All grown up

Last month was my daughter's birthday. Her 28th. Christina Danielle. Amazing how fast these years have flown by. This post is for her. This was the first picture ever taken of us together. She was only a few hours old. One of the happiest days of my life.Here we are still in the hospital. She was 1 day old. I was almost 17.

Here she is with her daddy. We were both so young. He was 18.

First day at home with my beautiful daughter. She was 3 days old.

One of our Christmases at her grandparent's house. I remember it like yesterday.
My sweet little girl. Here she was at 2 years old.
Here she is at 3 years old.

I loved this outfit on her. All dressed for pre-school with her baby doll.

'Licking the bowl' at MaMaw's house. That's what we always called it.

Beautiful little girl.

Another Christmas...

So talented. She always loved to draw and color.

Christy and her little kitty. She always loved animals and still does.
One of her birthday parties that I had for her at McDonald's. I told her that she could only invite a few kids from school....and she invited about 30 or 40! She didn't want to leave anyone out.

Another birthday that we celebrated at home. She turned 9 that year.

She loved her barbies!
Here as a pre-teen with her same little friend.

Here as a teenager.

Growing up so fast.

One of our fun times together. We were at a casino in the restroom. We thought it was so pretty that we had a lady take our picture in there.

So glad that we were always close and continue to get closer everyday.

Christy and her friends after trying out for the talent show at the fair.

Here she is with her little brothers.

Sweet Teenager.

She has always been such a loving daughter.

She fell in love....

With a good man....

Married him....

Started a family.... Her mother-in-law and me with her at one of her baby showers.

My sweet daughter and my extra sweet grandson. She is the best little mommy. I am so proud of her.

We met for lunch on her birthday because I had to work. I gave her gifts to her at a restaurant in the mall.

She loved her "Daughter" bracelet.

Me and my little girl....all grown up.

I have so enjoyed our life together. My only little girl.

Thank you for being such a blessing to my life. I love you so much. Thank you for always being there for me. I'll always be here for you too. Pinky-promise.

Oh so precious...made me teary eyed! You look more like her sister than her momma though! :)
Time goes by way too fast...I wish sometimes I could just hold the hands of time, go back to when my boys were little just one more time. See, now I'm really crying!! Ok, changing the subject! Glad you liked my valentines decor...I have such a good time putting that kind of thing together. I too LOVE that wreath..I hope it never grows old! :)
Hope you have a wonderful week my friend!
Missy :)
