Flashback Friday



Anna and Michelle at Heather's wedding reception on May 20, 2006. I absolutely love these photos. My friend, Kelly, http://www.kellycrayne.com/photography.html captured the dynamics of a mother/daughter relationship so vividly! This little girl was in such a hurry to get into the world. Her dad went to the cafeteria in the hospital to get breakfast and he barely got out of the elevator when they called him back in to see the birth of Anna Elizabeth. I was blessed to be there to see her come into the world. She has not slowed down one bit since her birth. She is a delightful child. She has her mother's smile and dimple. Anna has an older brother, Hunter and he adores her when he is not wrestling her to the floor. For the longest time, he referred to Anna as "girl" girl wants some cold milk or girl wants a cookie. One of her other nicknames, which drives my mother crazy, is Anna Banana. Anna is charming like her dad and gets a healthy dose of stubborness from her mom, dad and grandparents (I am not saying which one) I love to watch the interaction between Anna and my daughter Michelle, can it be such a long time ago that Michelle and I did some of the same things? I love to watch Anna play with her dolls, she is such a little "mother" already...is the nuturing/mothering instinctual they seem to know what to do so early in life. Michelle was sick recently, Anna (2 years old now) locked her brother(3 yr. old) in his room and rubbed her Mom's back and brought her water.

Having daughters has been such a joy. They have grown up to be wonderful women and we share a friendship that is priceless! Having delightful grandchildren is awesome!
Life is G*O*O*D!!!!

Great post! Daughters are indeed awesome...and so are granddaughters. I frequent Carrie's blog often and just can't get enough of those pictures of
Brooke and Emma...and of course Braden too.
