~CELEBRATING ADRIENNE...Happy Birthday To You~

(Scrapbook Memories)

Dear Adrie Girl~

Twenty-six years ago today your daddy drove me to the hospital and at 9:34 in the morning you were born.  Expecting to have baby boy #2 (which would have been just fine!) we were totally unprepared when we were told the baby I had carried for nine long months was a girl!  We didn't have a girl name chosen and only had a handful of baby girl clothes (which were gifted to us just in case!).  It honestly took us six days to agree on a name for you...
(Meeting You For The First Time)

I can remember saying the name "Adrienne" over and over and over out loud!  Your daddy loved it, but it seemed like such a BIG name and you were such a tiny baby!  How glad I am we finally chose it for you though...  It was meant for you~
(You Are Now The Age I Was Here!)
I've loved watching you grow up!  I loved every single part of your childhood and was so proud when you started school...
(Sweet and Petite)
(So Shy and Quiet)

I loved making your clothes for you...
(Coming Out of Your Shell)

Seems like it was yesterday you waved good-bye to me as you walked into your kindergarten classroom hand in hand with big brother, Brandon.

Then one day you were going to your Senior Prom...
 (The Most Precious Girl)

And graduating from High School...  And then life around your childhood home was never quite the same.
~CLASS OF 2003~
(You've Made Us Proud!)

Once you graduated and started college you met the love of your life and in just a matter of time you married your beloved...
(Running Here and Running There!)
(Beautiful Inside and Out!)

You looked stunning on your wedding day and will always be the most beautiful bride I have ever, ever seen...

And will always remain the most beautiful daughter I could have ever hoped to have.

Thank you for your deep rooted faith in the Most High and for the grace and love you show to those around you.  Thank you for honoring us as your parents and for all the joy you have brought into our lives since the day God first placed you in our arms...

I pray today for God's peace to wash over you and that this will be one of your happiest and most blessed birthdays ever.

I'm so glad we are friends~
Love you most...Mom

Blessings to you as you celebrate the lives of those you love...

What a lovely tribute to a lovely daughter on her birthday. It brought back so many memories of when my girls were born. What a treasure they both are to me. What a gift God gave to us when He gave us two little girls, each special in her own way.

Thank you!

Lisa said...

Oh Rebecca, she is so lovely. However! When I saw the little baby, my heart skipped a beat and I thought you were sharing different news...someday...:)

Happy Birthday Adrienne!

Oh Rebecca!!! I'm sobbing. Seriously, sobbing. Everyone tells us when they are first born how they grow up so fast and it's hard to imagine at the time how true that is. I thank you for sharing this sweet post with us as well as pictures of your beautiful daughter. She is stunning - just like her momma!

What a sweet, dear post to a beautiful young lady! Rebecca, I hope your daughter has the best birthday ever.

That picture of her going to her prom looked so much like some of your pictures that I thought it was you. Both of you are lovely, and it shows. And what a joy that she loves the Lord!

Happy Brithday, Adrienne!

Hi Rebecca, Happy Birthday to your daughter! My oldest had her birthday on Sat. and many of the things you said about your girl are true for mine as well. When I was pregnant with my second daughter we thought she was a boy and even had the name Daniel picked out but when she was born we were so shocked at another girl that it took us two days to figure out a name. What blessings daughters are and it is obvious that you and your hubby did an excellent job of raising them in faith.
Hugs today.

Elizabeth and Gary said...

A very happy Birthday to Adrienne. As Mom's I think we always reflect on the day our baby was born the day we will never forget, that is why their birthdays are so very special to us.
Rebecca your baby girl is beautiful just like you!.
Adrienne shares her birthday with another young lady my Mom who is 77 years young today Oct. 25.
Have the sweetest of days full of happy memories..
Big hugs, Elizabeth

Rebecca what a beautiful post about your daughter. As mothers, we hate to see them grow, but as adults we see the amazing growth before our very eyes and then they leave the nest forever, only to return every now and then. Your daughter is beautiful. Hugs, Pat

Ms. R your daughter is absolutely beautiful. More beautiful than the heart filled post you honor her with today. Her wedding photo is breathtaking! I love your sentence: You are the same as I was here now. Doesn't that amaze you? My daughter is will be the same in a few more days and I think back in sped up memories... amazing it's been 25 years. Happy Birthday to your precious daughter. Hugs. Tammy

Honey this is such a wonderful post and I loved the beautiful pictures of your sweetie growing up. I hope her birthday was special and she is as lovely as her mom

Rita said...

What a beautiful daughter you have. May I wish her a very Happy Birthday! The years fly and they stay little such a short time. But it is wonderful too watching them grow into adulthood and starting their own families. God is so good!

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY" to your sweet Adrienne....what a loving post you shared with us today, and I so enjoyed the photos of her through out the years.....she always was a beautiful girl, wasn't she?? Took after her momma!!
Cherish your close relationship with her always...some of us do not have that opportunity and it makes me happy to see when a mother/daughter do....and sad that I don't, but.......
You have such a lovely family, Rebecca...lots of credit go to the way you and Steve raised your son and daughter, with love and God's guidance...
Have a beautiful week, sweet friend...Love, Francy

Oh Rebecca, what a lovely post and tribute to your beautiful daughter, (which looks so much like her mama). Adrienne, have a lovely birthday. It is so bittersweet to watch our babies grow up isn't it? We want to keep them with us but again so happy they can have lives of their own. Beautiful post.
