One big girl

It's even harder for me to believe that a whole year has passed since I gave birth to Elaine than it was for me on Val's first birthday. In just that time she's gone from a shouting, expressive, 8-pound tiny little person to a shouting, expressive 21-pound slightly larger person. There's one thing about her that has never changed (and I hope it never does) - this girl can express herself and she does so often. Even as she was an endlessly wailing infant, Superman and I had to smile at her perfect expressions of misery and woe (I for one, wish I could have expressed my own misery and woe so effectively!)

Happy Birthday, little big girl. I'm so glad you're mine.






  1. Anna had that little orange dress too!!!!! It was my all-time favorite outfit. It is in my "special baby stuff" box.

  2. wow beck, she is one gorgeous little girl! I don't think I'd seen a picture of her since she was a (smaller) baby. happy birthday to your little girl!
