My daughter called me out on the carpet this morning!  I didn't do a post on her birthday and Tori - I am so sorry!  Not an excuse - but that computer virus I had has thrown my whole week off. 

My beautiful first daughter was born 18 years ago yesterday. (Look at all that hair!)  My water broke three weeks early - I wasn't even through lamaze classes yet!  I went into the hospital on Saturday night, but still, labor had not started.  Sunday morning - still no labor - so I was induced.  My lamaze teacher, Deena, came to be with me and help me through labor and delivery since I was CLUELESS!!! as to what I was supposed to do.  Looking back, this was probably a good thing! 

I remember watching Lady and the Tramp for the first time while waiting for Tori to be born.  Does anyone remember the series Life Goes On?  This was one series that I really loved to watch and I remember Tori was just born as the show was ending that night.  Isn't that a weird thing to remember? 

Tori is currently living with her grandma in my hometown in Iowa and working.  She loves to sing and plays the piano beautifully - and has composed some of her own songs.  Maybe you will see her on American Idol someday!   Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Tori through the years.

Do you think she looks like me?  (me at 6yrs old)
