  29. Congratulations – you have a beautiful family. Hope you get a good night of sleep tonight before she figures out the “I’m hungry every hour” feeding frenzy tomorrow night! I know you must be exhausted after a night of labor – those early morning birthdays are tough – you live on endorphins all day and then hit a wall – all I will say is sleep when you can tonight and tomorrow day cuz you will be busy on night number 2! Also, don’t you just love her birthday??! 1-19-09 – there’s a pattern there, I’m just sure of it. You done good!

  30. Well she is just stink’n succulent! Nice work!

  75. Thanks so much for leaving the comment on my blog yesterday. I, like you, love to get comments. Sorry about the number of blogs. Three of them are letters to my children and husband. It has become very important for me to write to them so if anything happens to me, they will know me and know how much I loved them.
