She's 22

My baby bear Meg is 22 today.

She loved to play with the stupid snot bulb. She would try to suck out her snot and would get real mad if I tried to take it away. She loved getting sugars from her Poppy. (my dad)

At 14 months old she fell out the back door at my parents house and broke her leg. She was enjoying an ice cream cone with daddy here.....she loved ice cream!

She has on her favorite Peewee Herman socks. I still have those pink Keds. I had been spinning her around here.

Her sister is her best friend.

Now all grown up---she has replaced the snot bulb with tissues. She has never broken another bone & still loves to eat ice cream. Although still tiny enough for Momma to spin her around-I just hug her neck instead. Her sister is still her best friend.

We are going to her house to celebrate on Friday. Her Daddy is going to make dinner and she wants me to make the cake. We are really going to cherish this birthday since we won't get to celebrate her 23rd with her since she will be in Spain teaching.

Aw, happy birthday to her.

Love the baby pictures. She was a cutie.

And now she's a lovely young woman.

Peewee Herman socks! Where did you find those?

Have a great celebration.

How bittersweet, watching your babies grow up. I can't imagine how hard it is to think of her going to Spain...a great opportunity for her, but so hard for you and John.

Enjoy this special day! What cake are you going to make?

Happy Birthday, Meg! 22 is a great age!

What is it with those snot things that attract kids to put them in their mouth!

She is such a beauty... What a gift it has been I'm sure to raise her and watch her grow:)
