Four Years Old!

When I started blogging in July of 2006, in every post that I wrote in those days she was centric. You see, at that time she was still in the womb and I was about to become a grandmother for the first time. Those of you who have been there know what it's like.

She was born on Labor Day of that year. I saw her just a few minutes after her birth, lying on her mama's belly with her eyes wide open and fixed on her mama's face. I was right outside the curtain when she came out and heard her first cries, a moment I'll never forget.

The baby days and toddler days are over for her and she's now a little girl. A precious little girl who is loved more and more (if that is possible) by her PopPop and Nanna each passing year. She is growing more endearing and delightful each and every day.

We love you very much, Selena. Happy Birthday, four year old!

I can't believe Lena's 4 years old!!! When we first got acquainted with Bev (then you), she was less than a year. My, how the time flies!!!

What a joy are the children God give us!!

Wishing her a very happy birthday.

I hope to not be a stranger anymore.. Have a blessed Sunday..

Oh, Maxine, she is precious, and so is your story of her birth! A Happy Birthday to Selena and happy memories to you, Maxine! Those grandbabies are such a wonderful, precious gift from our Lord and I am sure you are a true gift to them as Nanna!

With a lovely daughter like Beverly...I can't imagine your precious g'daughter any different. Just reading Beverly's blog tells the wonderful daughter you raised. Her family is soooo sweet.

I know you are a wonderful Nanna too!

Blessings to you always.
