Thursday is my niece, Cassie's, 18th birthday! Cassie was about five pounds when she was born and she was so tiny and fragile. I was 22 and without any baby experience. I was scared to pick her up (I'm sure Jan was scared for me to pick her up too!), so when I got to hold her someone handed her to my while I was sitting down. Her tiny little head fit in my palm and she wasn't even as long as my forearm. She's grown into a lovely, funny young woman and I can't believe she's about to graduate from high school! Happy Birthday, Cassie! We love you!
