On this day 21 years ago, at 3:o3 am, Jessica Rose Jennings McKellar came into this world, and my world was changed forever and for the better.
That's Jessica's newborn hospital photo on the left, and she's almost 3 years old in the pic on the right.
I'm amazed at how much Emmy favors her Mama, and you can check out JESSICA'S LATEST BLOG POST to compare for yourself.
Emmy not only looks like Jessica at the same age, she also has many of Jessica's mannerisms. It's almost like watching Jessica grow up all over again.
This graduation photo of Jessica is one of my favorites.
I stole this pic on the right from Jessica's blog post today, so I'm not sure exactly when it was taken, but I know it was pretty recent, maybe yesterday. She'll probably share with us in the comments when it was taken.
It's hard for me wrap my head around the fact that my baby girl is 21 years old. It doesn't seem possible that it's 21 years since Dr. Parten laid that squirming, squalling little thing on my belly and I fell instantly and forever in love with her.
I hope it's the best one ever,
and that you'll live happily ever after.
I also want to wish my sisters Ducky
and Susie a very happy birthday too.
That's right, Jessica, Susie and Ducky
all share the same birthday, different years.As I mentioned last week, Lamar, Jessica, Jason,
and on a hayride with my church family.
makeup washed off.
She started off the evening as a cat,
but as it got cooler Jessica dressed her
in a footed fleece snow-suit type thingy.This is my sister CECIL as a blonde doctor,
and one of our church friends dressed as
Velma from the Scooby Doo show.This is another of my cutting edge
self portraits of me and Lamar.And this is Lamar. I'd like to say he's
clowning for the camera, but this
he's truly just being himself.Here we are on the hay ride, and Jessica
and Emmy were a little surprised by the
camera flash. We were out in the middle
of nowhere, with no street lights.I like this pic of me and Emmy that Jessica took.Wanna see my tonsils? Okay, here ya go.
Jessica took this just as I opened my
mouth to say something to her.
And in the interest of full disclosure, I have
to confess that I'm the proud owner of not
one, but TWO pics of my tonsils,
almost exactly alike.
Envy me, y'all.Our faithful driver for the evening,
and the little tractor that could - and did!Wanna see a closeup of Jessica's
and Jason's nostrils?
Okay, here ya go.
Jessica took this one and all
the ones I'm in with Emmy.And one last one of me and Emmy.
It was clear night and I even saw a falling star. It was glorious and I wish I could have taken you all with us for the evening.
Emmy loved the hay ride and was so excited! As a matter of fact, she was so excited that she wore herself out and fell asleep in my arms about halfway through the ride. She didn't wake up until we were back where we started and got off the trailer.This post is already so long that I'm going to save the pics from my camping trip for another post. I'll try to get that done tomorrow or maybe Wednesday. I also have a product review I want to share with you, and a book review in a week or so after I have a chance to read it and really check it out.
Y'all have a great Monday evening and Tuesday.
