It's My Birthday!

Yes, over twenty, thirty, forty...a long time ago I was born on May 11 - which was a Sunday - Mother's Day.  Wasn't that sweet of me? At a dainty 9 pounds 2 ounces and not quite 19" long, I was a butterball (my poor mom)!  Anyway, join me in celebrating LIFE.  Put on a party hat; toss a balloon; kick your heels up and dance crazy; eat some of the fanciest cake Pink Cake Box makes.....then jump in the caddy convertible with me (NO, I'm not 59...yet) and let's act like party animals!  Anyone else born in May or better yet, on Mother's Day? Was anyone else a big baby?

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

WOOOHOOO!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JANEAN!!!! I hope you have a WONDERFUL day...wish I could have a piece of cake with you but I'll think of you when I have dessert this evening! I'm sorry to say I was born in January...not May and I wasn't a big baby but I had a 9lb12oz baby. Good thing he was the last of 5...the others kind of 'paved' the way for him! The rest were mostly less than 7lbs. I LOVE your photo's as usual..great stuff. This evening I may even pour myself a little glass of wine and say a little toast to you. Enjoy your day....Maura XXXXX (that's pinches but not hard ones!)

FairfieldHouse said...

Happy Birthday, Sweet Friend! You were born exactly one month before me (my birthday is June 11th!) I was a big baby also - 10 pounds and only 18 inches long - and my mother uses those exact words to describe me as an "infant" ... a butterball.
Enjoy YOUR day surrounded by those you love doing what you enjoy. Thank you for making each of my days a bit more special.

Sandy at Teacup Lane said...

Happy Birthday! No, I wasn't born in May. I was born premature (3# 10 oz) and at 6 months. Way back then the hospital I was born in didn't have the equipment for a premie so they transferred me to a hospital that did. I was there for a month until I got up to 5#.
