This little one (not so little now) was born on my birthday 13 years ago. I'm also her godmother.

Since she became my birthday soul-sister, I have gotten to ride her party coat-tails!

Going to her celebrations has given me a second childhood.

We have enjoyed together trips to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, Adventure City, choo-choo trains, bouncy jumps, cotton candy, lollipops, clowns, and roller-coasters.

But one of my most favorite times with her was on a non-birthday. She was just learning to ride her bike, and I was helping her.

She was finally getting it, and was able to follow me for about 2-feet without falling.

I was so excited, and yelled out, "You did it! Wanna try again."

She, with a big grin on her face, nodded excitedly and said, "Auntie, we have so much fun together!"

Yes, we do! Happy Birthday, Peyton!

The Birthday Girl

Happy birthday, Peyton! I remember going to see you in the hospital the day you were born. You had a head full of red curly hair. You are just as cute now as you were then. I'm so glad to have you as my niece!

Happy Birthday Peyton
by: Grandma

What a wonderful age 13 is, no longer a child, but not yet an adult with adult responsibilities. Age 13 is the best time to just be you and have fun.

Peyton for such a young person you have great wisdom
ans sensibilites. Continue to be the sweet and darling person you are.

Happy Birthday Peyton

Ii can't believe you are a teenager! The time has passed so rapidly. Aunt Doe's fondest memories are of birthdays and bike riding, and mine are from the years we'd snuggle and read books: Meghan, you and I. My youngest daughter is a Teen-ager!!!
