I had thought to use nicknames for my girls, but that's going to be too confusing...especially when my mother made a blog and totally forgot about using nicknames. So, today, my Shelby is 10! As our summer tradition has it, this is the 6th year that she celebrates her big day at my parents house. Kind of a bummer for her mother, but I don't really think she'd appreciate it any other way.
Going back to the oldest digital photo I have of her, this was probably at 3 years old. This was her first time going to my parents without me and daddy. They went camping this year.
To today, or at least my most recent shot of her...my mother's slacking a bit this year!
I took dinner to a friend tonight who just had her third little girl, and I wanted to bring her home! She was about the same size as my Shelby-Lou when she made her entrance at 6 lb 4 ou, 19 inches long!
She's our Type A to a tee child, obedient to a fault and never a dull moment! Her sister woke her up at 1 a.m. this morning writing "happy birthday" on Shelby's skin! Fortunatley for her, it's takes Shelbs a bit to fully focus or she would've gone "ninja" on her. She might be small, but she's not one to mess with. Caitlin did make up for it though I think by giving her a ride of a lifetime on the go-cart...Nana said Shelby was hanging on for dear life!
