What a precious daughter you have.
She is beautiful outside and in.

Precious, precious!!!

Happy birthday to your sweet 15 year old!

Shelley in SC said...

Such a beautiful gift to your child . . . your unconditional love.

Susan R said...

1,321 songs!? Whoa! Didn't know that was possible.
My baby turns 16 next weekend. What the heck is happening here? If they are getting older I must be too, but I don't feel any older.
Okay, question....what do you do for a 15 or 16 year old birthday party? My daughter is asking for one and I don't do birthday parties at all. I just don't know what I could do that that age group would find fun or interesting. Any suggestions?

What a list. What an amazing, fabulous, wonderful, incredible list.

There is no reason she cannot and will not do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING.

Happy Birthday, Madison!!!

Oh that ballerina picture... just darling! This was a sweet tribute to a precious daughter. I loved that age...

I love nearly all of the things she loves... I wonder what that means. LOL

Leslie said...

I have tears in my eyes. I am there too, my little boy will be 15 in 2 months and just got his learners permit yesterday.
Our babies are growing up Paige! Sniff, sniff! Hmm, too bad we don't live down south, she sounds like a girl that I would "approve" of in every way!!! What a beautiful daughter you have and I can tell you are very proud of the incredible young woman she is becoming. Happy Birthday!

You've got to start putting bricks on the heads of those girls to stop them from growing up so fast. It takes my breath away to see how fast time goes by. They were little yesterday. You should be so proud of how they are turning out. You are an awesome mama!

I love doing birthday posts for my children. So precious. She is a beautiful young lady. I was so happy to find you through Artful Blogging magazine. I thought I must visit after reading your words about simplifying and blogging for accountability. Those were my thoughts as I started my blog this Jan. I am also a first born, type A, mother of 4. We even have a Golden Retriever! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hey Sweet Friend-
Your daughter is so beautiful- and those eyes!!!! Whoa!

Just wanted to tell you that I picked up The Help to read in the hospital while I sat with Hutton. I am on the last chapter and don't want to finish it because I am not ready for it to end! Thanks for the recommendation!
