Emily was induced late Wednesday afternoon, but after two attempts to put meds and Olivia’s heart rate dropping – they decided to do a C-section. Mommy and baby are doing well. They went home yesterday.

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!
