A birthday and a milestone

So It's Lil Red's birthday today!!



9 years ago today my perfectly bald, 6 pd 5 oz daughter was born!!

From the start she has always been a loving, fiesty, quirky little girl with a great sense of humor.


Who often insisted on dressing herself!


and there was no convincing her to change her clothes!







She certainly had always March-ed to her own beat.  Get it? "March" ;)

Lil Red has always loved swimming,


    Sports....

and animals of all kinds...



and she's always willing to help a friend...

She is one special girl!

The brown thing on her head is a skirt with an elastic waist. She called it her "hair" and she wore this everywhere for about a year and a half. She used to ask me to put it in a ponytail and a bun. I have to admit it was pretty genius on her part to come up with her own solution for a lack of growth that neither of us could control.
She is one fantastic kid that I am so proud to call my daughter.

As for the milestone I referred to in the title, well in case you didn't notice it's Treasure's 100th post!!
I'm thinking a give away might be in order???
I'll be back with details tomorrow! For now, I'm off to take cupcakes to Lil Red's class so they can help her celebrate!!

Great pictures. Now I feel like a slacker that again I missed the girls birthday posts.

Awe, you have a beautiful daughter, I especially love her taste in clothing and the brown thing on her head is hilarious because I can remember doing that same kind of thing only with a towel when I was little, it made my hair long and beautiful...lol!

You are a blessed woman!
