I'm officially old.

I no longer have a teenager.
Candice turned unteen on the 22nd.
How is it that my baby girl is 20?
Or that my oldest girl is 32?
Or the 3 boys in the middle are 30, 28, 25?

I had babies that spanned over three decades.
(Makes it sound like we had dozens of kids doesn't it?

Happy Birthday Angel Baby.

You are kind and generous.
You are independant.
You are beautiful.
You are strong.
We love you!

Our neighborhoods are just around the corner from each other. My baby is 20, and my oldest is 23. I'm old too.

Happy Birthday to your beautiful and wonderful daughter!

Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter! She looks so much like you.

I love her hair. What a fun age spread for you! Look how young it's kept you. She's a perfect reflection of your good parenting.

Happy birthday Candice. . .
BTW, those blue eyes and that
blue dress she wore at the
reception, pretty much
lethal! Just saying!

gigi said...

I think Lexi looks like her. Only thing is Candice needs some Smarkley!

She has such a spunk about her! She'll go far on that alone :)
Hope her birthday was all that and more!

And, BTW, you are not OLD!

What a beautiful daughter you have, and lots of great qualities.

I hear you on the feeling old thing, my youngest turned thirty this year. I almost feel like I should be signing up for Medicare. (I do have a few years before I will need Medicare, I just hope it still exists then).

There are so many milestones but that is one that kind of pulls at the heartstrings!
She is a beautiful girl.

Happy Birthday!

You think you are old. I will have two teenaged grandchildren in September.

Why do they have to grow up?

Happy Birthday to your cute daughter!

Connie said...

My youngest turned un-teen earlier this month!
I hope she had a happy birthday!

Kazzy said...

She is so cute and happy! That must feel strange to have your kids not be kids anymore. I am sure you will never stop worrying about them though. :)

Kirsten said...

I remember having her in activity days!! I can't believe she's 20!!

She is beautiful! Hope she had a great birthday

Lisa said...

I'll say she's beautiful. And I'll take your word for the rest. I'm thinking there might need to be some sort of hook up action going on when my son gets home from his mission. Just puttin' it out there. :)

She is beautiful. Hope she had a wonderful birthday. My son is 32 and my daughter is 28 but I was 28 when he was born so I am really old!

She is stunningly gorgeous - but you already know that.

Happy Birthday to her!! My youngest turns 20 in a few months. Kinda excited about it actually
