I Loved her first....
I had her to myself for 9+ months,
she was 10 days late but worth the wait!
She sat alone at 4 months, Gave up her bottle at 8 mo. and walked at 8 1/2 mo.
(already an over achiever)
My first born,
Brianna Marie Hemmer
9lb 4oz 22 inches long
The most beautiful baby....ever
I was just 23 and Rick 25, we knew we wanted kids right away but decided to
wait for 1 year after we got married....
She was born 1 year and 9 months later on January 31, 1984
So today at 3:38pm my baby girl turns 30
Brianna, you started out as a spirited, playful little girl, you were a leader, the one in charge.
You were sensitive, caring, loved and nurturing to your brothers...
Brianna ~ Brice ~ Gavin
You started out colicky which about did your mama in.
After 4 months things turned around and you was a happy baby.
You were and ARE still a typical 1st born
Highly motivated to achieve success
In School you always strived to do your best
and were unaccepting of anything less.
It's fun to look back at photo's of you around Audrey's age (5 ish)
You and your daughter were/are both twirlers,
that's you on the left, Audrey on the right.
We never had to worry about you in High school/college.
We did not have that "typical" adolescent daughter, not to brag you just weren't.
No drama from our girl, we considered it a blessing!!!
You weren't into the party scene, or ga-ga over boys.
You never even dated which was fine with your dad and I.
It's not that you didn't want to, you were mature beyond your age
and careful to guard your heart and wait for the right one.
It happened while you were attending college
The boy who stole your heart...
One of my favorite pic of you and Chris
We grew to love Chris too!
Then came babies, our first grandchildren.
Brianna you are a wonderful, fun momma who is always teaching and nurturing your little ones.
We are so proud of the woman you have become, you are selfless, kind & loving.
Your babies are growing up in a happy home that you and Chris have provided for them.
You are a full time mommy, and still work 1/2 time as a compassionate nurse.
You've achieved all this in your 20's....wow you've been busy!
As you begin a new adventure today, that of a 30 year old,
I want you to know that the next 10 years we be fun but busy years!
The kids will be more involved with activities, you will be the taxi driver,
the school volunteer, and project manager.
Here's the flip-side...
You will also eventually notice more time for you and Chris, in about 7 years or so,
you'll even be able to leave the kids for short periods of time,
I will never forget that feeling... a touch of freedom.
I pray happiness, good health and joy for you sweet daughter
Happy 30th Birthday
I love you..... mom
