Oh Danny Boy

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!

Here’s to the next 25!

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!

Favorite ‘Foto’ Friday

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🙂
