Happy 23rd Birthday Caitlin

There are very few pictures of us together when Caitlin was little, mainly because I was behind the lens all the time, and I hated my picture being taken back then. I regret this now, and this is one of the few photos that we have of us together. She must have been a little over a year old in this photo.
She was born at 4:55 am on a beautiful Sunday morning. Quick, but painful back labor of 4 hours, and she came out almost with an annoyed look on her face, as if to say, what am I doing here. The minute I laid eyes on her, I knew she was an old soul.
Constantly at my side as a little one, she was always a quiet little kid. Playing with her toys and drawing in her room. She has grown up to be a wonderful lovely woman, and her dad and I are so proud of all she has done and who she has become.
Happy Birthday sweetheart, we love you more than words can express!

  5. Happy Birthday Caitlin. Drawing and playing with her toys quietly sounds a lot like my Scarlet though it's sometimes a different story when her brother is around;)
    Elizabeth, you're inspiring me to take more pictures of myself with the kids and be less shy in front of the camera. Thanks
