This Little Girl

She's 15
She still asks for hugs.
She has an amazing grace about her. Especially on the court. I've been very blessed with her, she's made me very proud. Because, she also has a very good sense of...

humor. I can't tell you how hard she laughed when she saw this photo of herself. And doesn't the ability to laugh at the silly things you do make you a better person? Yes, I think so. She's better. But, not so graceful on that balance beam.
This was last year on her 14th birthday.
My, how time flies when you're having fun. I love you Belly Button.

What a cutie! hmmm, I have a very sweet 15 year old boy; no, never mind, he's still my baby :)

Aww, what a sweet post! I love that photo of her flying, that's awesome! And, she sounds really neat with a good sense of humor and an awesome smile!

You two sound close. I love it!

what a stunning girl. Sigh, they grow so fast. I'm scared my girls will be there before I'm ready.

What a great photo! And how great that she has already learned to laugh at herself! It makes life a LOT easier!

She's a treasure. Happy Birthday Bellers! :)

Happy birthday to your beautiful girl! She does look like she has your sense of humor, which I think is a great quality for a girl to have.

I really don't think you should call her Belly Button though. Belly buttons sorta freak me out. It's an actual phobia and apparently I'm not the only one in the world who has it as I previously thought, though. Just plain Bellers is much better, and I will try to pretend I never heard the other thing.

What a beautiful young lady...
she sounds just as beautiful on the
inside too...

Trisha said...

She is certainly a nice looking young lady! Does she mind you calling her Belly Button?

What a cute nickname. Cute young lady as well. My daughter is 16, also with a good sense of humor. Humor can get you through much in life!

Spend time with her as often as you can. My daughter just got married. Although I am happy for her and love her husband, I miss her a ton. My advice would be to create a special event to do every year (not including her birthday). My daughter and I go to the Shakespeare festival every summer.

Yes, a sense of humor is a great asset. My daughter can laugh at herself and it is SO wonderful. She is not at all like I was when I was a teenager. I cared so much about what everyone thought that it paralyzed me at times. I'm not like that anymore, but it is refreshing to see young girls laugh.

She is beautiful and you are blessed.

That is wonderful that she has such a sense of humor about herself. It will take her far!

She's so prettyful. She reminds me of my goofy best friend from Jr. High. Man, we were so innocent and nutty back then.

I have a 15 year old son.....do you believe in arranged marriages?? But he has very big feet and eats a LOT. Does she know how to cook??? :-)
