A Birthday Post About My Baby Girl

Fifty years ago today, at 2:28 a.m., I became a mother for the first time; my little baby girl, 7 lbs, 2 oz. was also the first grandchild, first great-grandchild, and first great-great grandchild on her daddy's side of the family.  She has brought much happiness to us in these fifty years.

To read her take on becoming fifty years old, visit her blog, http://musingreader.blogspot.com , post for June 12, 2012. 

Here are a few memorable pictures from her early years:
Mama's little helper

First birthday with that toy I wrote about, which babies loved and adults hated

Uh-oh! "I think I can do this by myself."

Four years old 

Happy Birthday, Greta Renee'

  5. So many firsts! First child, first daughter, first grandchild, first great-grandchild and even first great-great grandchild!

  12. What a sweet tribute to your daughter. Those pictures are charming.

    Happy Birthday, Greta Renee!

  13. I wonder... do all little girls think it's a good idea to whack their own hair? I cut my bangs to about 1/4 inch when I was a kid... YIKES. Loved these pictures.. What a cutie.

    Happy Birthday Greta...


  14. Awwww.... so sweet, Charlotte! Hope she had a wonderful day. (And I loved the picture of you holding her!)
