She's 14!

14 years ago today I was in the hospital.  With a brand new baby. My first.

It was snowing, but NOTHING like it has been here the last few days.

I had a perfect baby girl, my first, who cried the entire night because she wouldn't eat.

Crazy stubborn back then too!  :-)

It's been a wild ride these last 14 years.

She's kept us on our toes.

She's tried every sport under the sun, literally.  Basketball, Volleyball, Softball, Track, and Cheerleading.

I'm glad she's settled on Cheerleading.

She's very good at it.

I'm so proud of her.  She's smart and maintains great grades, she's beautiful, inside and out, and she is a loyal friend. 

She can drive me INSANE with her stubbornness, but in the same breath make me laugh uncontrollably.
She has the quirkiest sense of humor, but she is SO FUNNY when she wants to be.

I lucked out getting a daughter like her. 

Happy Birthday Gracie.  We LOVE you!
