The BEST Birthday Present!

Tomorrow's my birthday. I'm going to be (GASP!) 47. I am so grateful for the medical advances that have enabled me to be a mother at my age. And the incredible gift of donor embryos that became my daughter. Waking up tomorrow with this joyful little person is the best birthday gift I can imagine. She slept through the night Wednesday night. It was divine! It was not repeated last night, so I'm not counting on it tonight. But regardless, she ALWAYS wakes up with a smile. She truly is my Sunshine.

So, because it pleases me, and I'm the birthday girl, here are a bunch of pictures from the past month.

Hahahahahaha! The world is just a funny place!

Cribs are for daycare, right? I love the blankie Aunt Kathy knitted for me. It's so soft.

Sometimes when mommy brings me to daycare she takes pictures.

She says I'm stylin' in these shorts.

Yeah, I'm tough! Whatcha got for me?

Peaches? Yup, I like 'em!

I like to chew on mommy's blankie. I don't know why she took a picture of it.

OH!!!! So much cuteness!!!

Happy 47th Birthday, Dora. Are you happier than ever or what? All of your posts - even when you were sicker than a dog - have a certain glow about them - it's wonderful to see : )
