february 1, 1998 our first child was born. 6lbs. 12oz. lots of black hair and the cutest smile ever. now she's 9. blonde hair, blue eyes, and still the cutest smile ever. i decided this year, for all birthdays in our home, we would break out the china and celebrate with a fancy dinner. k wanted steak, her favorite food, mashed potatoes, broccoli, homemade rolls and for dessert...chocolate cover strawberries. everything was so yummy. she was really excited when she saw the table all fancy with the chargers and nice glasses. and right in the center of the table and a platter of chocolate covered strawberries. wow! k got to open 3 of her presents and the rest we are saving for sunday when the creswell clan comes and my brother and his family. k got 3 pairs of earring from
g-ma and g-pa sanchez plus a gift card! she is soooooooooooooooooo excited for that gift card. a, f, and m got her a tamagotchi! she is in heaven. b and i got her a cute shirt from old navy that says...not listening 2 U. it's way cute. the sanchez' in maryland called to sing happy birthday to k via webcam. we couldn't see them but they could see k and hear her. she thought that was so cool. thanks, mom! well k is growing up so fast and i can't believe my little baby is 9. she is such a joy to have in our family and i am so blessed to have her as not only my daughter but also my friend. i love her so much and don't know what i would do without her!
