Happy Birthday to ME!

cutey baby me!

Yep, it's official.... I'm old.

And since I'm old, I feel I'm allowed to torture you with baby pictures of me!

Daddy and me
Here, Daddy and I show off our giant craniums. Hello gene pool!

me and dad

I always have loved this picture. How cute are my matching coat and bonnet? I'm pretty sure this picture was taken on Easter so I think I'm about 16 months old or so.

My birthday
I think I'm three in this picture, maybe two. It's my birthday! And that's my birthday loot. Anyone recognize that baby doll? I feel like she had a name.... Crazy to think this picture was taken on this day, 30 some odd years ago. (um... yeah, I turn 39 today. I can't believe it.) I'm sure that the bunny on my head is courtesy of one of my siblings.
something was funny!
Obviously, something was quite funny about my birthday. Perhaps I am laughing that I had a bunny on my head!

always a princess
See, I was into the Arts, even way back then! I am a Prima Ballerina! And I obviously had killer fashion sense. Yes, I did put that outfit together all by myself. I believe the lacy item around my waist is a doily off the back of a chair.

I will be celebrating my birthday by waiting tables and doing a matinee. Then I have the night off from work, so I will be heading to my sister's house for a birthday dinner.

Somewhere between my matinee and dinner, I have to rush to the MVA because I just realized that my driver's license expires on my birthday! Oops!

See I'm old and I forget things!

Hard Bappirthy!

I didn't realize my license expired this year until several days later, when work needed to update their official files. Oops. And it's $30 freakin' bucks. Terrific.

Got here from Maryse. Those pix are so cute!! I think your doll is a Mattel Drowsy Doll, which brings back great memories.
Happy Birthday!

That doll is Drowsey Lou.... I had at least 3 of them... she was my favourite and I loved her to shreds. I found one at Target about 7 years ago at Target when I lived in the States... I think I still have that one... I gave it to my daughter.
