I was born on September 1st at 8:47am, a certain number of years ago.
I had a sturdy build (8lbs 8oz), a decent amount of hair and lips that looked like I'd been given a dose of pediatric Botox.

My birthdays after that were usually good, though less eventful, of course.

Here's a Kodak Moment from my third birthday-

Today I've had a pretty nice birthday, too.

I got some lovely cards, an armful of lillies and this fabulous work of art by Tya:

Given the loveliness that you are today, it surprises me not in the least that you were such a gorgeous baby and beautiful toddler.

Happy Birthday and many returns of the day.

Amitiés,

Have a Happy Birthday. Glad you are back and blogging - I have been following your blog for a few months now....from the UK. I am a South Afican Living in London so "get" a lot of what you write. I found your blog by looking for blogs on Africa....I also had a Cleo the Wonder Cat!

Happy Birthday! I'm so sorry it's a day late--I've been swamped and am guiltily taking time to catch up on blog reading.

I hope your birthday was fabulous!

mince!!!!!!!!! I missed your big day- blame it on my mom, we were celebrating her 75th that day (a week late so I can't mentally link them for the next one). But just wait til I get my mac fired up again, I'll not miss anymore!!
Well have a fun day TODAY since you probably already had a fun day on your bday! Love,
Lisa
