Another Birthday Blog



It's a scary thought that my youngest child is 14 today. Growing up, becoming less of a child and more of a teenager yet she is and always will be my baby.

The most fiery of all my children, the one with determination and zeal, sometimes means life is less laid back with her in it but it's never ever boring. She just fizzes with energy, talks non stop from morning to night and is always active. She always has a real passion and enthusiasm for things, always has a project on the go and gives it her all.

She is so loving and open to love, the kindest of souls, always looking out to help her friends and taking their worries away. She makes me so proud.

I always say when she sleeps I can still see the baby version of her. I found this photo a few weeks ago and it made me shed a few tears, she is edible in this. I used to go and look at her asleep and my heart would melt. And it still does, my wee tootsy moppet, the last baby of mine, the joy of my heart. Lucy Abigail, mo chridhe, tha gaol agam ort.

I know exactly what you mean. My baby boy is taller than me and 19 now, but I still want to stroke his face. When I look at him I know I did something right with my life!

My baby is 16 but still sleeps like she always did - restless and mobile. I still love going to wake her up and finding her wrapped up in her quilt the wrong way round in her bed. Dunno how she does it! Happy birthday to your BBD.

happy birthday to the BBD- she's just about the same age as my 2nd youngest! so glad to hear you're still alive too (search results from last post!)

Happy birthday to your beautiful girl, they grow so quick. My baby is going to be 20 in 10 days time, she was a happy, happy baby and has a good outlook on life. All my kids are taller than me, but I'm taller than the cat still!!
Hugs Sandi xx

My baby girl is a Libra too and it sounds like they share the same firecracker view on life too. ;)
Do you think they make our kids look so perfect when they're asleep to stop us from eating them?
