  6. She’s in that weird place where there’s one foot in childhood and one foot just crossing the line into teenagerhood.
    It’s a fun time! I hope she enjoys many of the minutes. I’d say every minute but that’s impossible because not every minute can be a good time.

BTW, Sept. 24 is my wedding anniversary (21st) so it’s nice to know that you and I both share sentimental feelings for that date. Of course, I was in a white dress and eating cake and drinking champagne on my September 24. Your were in a hospital gown, probably in pain, with everyone on the floor checking out your hoo-ha on a regular basis. But the end result was just as awesome!

    Rather belatedly as well, happy birthday, Hailey! You have a beautiful, happy, and vibrant daughter, Jenny. How lucky you are on so many levels. Also, if that’s what she looks like at 11 (I was a total troll until about 19), you’ll be beating boys off with a stick (or a taxidermied cobra), if you aren’t already.
