Hallie's Big 1-1

11 years ago today, the doctors cut my tummy open and out popped a wrinkly, slimy, skinny little alien creature who would eventually be known as Hallie Elizabeth Reynolds.  It was the day I became a mother for the first time.  My little Hallie has been a joy and a source of entertainment to me ever since.  I wish I had some baby pics of her to post here, but I don't.  I didn't discover the wonder of digital until she got a little older.  :(   You'll just have to trust me when I say she was the cutest little blonde-headed baby girl ever.

Drama, anyone?

 No, she didn't join a cult.  She's a Christmas angel.

Such an awesome big sister.  Her baby brothers love her.

Baptism day.

REEEALLY excited about her birthday gift.

Before she learned the importance of proper dental hygiene.

Dorothy all hopped up on Halloween candy.

Back off, boys. 

A snowflake in The Nutcracker.

What can we say?  She enjoys turkey.

One of my faves.

Hey, even princesses have to pee now and then.

Happy birthday, my first born.  I love you for the kind, fun-loving, outgoing, adventurous, thoughtful, helpful, beautiful little girl you are and have always been.  I hope you have a perfect day!

Love, Mom

Happy Birthday, Hallie! I can't believe she is is already eleven years old - how in the world did that happen?! I love all of the pictures that you posted, especially the one of you two together (second to last). That is so sweet! Give her hugs for me!

Wow ... I cant believe she is 11. I swear it was just last year we were going to her baptism. I guess time does go quicker when they're not your own kid!
