Turn Around & You're A Mother With Babes of Your Own

Look at how tiny you were and how young we were, more than 3 decades ago on your first birthday.
You and your brothers grew up so quickly and brought ( and still do ) so much love and joy into our lives.
You married the man of your dreams, and gave us another beloved son..
...and the two of you have been blessed with children of your own, grandchildren for us!
Seems just a short time ago YOU were the baby! Happy Birthday Daughter, we love you more than words can ever express.

Your daughter is so beautiful, happy birthday to her. And, congratulations to you. They do grow up before you know it. I have two young adults myself. You are so lucky to have those grandchildren too, Happy Thanksgiving!

I love that song but it makes me cry. Hard to believe the kids are that old now. Happy Thanksgiving

A. Joy said...

Hey! Neat camera commercial at the end! If you want I can come over in my snuggly pj's with my blankie for Thanksgiving?? Just to re - live my babyhood. I guess I didn't turn out so bad considering I came out looking like Great Grandpa Berg. =)
Love you both - thanks for having me!

Thank-you all for your kind words.Our daughter and her family are a blessing we never take for granted!

Julie~Happy Birthday to your daughter too!

centenniel, you're right, that song would be perfect for her.Thanks!

Noble Pig, I used to feel the same, but unfortunately, the kids didn't mind me in that regard and somehow, that is even better !

A.Joy, funny you should mention that, I almost posted a picture of you as a 2 year old snuggling with your Pooh Bear, baby Beans, covered by your blanky and sucking your binky! My how you've changed since then...good thing too, that blanky and binky were pretty disgusting by the time you were 4 years old.
