Time Is Flying.....

Yesterday, 3-13-10, my baby, Victoria turned 12 years old. Where on earth is the time going??? I am just amazed at how fast this day has come. I remember with such vividness (is that a word?) the day she was born. I don't know why I remember every little detail of that day. I remember the births of my other 2 daughters but it seems the details aren't as vivid. Maybe because I was older or because I knew she would be my last that I wanted to soak up all the little details of that day. It couldn't have been more perfect. She was just perfect that day 12 years ago. She never cried while in the hospital (I thought something was wrong. Ha!) and she slept allllllll the time. That never changed but she let us know a few days after coming home that she did indeed CRY. She had belly aches for a few weeks a night but after that she was such a joy. Everybody doted on her, loved her and unfortunately spoiled her. For me, Victoria is by far the hardest of my 3 girls to raise. I think she got a little too spoiled.....being her sisters are like 7, 10 and 12 years older and she is her daddy's baby girl (last one) I don't think we realized that this was happening!!! Ha! Anyway, she is such a 12 year old with the typical attitude but she is also such a loving young lady. Now, she has started having some interests in boys, which is so scary to me. She is a great Aunt to her 2 nephews and they just love her to pieces. She is a great student in school and I have never had any notes coming home for behavior or attitude problems. So I am so proud of her for who she is and who I hope she becomes. I pray that she will always be a good role model for her niece and nephews. I pray that she will make good decisions in life and I pray that me and her will have that mother/daughter bond that I have with my other 3 girls.
So Happy 12th Birthday, Victoria. Mama loves you more than you will ever know.
