I prepared for her birth by watching 5million episodes of TLC's "A Baby Story" (and attending a pre-natal course) so I expected the baby to be born screaming.... so when Lindsay was delivered (after 2 4
That lasted 30 minutes and then she found her voice and her lungs........
Miss Lindsay has been a feisty and sometimes fiery presence in our lives. She has kept me on my toes every step of the way (occasionally weeping in a corner in despair) and she has made me a better person. She was speaking in full sentences by her first birthday and one of the things I love the most is her great conversation. She is smart and way.too.sassy and she can have me in absolute stitches of laughter and her giggle has enthralled me from when I first heard it in a diner in Hope one sunny day in September 1997. I count it has a huge blessing that she still cuddles with me and we have great chats and hang out together (and I achieved some high level of mothering when I successfully bought clothes for her without her this week.......I KNOW!).
I am so proud of the young woman she has grown into, the amazing friend she is to so many, her maturity in dealing with adversity, her poise and grace and her spunk........ a dancer and a rugby player and honor roll student. I am privileged to be her Mom and her friend.
Happy Happy Birthday our sweet girl - we love you to the moon and back millions of times.
And now I am going to embarrass you...........
