Today is my baby’s 16th birthday. So I was getting ready to head to the hospital for my induction. I spent most of the 7th month of pregnancy in premature labor with 10 days in the hospital to hold off the labor. But in the end they had to end up inducing me. I should have seen all of that as a preminition of things to come with her.
I’m not sure how we got from pacifiers and sippy cups to this day. I must have blinked somewhere along the line. Because here we are. I knew this day would come but I didn’t expect it to appear at lightening speed. I wanted to share a few baby pictures with my readers today. She was adorable as a baby and she was stubborn and independent – much like she is now. Her personality has pretty much remained in tact the last 16 years. She has just matured over time.
I wanted to put in some pictures of the day she was born but those pictures are buried in containers still stored from the flood last year. And I have just been too sick this week to feel up to going on a picture hunt. Ron had a few of her baby pictures here on his computer. So we will go with those.
Notice the pacy in the last picture – just within reach. Silly girl!!
And here is my baby today!
Sixteen years ago today she was getting ready to start her journey in the world. Today she is blasting through full force ahead. 16 years old!!! Who knew!! Look out world, here comes Lauren!!!
