Where did it go?

So I am feeling a little nostalgic today. Thirty-three years ago today I became a mom for the first time. I was scared to death. Such a little bundle, dependent on me! I was so afraid I would screw it up!

Tiffany Leigh Scott was born at 3:00 on June 27th. She weighed in at 8 lbs, even though she was a month early! You could tell right away she would have brown eyes, although the hair was a different matter, because she was bald. Because she was early, she had no hair, no eyelashes and only half of her fingernails. And she was very jaundice to boot! I fell in love immediately!

She was a chubby baby and everyone told me she wouldn't walk until she was past a year. But on Mother's day 1979, when she was only 10 months old, she proved them all wrong!

At five, she had the most amazing smile and beautiful brown eyes! I loved sewing new dresses for her! She was quite a smart stinker and could read whole books by the time she started kindergarten! Now she reads constantly, still! Look what we started!

This is one of my all-time favorite memories. In the scrapbook in my mind, this one is at the top. About an hour before Tiffany's commencement ceremony, in 1996, I took this picture of my two girls dancing around the family room. Chelsea was almost 4 at the time and Tiffany 17.

Flash forward 14 years to 2010, and this time you have Chelsea's graduation! Boy how time flies!

Now Tiffany is the mom to her own 2 girls (see earlier post on fishing)! We've been through alot together, her and I and today I would like take a moment to thank her for letting me experiment with her on being a mom! Heavenly Father couldn't have given me a better oldest daughter!

Love You Tif!
