happy birthday, emmalie!

We now have a teenager in the house, and I'm not really sure how that happened. It seems like only yesterday when she was a tiny baby, dependent on me for everything... and now she's an independent young lady, baking her own birthday cake! Here are some pictures of our first-day-of-spring birthday girl, through the years....

Here I am holding her at the hospital, only 2 days old (and definitely a brunette), March 1996:
Emmalie (now 1 and a redhead) with Daddy on a hike, May 1997:
Emmalie the blonde at 2, with her constant companion at the time, March 1998:
Em (almost 3) with her new baby brother Nick, Jan. 1999:
Em at 4 with some Barbie friends, May 2000:
Five years old and her first lost tooth, June 2001:

And the birthday girl this morning, before school:

Happy, happy birthday to my smart, beautiful, talented, TEENAGE daughter! I love you, sweetie!!

Now you and Amy both have teenagers! LOL!:) Only 7 more years here too, yikes...

She looks SO grown up and it was fun to see a pic from each year.
