I've posted a million times about how quickly my girls are aging, while I, believe it or not, seem to stay the same age. Yep ... 28 (wink). 

Well ... It's unbelievable to thing that this 28-year-old is today the mother of a 14-year-old.

K Belle, my first baby girl was born 14 years ago today at 12:37 p.m. after approximately twenty hours of labor. She was definitely worth the pain and agony. (La Petite Belle, on the other hand, decided to add two more hours to my laboring skills and let's not even talk about the 2 hours of pushing ... that little stubborn thing. Yeah, yeah ... again ... still worth it, but I'm a little bitter.)

We've been reminiscing over old videos of K Belle and her sister. Beau and I have sighed,  "ooh"ed &"ah"ed, and mentioned how much we miss those little girls. (sigh again)
(Here they are again ... sigh.)

(That's her on the right with her best little friend from Tulsa, KK. She was already rockin' the off-the-shoulder look.) 

It's a big year for K Belle ... new school, high school, & being the big 14. Lots of responsibility.

I can't wait to see all God has planned for this not-so-little girl! 

Happy Birthday, K Belle! We love you and are so proud of the young woman you are becoming!

And ... just for old times sake (and because this is what moms do every year their child gets older, despite their child's pleas not to show such a thing) ... I just want to listen to her sweet little-six-year-old voice.

Love you, baby!!

Best times ever. I loved her voice then, and her sweet personality. Kylie's becoming an amazing woman of God! Just like her mama. (:

Maybe it's my just-had-a-baby-hormones, or that my big girl is about to start Kindergarten and turn six - but listening to your sweet little girl sing just made me sob. What precious gifts we've been given to grow and give to God!
Happy 14th birthday to your sweet baby!
