Its crazy to think that 9 years ago, I was in the Army, stationed in upstate New York, and in the early morning of January 22, 2004 I was in the hospital giving birth to a beautiful baby girl. 21 inches, 7 ibs 1 oz.
Isn’t she the most precious lil thing! These pics were taken before I had to deploy to Iraq. These few pictures were all I had hung in my living quarters since I couldn’t see her or talk to her.
She has grown into the most loving, energetic, creative young lady and I am so proud of her. She is like me in so many ways and I adore her and love her to pieces.
We celebrated her birthday with a Hunger Games Theme because she is obsessed with Katniss. We just had some friends and family over for some food and cake, and then of course watched The Hunger Games on DVD.
It was pretty dark and I don’t have a flash on my Sony Bloggie when taking pictures, so this was the only picture I could capture..which I am surprised she sat still for me to take it because let me tell you, she is a ball of energy! She received some art supplies, a secret voice password activated journal, and some other really cute girly things.
Here are some of my favorite pictures with Arabella and I.
Happy Birthday, my love, my sweet Arabella, I am so proud of you.
