The big Double Douce! Twenty-two. My BABY is twenty-two today. (sigh)
June 16, 1988 - my BABY was born. 9 lbs. 3 oz. (ouch!)
Emily thought you belonged to her.
I blinked and it was your first day of school.
You ARE so much like your father!
Always the cut-up!
I think this was the last time we were close to the same height.
Some things don't change quite so much.
Again, some things never change.
Happy Birthday to my BABY - Daniel - age 22 on June 16, 2010
I’m going to go cry myself into a puddle now because I can’t believe you’re twenty-two. Ka-boo – one- two (inside joke).
I love you, baby!
And, Happy Third Anniversary to Em and Kyle Wood!

Twenty-five years ago I looked upon your beautiful face for the first time.
And I watched you become a beautiful baby of my very own.
And you changed into a toddler (I'm your age in this photo).
And then to my little girl.
Then you turned 13 and discovered boys (and grew boobies- eekkk).
You and Daniel have an incredible bond. That was a fun ski trip!
Before I knew it, high school graduation.
And you turned 20 - no longer a teenager or my little girl.
And then I heard -"Mom, I met this guy I really like a lot!"
And, like turned to true love.
And you made your career dreams come true with two degrees from the U of A.
And, you have a beautiful smile and more beautiful soul.
I feel so blessed to be your mother.
Here's to the next 25 years - Happy Birthday Emily!

I know I teased my baby-brother, Rusty (aka Poosty) last month in this post. He is the ‘boy in the red pajamas’ as my sister-in-law Julie put it in her comment. But, I wanted to put this photo up today because I just love it. I love how they are so relaxed and not posed in this photo. I love the scenery. I love the way he has his arm around her and her head is resting on his shoulder. I love them. And, I miss them. They live in Reno, Nevada. I haven’t seen Rusty in over a year and I haven’t seen Julie or the kids in 2 1/2 years. I really miss them. A lot! So – I’m going to find a way to get to Reno pretty soon. Maybe I’ll get to go snow skiing. Woo Hoo!
Another reason this is my pick for FFF – tomorrow is Rusty’s birthday. Happy 45th Birthday Poosty! I love you.
Your sister – Starwoodgal
