Happy Birthday Sarah Grace!

Sarah Grace January 2007
My youngest granddaughter turned five today. (Oops, make that yesterday.) Sarah Grace was in a hurry to get here and didn't wait for the doctor to make it over from her office. So why should I be surprised that it's already been five years?   She does everything in a hurry!  LOL

Monica had the sweetest nurse setting everything up for delivery.  This sweet nurse had only been on the OB floor for a couple of months and she'd never had a baby come before the doctor got there.  The look on the nurse's face when she realized that she was going to deliver Sarah Grace was priceless.  I wish we had gotten a picture of it. We did get a picture of  the nurse holding Sarah Grace and took her a print of it so that she'd always remember the first baby she delivered (and of course I don't have a copy).

Here's me and our birthday girl when she was 10 months old.

It's amazing how much my granddaughters look alike. Of course, I can't put my finger on the pictures where they look almost like twins now that I want them. 
It's even more amazing how much they look like their mom.

Here I am with their mom when she was about 7 years old.   Don't you just love those big plastic frame glasses and the bandana?  What were we thinking back then?  LOL

I feel kinda of bad about leaving out the guys in the family.  Here's a picture made on their annual outing to pick out pumpkins for their jack-o-lanterns.  

I'm really proud of my daughter and son-in-law.  They are great parents and do so much with the kids.They go camping with Jonathan's Cub Scout troop as a family and both of them take time on a regular basis to have lunch with each of the kids at school. To me it those little things that make for a wonderful, special childhood.
