My oldest, Penny, celebrated her 20th (!) birthday on January 8th! We had a late lunch with family and her best friends since it was the same day she returned to college after winter break. If you have any doubts as to how quickly time passes, put them to rest with my solemn word. She said it was the best birthday she ever had, and as her mom, I hope the birthdays ahead are even better still.
Here she is at her birthday lunch with her uncle and my youngest brother, Michael.
And yesterday, I ended my long weekend away from work with a one on one day with my youngest, Melody. She supervised while I did laundry, but mostly we just played and enjoyed being together with nothing planned.
She is absolutely smitten with the little tennis shoes that her aunt and uncle gave her for christmas. If she isn't wearing them, she is carrying them around:)
The oldest at 20 and the youngest at 13 months and two more between them. My joy, my world, and if daycare costs were not an issue, I would love to expand our family even more.
