Happy Birthday "not so" Baby Girl~


It seems like just yesterday we were dreading being parents of a teenager.  Two actually.  Well, come 12:55 PM today, that is all about to change.

For you see, our baby girl is turning 20! 20 people!!  And, while she is the baby in the family, she sure as heck no longer looks like one (poor dad...this being a father of two grown girls is not for the faint of heart).

20 years ago, she was welcomed into this family and joined her "not so big" sister (baby girl is almost 5'10", big sis 5'4") in bringing joy to our lives each and every day.

Her smile can light up a room, she has a hug for everyone, and a heart the size to match.  She is a light that shines bright each and every day for the God she loves so much.

We are now very proud parents of two, what we now refer to as our "twentysomethings". Gulp.

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!  We are so very very proud of you, and all of your accomplishments.

Love, Mom and Dad

P.S.  Sissy, Kylee, and Toby too!! xoxo

Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter. The height difference between your daughters is very similar to me and my sis. I'm older, but much shorter!!

What a pretty girl and sweet post to her - I know how you feel too. When my daughter turned 20 in August, it made her seem so grown up and that we were starting another new stage. Happy Birthday to your daughter!
