HaPpY 24th Birthday Morgan!

OH MY!!! I remember that day! No clothes are comfy except those mumu type dresses that don't compress your lower bulging abdomen. The swollen ankles (note the slip on slippers). That pressure feeling that you always have to go to the bathroom even though you just did! The feeling of being a beached whale and wondering if you will EVER be able to wear a pair of jeans again.........LOL! This picture was taken sometime during late April or early May. I was miserable, on bedrest since I was 6 1/2 months pregnant, not supposed to do housework or go up and down the stairs but only once a day. The couch was my home.........I think that's why I still like to sleep there! hahahaha!

Fred, Me and baby Morgan. Our first family picture taken at my mom and dad's house. (Notice I'm still wearing the loose dresses since there was no possible way to fit into anything but maternity clothes!)

Awwwwwwwww..........she was about the size of a cabbage patch doll which was the rage back then in 1984. She weighed 6 lbs. 11 oz. and was only 19 1/2 inches long. Our little real live dollbaby that we had waited a long 7 years to get and went through so much heartache along the way...........

Her first birthday party, May 10th, 1985. Oh and I finally fit into jeans due to pretty much going on the starvation diet, LOL!

It seems like it was just yesterday. Where does the time go? And now I'm watching her daughter (Jadyn) grow up way to fast. I realize that before I know it, she'll be grown too...........*sniff* *sniff*
Jadyn's 2nd Birthday pics.........

So Happy 24th Birthday Morgan and Happy Mother's Day to all of you Mom's out there! =D

Hugs! *Nana Lori

What a lovely post! And that hairstyle is vintage rockin'! I'm a very tardy straggler form the swashbuckler soiree (cute barechested boys and evil combo) but wanted to say hello and thanks so much for visiting!

Hey Suzie! Isn't it though? It's like the female version of the mullet and the one where Morgan is 1 is like the white version of the afro! hahaha!!!

Oh the good old days...........hehehe!

Loved visiting the swashbuckler soiree!

And thank you for stopping by to visit me too!
