Happy Sweet "16th" to my Baby Girl

This is how old my precious baby girl is today...
October 22nd... 16 years ago...
I became a young mother at the age of 17...
Not knowing a thing about motherhood!
This sure has been the ride of my life...
and can only expect more to come!

There is nothing more I can say, except...
Happy Sweet "16" Birthday Brooke!
My Baby Girl!

To My Baby Girl:
I have watched you grow from infant to young woman.
Oh the treasure to see the young woman you have become.
To watch you blossom into what I think is an extraordinary person.
You have become many things to me...
You have become my best friend...
The love of my life...
My reason to live...
My reason to breath..
My reason to smile...
The reason for my existence...
The one person I would give my soul for....
And I am proud to call you my daughter.
**sniff sniff, yes I am crying**

I want to introduce you my daughter when she was...
9 years old...
This was Easter of 2003

You are an awesome person. I adore your personality. I admire how you stand up for yourself in the face of your friends; without worry or doubt. I love how fearless you are in front of your adversaries. I love how loyal you ~ to God, family and friends. But most, I love how honest you with me. How we can talk about anything! I am beaming with great pride to know that I have had a hand in raising you into the person you are today. You are truly amazing,
my beautiful daughter!
I thank God every day that he blessed me with you. You are my Godsend.

  1. You have a beautiful daughter. I wish her a very happy sweet 16!



  2. Happy birthday Brooke!!!
    I'm so happy for you, Cecile!

  3. What a beautiful young lady! Happy Sweet 16 Brooke!

    Those are wonderful words to your daughter, Cecile. I can honestly say as the mother of a 16-year-old myself it's certainly uncharted territory for us as parents! It's wonderful and scary to see bits of the adult they will become.

  4. Cecile your daughter is beautiful.
    Happy Birthday Brooke!!! I hope you have a fantastic day!!

  5. Oh Cecile... I am feeling the "I am not ready for this"

    Happy Birthday to your Sweet Sixteen!! she is beautiful.

    How do you do it? I am so scared right now and mine is only 14. She just asked to go to her first High School party. I don't know if I should let her. She now has a boyfriend who is 16. And I want to scream take baby steps for me please!!! Go back to being that sweet little 4 year old and lets do it again. I don't want her to grow up!!!

  6. AHHH,,Cecile you have a beautiful Daughter! Congrats to her and turning 16!!!!


  7. Happy Birthday Brooke :=)
    You have a great daughter Cecile

  8. Thank you all for stopping by today! It does mean the world to me to share this day with you all! She is my world! I will be sure to show her this post when we get home this evening.

    Like Patti said, "wonderful and scary." Yes, definitely. Am I ready for this... Good heaves NO! Do I want my baby back.. A part of me does. But to go back, means to do things over again. And honestly, there is nothing I would do over again. I could say that there were moments I probably could have been a better parent or stricter or whatever... But I always gave my best. Along the way, life has taught me some valuable lessons that I would have never learned otherwise. From the day I found out I was pregnant till today, she is my blessing. Of course, the actual day I found out... I really did not see it as blessing (I was 17 and not yet finish with high school.. things happens) but for every day after that... She is my blessing. Watching her first steps, to her first dance recital, to actually taking up dancing again myself with her, to watching her go to her first dance... to now watching her go on dates with her boyfriend *(yikes)*! The milestones I have covered with her amaze me! The good and not so good times - we have been there for each other!
    Thanks for sharing this with me!

  9. Happy Birthday Brooke! Hope you have a wonderful Sweet Sixteen!!
