Happy Birthday Happy Mommy - She's 30!

Hi's Twice Blessed Mommy here guest posting in honor of Happy Mommy's 30th (yikes) birthday. Here's a little back story for those of you who don't know~

HM is my niece and we are 14 years apart. I was in the 8th grade when she was born and felt so proud to become an aunt. I was the instant babysitter - me and my friends thought it was a lot of fun taking care of her. Over the years, HM and I became very close and actually, I felt like she was more like my little sister.

She is one of the sweetest persons you could ever meet and anyone who does meet her, wants to become her friend. I count on her for a lot in my life...marriage counselor, mommy guidance and sisterly advise. I know she is the one person in the world who would do anything for me without hesitation. She loves me unconditionally and loves my children with all her heart.

She was there for me standing right by my side the day I got married and she was there for me shortly after my little babies were born 16 weeks early. That really meant a lot to us to have her and HD there in the first few days for support. I don't know what I'd do without her in my life and hopefully will never have to find out.

I love this girl more than words can say and I wanted to tell you all about it on her big day. I've always tried to make sure she knows how special I think she is and how proud I am of her. So, with all that said, I'd like to share a few of her birthday pictures with you.

Here is one of my favorite pictures of her and my dad when she was about 9-10 months old? (I'm not exactly sure because there is no date on the back of the photo). Ok, this one isn't a birthday picture but I liked it anyway.

This next picture was taken on her 8th? (again, no date on back of pic) birthday. If you look real close, you can see me sitting on the couch with my slip showing..nice.

This last picture was taken on her 15th birthday. We were at Marion's Pizza (home of the square pizza) in Dayton, Ohio. She was growing up right before my very eyes. I really love this picture of her.

So, here's to you Happy Mommy....may you have many, many, many more birthdays to come. And just a word of advise ~ If you're freaking out about 30, just wait until 40 rolls around!

I love you! ~ Aunt Twice Blessed Mommy

Seems like only yesterday, that I was in labor with you. It has been a blessing to have you as a daughter, I'm so glad God gifted our family with you. You are one of a kind, and You have become a wonderful mother, wife, teacher, sister, granddaughter, and friend. I wish you the very best life has to offer, sounds to me like you already have it. That was a very nice post TBM.
p.s. Like TBM said, 30's not so bad, wait til your 40, BUT I say 40's not so bad wait til your 50 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I Love You Very Much, Mom
