It's a Girl! (30 Years Ago)

a sushi caterpillar

Today, 30 years ago, my first baby was born at 3:23 a.m.! She was a wonderful baby, so interested in people, and so full of energy and happiness. She is still that way now! I can hardly believe she's 30, because I feel like it was me turning 30 just a few years ago. Time sure is funny, isn't it?

Last night we celebrated in a Thai restaurant. The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. When I told them it was my daughter's birthday, they gave her this ice cream tray, free! It has mango ice cream, coconut ice cream, and some other flavors that I couldn't remember two seconds after they were said. On the two ends are flowers made out of grapes. What a place!

I gave daughter a gift inside a gift bag on which I wrote a bunch of things she used to say back in her toddler days. She loved reading it! These are some of her sayings. See if you can figure out what they mean:

ho-hodee dat
fick dis
(in our back yard she used to chase) skeemadoes
I energy!
You're not the boss of me! -- Oh.. I guess the meaning of this one is pretty clear. I found a t-shirt that had the same thing on it.. so I just had to buy it.

Happy 30th birthday, Daughter! Hope you have many, many more.

Cute sayings! I'm glad I wrote down some things my kids used to say too. I always tell new moms to do that--you think you'll remember, but you don't. Happy birthday to your lovely daughter.

Cute post. Many happy returns to your daughter. The ice cream tray looks yummy and the sayings are worth writing down, aren't they? Good job!

Sounds like a fun time! And yes, I know can I have a 34 year old daughter when I can't be more than 40 myself!
