Sweet 16

I can't believe Emily has now turned 16, it only seems like yesterday that Justin and I were up in Dorchester awaiting her arrival. She was 4 weeks early but was still a good weight at 5lb 10oz but was a scrawny little bundle and very jaundiced bless her. She had a few problems feeding and used to be sick after every meal until she turned 9 months, you would never know it looking at her now. She has grown up into a beautiful young lady who we are all very proud of.
A few years ago I saw some photos that had been taken to document a birthday, I think they were in Scrapbook Trends, anyway each year since then I have taken similar photos of the girls. It has become a bit of a tradition, so I thought I would share some of the ones that I took yesterday.

She has got a wonderful group of friends and our house seems to be their second home so I thought it would be nice to get a photo of the 6 of them together.

No scrapping to share with you today, but I did have a lovely order yesterday of WP's Spring Market collection from Scrap Revolution so I might just have to go and start having a play with that!

Wonderful photographs... now, will you have to do what most of us other mums-of-teens do...? That is: hide the fact that you've just posted some really beautiful, mushy sentiments and also some history of your gorgeous girl! *lol*
