Eighteen years ago today, this baby girl stole my heart.
And somehow, although I haven’t aged a day (ha ha), she is now a legal adult. It seriously makes me afraid to blink.
She won’t let me put cute elastic bows around her head anymore, but she does sometimes still keep me up after midnight (waiting for her to get home safely). She is still a picky eater, and she still gets into my makeup occasionally (and my closet!).
And she still loves surprises!
Two of her best friends planned a big surprise party for her. I have been in stealth mode all day, helping them pull it off. I think world wars have been waged with less covert maneuvers than this party, but it all worked out perfectly. I stuck around just long enough to get a few pictures. The music was blaring, the pizzas were being delivered, and there was dancing on the trampoline when I made my exit. Good times!
