This beautiful baby girl was born to my parents on June 22, 1993 @ 1:15pm. That was 17 years ago! The baby of my family is now 17! How in the world is that possible??
Seems like it was just yesterday that she was born! The day she was born Kelly & I spent with the our neighbors the Chambers and were picked up a short time later to go meet our baby sister! I distinctly remember running into the doctor as we entered the hospital and her congratulating us on the new baby! I remember the nurse, Ginny (funny what you remember…and yes, that was how she spelled it!), waiting for us so we could help give Alex her first bath! Ahhh…memories! She’s still pretty cute today, but not quite as cute as the baby pictured above!
Interesting note on the dress she was wearing in the above photo. That dress was warn by all three of us as our blessing dress. We all got blessed in it, and had our pictures taken on the same background at 2 months old! We have all three photos hanging in our home and the dress still hangs in my mom’s closet for the next generation!
All she wanted for her birthday was a tea pot. My mom went crazy and all out for Alex getting her an entire tea set! It was sweet, Alex seemed to be happy, but I’m happy that was her gift and not mine – ha-ha!
We failed to remember to get her a cake, so she had to live with Schwan's Apple Cinnamon Wantons! Now, now, now, don’t feel that sorry for her, she gets two more parties so I have no doubt she’ll get a cake or two! Oh….and we put birthday candles in the wantons, only to find out the MELT – duh, right! So my dad was quick to come up with just putting matches into them! We sung the fasted rendition of Happy Birthday on record to keep our table from going up in flames!!
Happy 17th Birthday, Alex!
