And today, my baby is 19






Today, my baby girl Hope, is 19.  It seems like just yesterday I was counting in days and months.  Those days are long gone......I can remember when she was one week old I turned to my dad and said with a sigh, "Well, we've kept her alive for a week."  It seemed like such an accomplishment!  (And it was, really.) And by God's wonderful grace, she still is!!!  Praise the Lord!

For your viewing pleasure, here's one of the cutest things I've ever seen.  I'm biased, of course!

PS-I love her!

What a funny sentiment...."kept her alive for a week." I think I had that thought -- and still do. Happy birthday!

The video was adorable! I made a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing so if she stops by we can celebrate a bit! Love the picture where you are kissing her. If only our children had a clue of how much we LOVE them!!!!

Oh how cute! I remember when she was born! Can't believe it's been 19 years. They grow up too fast! "Hope" she has a happy birthday.
