Happy 18th Birthday Jessica!

Today my beautiful, insane eldest daughter is 18 years old. I do not know where those 18 years have gone but, boy, have they been good:) I never thought being a mum would make me feel so much love and joy:) She is the light of my life and I love her to bits even though she can be a bit annoying ( she blathers on so much at times!), she is my lovely daughter:)

Here she is when she was a baby. I promised her no embarrassing photos so this one is a cutie one.
I can't remember how old she'd be on this but no more than a couple of weeks I would say:)
And here she is ( now this is embarrassing- Mum broke her promise!) this morning doing her daft look when she'd just got up and was opening her presents! She did say she'd use this as her Facebook profile pic!

Dearest Jessica- I am so proud of the young lady you are turning into. I hope all your dreams comes true:)

A while ago Barb ( no blog) sent me the kit of Shepherd's Bush Happy Birthday and I decided to stitch it for her. I added the 18 on the cake and made it into a needleroll and she loves it:)

So I guess you're saying that once they start talking, they just never stop! I was hoping to get some quiet in a few years, but I guess there's no hope!

Happy Birthday to Jessica!
