost.

It was with this child that we learned each child is different.  
This girl was the first grand daughter on both sides of the family.

This child is special.
This child is a kind and beautiful young lady.  

She is smart and loyal.

  This child is turning 16 this weekend and I am in denial.

Happy Birthday Lollipop Pop!

Her nickname always makes me smile.

Hang in there mom. :-)

Adorable! I understand denial. Seems like yesterday doesn't it...

Her hair and complexion were so dark! She's lightened up?? I always thought the lesson of the second child is that all children are different. I mean, you know it in theory, but you don't really know it until you have your second child :).
