Our Baby Thru the Years

I fought and fought with the original post (dated July 6) but ALL my pictures were not going to co-operate and I was going to do this post no matter what, so finally after days of fighting I decided the only way to do it right was to make a whole new post, grrrrrr.

Jennifer was born on July 6, 1981 at 4:37 A.M. She was just precious and perfect, including 10 little adorable fingers and 10 sweet little toes. I think she looked like a little Indian girl with her dark complexion. She weighed 6#15oz. and was 21" long.

TOP:11 months, 18 months (with us), 2 years, 7 months,BOTTOM: 3 1/2 years, 5 yrs, (kindergarten), 1st grade

TOP: 7th bday, 9 yrs.(first day of 4th grade), 4th grade school picture, BOTTOM: 5th grade(First perm) 11 years (with us) TOP: 14 years (going to her chorus concert, 9th grade), 15 years, July'96(10th grade), Nov.'96 (in her homecoming dress) and after getting contacts!, First day of being a senior(on way out the door) BOTTOM: 17 years and me, (mom) This was summer of '99
Awww....this is when she starts a new chapter. 20 years, (her engagement to Jim), ALMOST 21 (wedding day), then she went punk on me, and got a short, spiky haircut the same year. She gave me her pony tail and I cried. But fortunately she didn't go all wild and just settled for the punk haircut.
TOP: 22 years she was about 4 months pregnant with Blake. BOTTOM: 26 years, and I think this is the day she went into labor, but I might be wrong.

Not the best shot to show her off but it is the MOST recent, 1 week shy of 28 years. she is holding her little girl, Jayde and Blake is in the background playing with water.
I hope you've enjoyed watching our little princess grow up, I sure enjoyed every minute of it, except when she told me she didn't like me anymore when she was about 5 years old. I think she changed her mind and I'm glad she did!

Of course I changed my mind! I love you Mom. Thanks for a walk down memory lane "Jennifer style".
