18 years ago my youngest sister Michaela came into the world. I met her just half an hour after she was born, and she was a bright red little bundle of skin. I changed her first nappy 🙂
She’s grown up a wee bit since then. A lot actually. Despite my regular requests for her to stop growing up, she did. She’s now a beautiful young woman with a whole lot of potential. When she wants to be, she is a friendly, helpful, intelligent young lady. She’s good with kids, she’s hard working, she’s a good cook, she’s chatty and she’s just generally wonderful. Of course, being a teenager, she hasn’t been much of that over the last few years. We’ve had a lot of trouble with her, but we seem to be getting along better now.
I wish her all the best, all the happiness in the world on her 18th birthday, and I hope she gets a stonking hangover tomorrow morning!
That’s her in her prom dress.
That’s her in the very same dress I wore to her christening.
That’s her on August 8th 2014 with our baby niece.
