Twenty-seven years ago today, at 5:57AM I gave birth to my biggest baby. Jessica weighed 9 lbs 8 oz. and was 22 inches long. Here is a picture of her celebrating her 1st birthday with her cousin, my Goddaughter, Tonia. Tonia is exactly one week older than Jess. Also pictured are her Aunt Kathy, cousin Jackie, and and big brother Jeremy peeking his head into the picture. Not pictured here, is her younger brother, Joel. He would not make an appearance for almost another 3 months. Yes, I was big and pregnant with the next one already. As you can see, I hadn't really gotten into the whole cake decorating thing yet. And yes, there are 2 candles there...one for each one-year-old.
Jessica specifically asked me NOT to do her entire life story here, (like I did for her brother Jeremy), so I will respect her wishes...just wait 3 years, when she hits the big 3-0 too...and then...we'll see. I'll just post one more recent picture, of her to show you what a beautiful woman she's become.
The above picture was take a couple of days ago by her four-year-old son, CJ. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JESSICA!!
