Four years ago today I gave birth to my enormous
11 pound baby girl.
I'll never forget the first time I kissed her soft squishy forehead.
I mean, really, what newborn has fat rolls above her eyes?


She has since lost much of her baby fat,
though her chubby little butt cheeks are still
quite irresistible.

She knows not to walk upstairs in front of me.......
I can't resist a pinch or 5.

Our Gwenny-boo is such a joy to the whole family.

Addie gave her a card today that read.....

Dear Gwen,
Happy Birthday.
I love the way you laugh because it makes me laugh.
You are sweeter than any birthday cake in the world.
You light up the world with your giggles and love.
I can't live without you.
I love you.

And everyone said.........

High marks to you, my dear friend for birthing a baby literally the size of 2 of mine put together. She's just as beautiful now as she was then. said...

Heartwarming tribute to a girl we all adore! Happy, happy birthday, Gwen.

With love,
