Today on week 9 of quarantine, we’re celebrating Babygirl’s 20th birthday and sadly no, not like this! The whole family was together last year, as you can see on this beautiful day by the Chicago River, but this year we will have to sing Happy Birthday to Daniela on Zoom since Michael, Natalie and boyfriend Zack live in Los Angeles!
Sharing spaghetti with dad…
And wasn’t it just yesterday that she was wrapped around Bob’s leg clinging to life on the first day of kindergarten?
High school LITERALLY flew by… and we are both so happy that we rarely missed any of her tennis matches or basketball games.
Because in the blink of an eye she sprouted!
Graduated from high school (with grandma and me by her side).
And today we celebrate the end of the teens.
Babygirl is 20 and we’re in the middle of a pandemic. And we’re counting ourselves LUCKY. We are all healthy, we have each other. We actually not just love, but we like each other.
Also counting our blessings that she’s a sophomore in college and not missing out on graduation or a first job…. As we pray that this nightmare will be over sooner rather than later.
