The little girl with pink cheeks

Remember baby Maggie? She always had pink cheeks. She turned fifteen yesterday.

She is in the midst of being a teenager. And loving it everything about it. She is my 100 miles an hour child... I mean this in a good way. She makes the world better.

When she was born I wondered where she came from. Well I mean, I know where she came from (my uterus) but I remember her being so very alert that first night I met her and we silently stared at each other. We were far from grandparents or aunts and uncles just us in this poorly lit room, me holding her while she held my heart.

She still does.

Happy Birthday to your Maggie. What a precious baby picture of her!! I have one into the teen years also right now, he seems to have changed over night. Did some alien come own and take over my child's body! Another teen coming up at us in this house in the spring time. Will I survive? I think so, every stage of their lives has wonderful things about it and those are what I enjoy!! warmly, Debby

So pretty!

It's amazing how the babies are different from the moment they are born -- probably before too, but it's hard to tell :)

Happy birthday!
