My Baby is Nine!

Happy Birthday, Emily! I can't believe my baby is nine. And today is all about her. I love the way she has grown and developed into the person she currently is and look forward to the many changes that are still to come.

Emily, with Helen to the right looking as if she is going to devour the cake.
(And I look so young! I was 40 in that photo!)
Bless, she was so gorgeous!
Still sweet!
Cheeky starting to creep in?
Rug burn on her chin from wiping out at the play place.
The year we had the 15' swimming pool and a garden big enough for it.
Young lady!
With attitude!
I love every last thing about this child. She is definitely my Favourite Thing Friday this week. Happy Birthday! For those of you who know I made my girls my favourite thing very recently - I know - but it is her birthday. I had to do it!!

A very proud Mum.



  1. Happy birthday Emily - gorgeous pics and how the years fly by! At least cheeky monkey didn`t kick in until she was 4...our cheeky monkey started bang on 3! Have a wonderful day together - look forward to hearing all about it!

  2. I can totally relate-- my daughter just turned 9 last week and I am amazed at the person she is turning into-- and her interests, talents, and character that are emerging... It's hard to believe she's 9 (so grown up-- 8 is still young, but 9??!!) Hope you had a happy birthday celebration!!

  3. Happy Birthday to Emily! I love that you showed pictures of her for each year so we could see her growing up. (My baby is 22.. :() )

  4. Happy Birthday beautiful Emily!! I hope you have a truly special day.
    {And make sure you work your mum hard today, making her spoil you rotten for the honour of having you as a daughter!! ;) }


  5. Happy Birthday to you
    I went to the zoo
    I saw a hairy monkey
    And I thought it was... your mum!

  6. Happy Birthday, Emily! I love the birthday timeline - goodness she's growing right before my eyes. Time flies ;)
