a special day

Shortly after midnight on this date in 1969, I gave birth to our baby girl.  Good grief, how can it be that my children are middle-aged?  Where did the time go?

Happy birthday, Rachel!



This picture was taken, I believe, on the eve of her first birthday.  She had just taken her first real steps without holding onto anything, in this picture; Cliff, my parents, and I were applauding this amazing feat, and Rachel joined on in the applause.

Thank you, Mom!  Each day, when I wake up and am able to take those first few steps, I applaud myself all over again!

The question is, who is watching the three year old while this one shows off?
