12

12 years ago today.

T-W-E-L-V-E

How'd that happen?

You were a funny looking baby...


Obsessed with dressing like a Princess....


You grew so fast and before we knew it, you'd started school


Then you moved to Juniors. We thought you were grown up then (but you were only 7)


You're beautiful.
In every way.
Inside and out.


Happy Birthday baby girl. 

Have a wonderful day and thank you for making Daddy and me proud.
Although I could throttle you sometimes and you're unbelievably stubborn, you make me laugh 'til it hurts, you're kind, generous and treat everyone as you would hope to be treated yourself. 

And you're all mine.

Love you Gracie,

Mummy xxxx

(but, really, can't you just show your teeth when you have your photo taken occasionally?)

it's not cool to show teeth when you smile...

If you have private school teeth, show em off. State school teeth, keep em hidden. Hope y'all have a lovely birthday. X

Great post and happy birthday to Miss G

Aww, she's gorgeous. Happy Birthday Gracie. And a closed mouth smile is much more elegant than baring your gnashers in public. See Audrey Hepburn. Don't let your mom bug you G, you've got your own style.
