My Little Girl

Happy 30th Birthday to my little girl, Jennifer. We know that little girls don't stay little, so this mama's heart treasures the memory of a baby who preferred to be held, a toddler on the move, and a sweet middle sister (to four brothers!), who grew up before our eyes, making friends along the way. She is a wife, a mother, a photographer, a vet tech, a sister, a daughter, a friend.

For many years, there were frames that hung on the wall in our kitchen, which held the school pictures of each of the five kids. I never removed the old photo, just added a new one in front, keeping a handy mini scrapbook all in one spot. The kids always joked that they were all stuck in their junior year, since their senior photos were displayed in a different spot.

In honor of her birthday, I made a little slide show of the photos I found in Jennifer's frame, plus a few more added at the end to bring it up to date. Years go by, children grow, but no matter how many birthdays she has, she'll always be my little girl.

Click where it says Happy Birthday Jennifer! below to watch Jennifer grow up. Enjoy!

Just for fun, I also put together a collage of the photos, in case you can't view the video. 
A beautiful baby, a beautiful girl, a beautiful woman. Inside and out.

Happy Birthday, Jennifer! I love you!
