13, where did the time go?

Today, 13 years ago, Emily Eiko was born. She was a beautiful 8 lb. 8 oz. baby. A big baby. Not the best baby, she cried, she was a picky eater, she was shy, stubborn, didn't sleep so well, but we kept her anyway. And now she is a very tall, beautiful, picky eater. Still stubborn, very smart, talented artist, gifted keyboard player and has a great smile, although no one would no because she won't smile for the camera.


It's tradition that the birthday person gets to pick where we eat birthday dinner. Last week, she picked East Side Mario's, last night she announced it was to be Subway and Blizzards from DQ. Just what I need 'a coma in a cup'. I know I don't have to have one, but I do, I have to have a cheesecake blizzard, maybe cherry this time, or maybe a peanut butter cup one. I better decide before dinner time.

By the way, she won't like knowing that I posted her pics here, and her birthday info, because...and maybe she got it from me...bad people are on the internet. But I had to share, and I'm pretty sure you guys aren't 'bad people'.
