Fabulous Friday's Forever Family Featuring...

my wonderful first born daughter, April!!Dear April,
I was so happy when you were born to finally have a little baby girl! You were so beautiful, with all your dark hair and dark eyes. I got to hold you and nurse you and keep you beside me right after your birth! Such love, I felt for you! I still love you!



You were such a good little baby girl!! Always happy and smiley!



You never seemed to go through those terrible twos that most toddlers use to drive their moms crazy. You like to sit and cuddle and have stories read to you!!



This picture reminds of me of that Pilgrim girl you drew that won a first place blue ribbon.




Oh, look I found her. I'm sorry I didn't believe you when you said the picture you drew was in the newspaper!! Your artistic abilities showed up at an early age!!


So, cute how you loved Tickle Me Elmo!!


You have a wonderful sense of humor. I still don't know how you make that "fish face". But, Evan certainly loves his "fishy". How did that start anyway? There is some of your bunny collection in the background. How did that start anyway??



You were such a beautiful bride!! You have been a wonderful and a loyal wife. I really do admire you!!


I can't believe it's been almost thirty years since the day you were born. You have grown in a wonderful woman, ready to become a mom yourself. I am so happy for you!! I'm so grateful that you are my daughter. I love you very much.

Love,
Mom

The fishy face is made by sucking your cheeks in between your teeth.
I love the picture of April and David. It is funny how they still have the same faces.

I love the way you've kept April's drawing. It couldn't be otherwise!
(In a few years, I will also be able to show my children their "Art works".)
As many other things Cindy, I'm sure you keep/conserve for them. And all that beautiful memories!
What a beautiful new born! and a gorgeous bride!

Happy Birthday April. You are a sweetheart. So many memories...Remember when we lived closer and we would swap cousins to do something fun for the parents for Christmas. Or when we would have cousin sleepovers...the brown and the blue-eyed cousins all in sleeping bags all together in one room. Fun filled crazy days together. And now you will be a mom and develop more cousin power. Amazing things happen when you become a mom. Love Aunt Laurel
