Celebrating the smallest all weekend....

We have a funny phrase in our family. We don't just have birthdays, we have "birthday weeks" or "birthday months". So this is our youngest girlie's birthday week. I can not believe that four years ago I looked something like this...

and she looked like this....

I was so anxious to meet her and find out what that girlie who'd been kicking and moving around in me was really like. She's still dancing up a storm and now we can't imagine our lives without her joy and energy.

She's pretty excited about celebrating her birthday with Grandma and Grandpa Reid this weekend.

That picture of you is not how I saw you at all. I always knew you were pretty, but in the little picture next to your comments, you have long BLACK hair. Hair color is a funny thing, isn't it?

Happy birthday to your girlie. She looks so sweet. Your whole family looks great.

Oh, I wanted to tell you that Grandpa Reid is soo handsome!

What a beautiful pregnancy picture! Not fair- you only have a round belly, and don't appear to have three chins like I always do when I'm pregnant!
