The first girl I ever loved

It was a chilly day 6 years ago today that I met her. It was about 2:36 pm when she first caught my eye. The first thing I noticed was that she had a bruised up face, like maybe she had been in some sort of bar fight or something. It was not appealing. But I was assured that it would heal. So I let it slide. I don't think she liked me at first, because she wouldn't even open her eyes to acknowledge I was in the same room as her. And if she did happen to take a peek, she only wept.

I knew she would be the prettiest girl in the room, even before the bruises oh her face healed. But what she would become in the next 6 years has bypassed even my highest expectations.

I will share with you some photos of her early days. I had to take pictures of pictures because my scanner is broken..*poor me*

I know these pictures are not good....Which is ok with me, because it showcases how fat I really was back then....

Here are some of her the first 2 weeks of her life.

Please concentrate on the baby, for I am fat and pasty, mmkay?

This is one of my favorite pics of her, although you can not see the real cuteness in it..But trust me, its a good one.

Here are some ones when she was bigger...At the beach and holding a kitten we had found outside...I brought it in a bathed it because it was smelly...I am a sucker for a cat..

This is at our old house back in Michigan...Her first day of preschool.

Here is the one with the cat, and yes those are my fat legs holding toddler spawn when she was a mere baby spawn.

Here are some recent ones of her....You all know what she looks like, but I don't care..

last summer when we went to the museum, you can see the Mighty Mississippi River in the background..

so there is the first girl I ever loved......She came in this world Feb 1st , 2000 a bouncing fat 8 lbs 13 ounces and 22.5 inches long....

She is now 43 pounds and 43 inches tall.....With a heart condition..haha

I love you Meg...


These are some pictures I took yesterday, here is Meg Ryan spawn doing a karate kick

here are the girls showing off their muscles

and last but certainly not least......My meltdown spawn says to me today....

" I have been thinking about what I want to be when I grow up."

now mind you ever since he was 3 he has wanted to be a paleontologist

" what's that son?, what do you want to be?"

" a bounty hunter"

yup, that sounds about right.

On another subject... thanks for volunteering to let Norman spend part of his vacation with you! Email me ( with your mailing address. I am making his travel plans and will let you know when he will be at your home. I just know he will love seeing the worlds largest ball of string. Maybe you and your mom can take him out on the town one night or let him play poker with you LOL! This is going to be a hoot. He already has plans to travel to Scotland, Australia, Nashville, Tennessee and now to visit you. Lucky gnome

I just love that name... She's a sweetheart! (Oh - Meltdown spawn and toddler spawn are too!)
I'm a sucker for cats too. But I don't think I'd molest the poor thing. Why not drench it in perfume? "I wear only chanel no 5" - the fanciest cat in town..
