My Girl

Today is a very special day.

Not just because it's Monday and time for another installment of Monday Night Live (see post below) - but because 11 years ago today, my wife and I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Roseanna. Ok, technically she had more to do with the "birth" part of it but still - I was there and had to stay up late and and and... it was kind of hard for me too.

So in honor of my beautiful baby tween, here are a few pictures we've taken over the last year or two.

At First Communion. A very rare picture because it's one of only a handful of times anyone has ever seen Rosie in a dress.

On a hike. A much more representative shot of how you'll see my nature girl on a daily basis.

Cliff diving at the local swimming hole. Definitely not a wimp. Rosie likes to try everything.

Watcha gonna do. Dressed in blue for Halloween.

As a BFF. Actually, Rosie is everybody's friend - that's just the way she rolls.

Happy birthday baby girl!
I love you.

Happy Birthday, Rosie!!! You are SO special--not only because you are our only grandaughter out of 8 grandchildren, but you are so NICE. I don 't remember you ever being mean, or saying anything mean about anybody. I feel so blessed to have you for our grandaughter---and I love-love-love you!!!!! Grandma

Happy b-day Rosie!! What a beauty! And that shot of her jumping in the water hole almost gave me a heart attack! Maybe that will trigger this baby to come out soon.

Found you through One Tall Momma. Enjoyed flipping through the photos of your beautiful family. And cool song, too. Take care of yourself!

What a CUTIE!
Happy Birthday Rosie!

How fun is it to get to read such a nice note from Dad and such sweet comments from family!

That beats a Hallmark card anyday.
