Today is my baby girls Birthday,, the above photo is of her when she was only 3,, doing her Shirley Temple… this was taken at my Mom’s home oh some many years ago….. (boy do I feel old)….  any way 34 yrs ago I was so excited to get to hold her for the first time,,, I could not believe she was mine,,, she had such dark hair and lots of it, the Nurses made one long curl in the middle of her head.. it looked like a wave.. lol I have photos of her when she was a baby, but don’t have them on my computer yet… I really must do that soon…


This is her 2nd. birthday… what a smile….. love it…


Heather and her baby brother Dustin,,, he was not happy on Santa’s lap…. I always kept her hair long, never cut it.. except for her bangs,,she wanted them.. I so love her little button nose….


First dance with her new Husband,, what a gorgeous Bride she made…

Heather Jessica

My sweet Baby Girl you have brought me such joy and happiness. You have grown into a Loving caring woman. You are such a wonderful Mother and Aunt… So here’s too you Heather on your Birthday,,, my love and hugs I am sending your way….

Daddy and I love you lots;

Happy Birthday to Heather. Isn't she just the sweetest thing you've ever seen. She has your beautiful eyes. I love the photo of her with Dustin, her wedding, she sure made a beautiful bride, and ofcourse the last pic is my favorite.

What a beautiful tribute you gave with such love and pride. Make another Moma want to cry. Thanks for sharing with me this evening. Happy Birthday sweet Heather.

Country hugs sweetie and much love... Sherry

Hello, Alaura,
I love your post! It is always so much fun to see pictures of family. Your daughter was cute as a button and has now grown into such a lovely young lady. She is blessed to have such special parents, too. Please send her happy birthday wishes from me, too!! Vicki

Happy birthday to Heather!! What a beautiful daughter! I am just a tad jealous for I never had a daughter- boys-rough and tumble boys who I love but grow up and don't think about home much!

34 years- it is amazing how time flys - my oldest will be 27 next month- I still can't believe it!

It's awful when our kids grow up in some ways. Every now and then I wish I could hold one of my boys on my lap for a hug. They are much bigger than me now, so that's out - in fact the last time I asked one of them to try he looked at me like I was nuts☺
