My baby's 17 today

Seventeen years ago today at exactly 9:20 pm my eldest daughter was born. I wanted to do nothing more than kick my doctor in the face after 19 hours of labor. I remember her telling me not to scream because I'd scare the other patients! Seriously?! WTF??!! But then, out came this 8lb 2oz bundle of joy, who looked up at me with these big blue eyes when they laid her in my arms.

She was so precious and beautiful. She still is too! She's funny and witty, she's great at cooking pasta, she's a bookworm, and she's an amazing photographer. She wants to go to college and take photography. Hoping to take her knowledge and travel the world taking millions of pictures along the way.

I love my not so little girl. If there's one thing I did right I my life, it was having her and her sister. (even if I can't stand their father)

Happy Birthday BabyGirl! I love you!
