Erika is 17!!!

Today my niece Erika is 17. I was thinking about when she was born. We had just gotten married the week before and Tim's sister Shellie had fought toxemia the last while. Poor Shellie was miserable but we were all so excited to meet this beautiful little one who is now a beautiful young lady! Tim and I went to the hospital on our way to our Honeymoon/reception in California. Erika was the only local grandchild so we all enjoyed holding her and playing with her. I also remember Juan, her dad, being so proud and thrilled at the moment. It was a great day! Hopefully today was a great one for her as well!

I was so relieved that day! It's amazing to think that the tiny little baby we met then is now 17!
