I try not to look back on my photos when I'm not actively scrapbooking or it's just memory-lane-o'rama with much wailing, gnashing of teeth and the ripping of clothing while wondering where time is going. In general, it's not pretty. Scrapbooking gives my mind something to do other than lamenting the fact my babies are growing up.
This one in particular, today, as 17 years ago she made us parents. She was our first controlled (or so I'm told) speed to the hospital. She was our first step into the world of parenting. She has been our joy and blessing. She makes us laugh and proud. She is a wonder that God blessed us with and we are forever grateful.
Happy 17th Sweet Pea!
