Happy 5th Birthday to my baby girl!

**please scroll down or click HERE for my Lil Lolita Challenge #4 Post**
I scheduled this to post at the time she entered this world 5 years ago at 12:35 pm after 12 hrs of labor. Tolla, the one that started my path of being a mother. The baby that stole my heart at first glance. When I saw her, I thought there was nothing else as perfect & beautiful in this world. I still feel that way. She is such an amazing little girl - so full of love & compassion. It totally blows me away. Now when I see her with her baby brother, I catch glimpses of the amazing mother she will be herself one day. It truly makes my heart burst with love.

My card uses Fleur Anya and the happy Birthday sentiment is from PTI Handwritten Notes again. And some more yummy flowers. Gosh, I'm in love with them!!

Here is a pic of Tolla at birth:

A few days later at home - she would totally zonk out after nursing: And today:
Gosh, she's beautiful! Happy Birthday Baby! Mommy loves you!

I'm late but give Tolla a hug from me and hope she had a delightful day. She's got a great mother to teach her the ropes.
