Happy Birthday To The Most Gorgeous Girl I know!

Tuesday, January 7, 2014
I don't know where the time went but my gorgeous Girl turned 14 today!
I've spent the better half of today crying when I think about just how much she's grown.
She is so amazingly brilliant, kind, sweet and courageous! 
Happy Birthday Lorna! 

It seems like just yesterday we were having baby pictures taken.
If only I could rewind time, take a million more pictures and love on her a little bit more! 
It seems like just yesterday these pictures were taken.
I could just kiss those cute little chunky fingers! 
My sister in law took this photo while we were at the hospital having Mas 8 1/2 years ago.
It was just too cute not to add! 
Such a typical LJ face! 
Can we go back to the first day of kindergarten? 
You grew way to fast and Mom's not ready for High School yet! 
Excuse me while I take the next few minutes to bawl.
Sniffle.. Sniffle.. She's taught me to stay young at heart and have fun! 

I almost forgot to mention she has an amazing voice! 
I like to stand next to her at church so no one hears my out of tune singing.
I never new just how much I could love someone until I had you.
Your amazing, strong, witty and gorgeous! 
I feel so blessed to be your Mom!

  4. Happy Birthday to your girl! They do grow fast. Fabulous photos, thanks for sharing! :) ela

  5. Wow, beautiful voice! She handled the tricky vocal parts parts perfectly. Believe me, Serena, I know those bitter-sweet feelings of children growing up. When my oldest daughter was in the 9th grade, she joined the high school track team. At her first track meet I felt myself freaking out inside because my little girl suddenly looked like a lamb amidst the wolves (wolves in the form of teenage boys with hairy legs and way too much testosterone!) Happy Birthday to your daughter. She is heading into such an exciting, bewildering, exciting, overwhelming, exciting, challenging, ultimately wonderful part of life!

  6. Danngggg! Your daughter has a gorgeous and powerful voice! You should be very proud :)

    Happy Blogging!

  10. Hope Lorna's birthday was wonderful. What a sweet tribute to a lovely daughter, I know you're so proud of her Serena.
    Does she get her singing talent from you or her dad? My daughter is very talented musically also but she definitely didn't get it from me!

    1. Her voice isn't from me that's for sure.. I use her to mask my off tune notes in church..lol..
