WoW - where have they gone?

The last 14 years that is!!!

This time yesterday - I was sitting here catching up on everyone's wonderful blogs, fully aware that it was my older daughters birthday "tomorrow" - when all of a sudden I realised that it was actually already tomorrow....... & exactly what I had been doing at this time 14 years ago - eeek!

No gory details from this chick - but Michaela arrived fact to darn quick! I went from cleaning up after pouring some levelling compound in the house we were restoring at the time - to having a baby in the course of 1 3/4 hours -LOL!

So here we are 14 years later - & sometimes it seems those 14 years have passed almost as quickly as that 105 minutes did all that time ago.

She's had a cruisy day today - (14 years olds are far to cool to show excitement about their birthdays), mind you she is having friends around (& some will be staying over- eek!) next weekend. That'll be event #1, out of the 3 this month, out of the way.

So for me it's a quick visual trip down memory lane ;o)

10 Days Old & Boy was I worried about where her eylashes were!

16 Days Old - Still worried about the lack of lashes.

3 Months - Oh yeah .... that's PINK I have her in! (& there's lashes!)

Some times you have to dress up like girls!!

9 Months - Oh yeah - now who was worried about lashes???!!

13 Months - The first signs of a 'wheel' obsession!

Almost 14

The motto - enjoy every moment when they are little, at times it seems as if it flies by almost as quickly as you can scroll through these photos & you're left wondering where it went.....besides when they get bigger they take ownership of the phone!! Pity they don't do the same with the phone bill ;o)

Happy Birthday, Michaela! You're a beautiful young lady!

Oh, my, those eyelashes, Deb! All your worry was sure repaid with lots of luscious eyelashes, huh? The pictures were fun to see, and you're so right about the blink-of-an-eye quality to the way they grow :)

Happy Birthday Michaela from this crazy bunch in SA.

Loved the story about the phone bill. :))

Happy Birthday, Michela! You are getting so grown up! I hope you had a great day! Did your Mum make you a cake, or like me, buy you a cake? I hope you have fun with friends. Deb, just wait until you see your baby turn 29! OMG! That's quite and experience.
