In the beginning

Nine years ago today, Yvon and I spent a few hours in the hospital and became parents for the second time to another beautiful girl.

It's amazing to me how fast time goes by, and as I looked at pictures I found it tough to guess Laura's age buring the years pre-adult teeth. I had to either look at Beth and Alice in the pictures and then calculate, or look at the date of the files.

It's so much fun to look at the old pictures, but it doesn't feel like they are old.

She was three years old in this picture.

And seven here. Since she could talk she's chosen her own clothing and she'll be a great help to me in the near future as I sink slowly into frumpiness. I welcome her fashion sense where I don't really have it.
But although she's looking and getting older, she's still my little girl and always will be.

Hoppy birthday, Laura!
