And now, she's 11

My sweet little Abbey is now 11 years old. Her official birthday is on the 11th of July. I was a bit busy to do a post that day, so today is the day! She had a very nice party with friends, swimming, karaoke, cake, and presents. Before showing pictures from the day, I'm going to write 11 great things about Abigale Rene'.

1. She is very sweet and loving.

2. She loves animals...ALL animals. {no, you can't have a snake.}

3. She is very creative.

4. She loves stuffed animals. Rudolph is her very favorite. I think he'll be going to college with her.

5. Her favorite color is blue. She particularly likes baby blue.

6. She likes to help out in the kitchen.

7. She is a wonderful reader. She finished the Harry Potter series by her 9th birthday.

8. She writes and draws comics. They usually have animals as the main characters.

9. She loves Mookie and Mookie loves her best. She likes to brag about it every once and a while. : )

10. She has decided to join the swimming team. I am really proud of her.

11. She has a special place in my heart. She is my first child. I will remember fondly the first two years that was just us. My little bayba.
And Bruce is once again in every birthday shot.

Happy Birthday to Abbey! Glad she had a fun day to celebrate. I can't imagine my baby being 11, I'm sure the time just flew by for you.

Happy Birthday Abbey! 11 is a great age.

My oldest is 11 and there is a special place in my heart for my 1st child because she made me a mom.

Abbey is such a wonderful, sweet girl. I hope my girls follow in the footsteps of their oldest cousin....such a great example to the little ones!

Abbey is also my first grandchild and that will always make her extra special to me. I would like to see a picture of her in her new "grandma made" summer nighty.
