My Baby Turned 7 Today!
I'm a forty-four year old man with a nearly 15 year old daughter and one who turned seven today. I am also one of the proudest Papa's you've ever met...I've got great girls. Julie and I wanted to be married five years before we had children, Kaitlin was born in January and our fifth anniversary was in March. We loved and poured ourselves into this beautful child, I didn't want anymore and could not imagine loving anyone else like I love that child...my wife wanted another child sooner, but it took me five years to come around to the thought, and then almost three for her to concieve...and then it happened...We had the most beautiful blond haired, blue eyed baby girl you've ever seen...and when I woke up this morning she was seven and in January that beautiful dark haired and dark eyed baby will be fifteen and in the wonderful state of Florida it means she can start driving with an adult. Today we passed her dream car, a VW Bug, and of course it only costs 7800.00...Dad! So I say with great pleasure and the knowledge that I will have a child at home almost into retirement...Happy Birthday Madison...I really love you! Dad

Dude, Neil, your little girl is less than week older than my oldest. Machaela will be 7 Wednesday. It seems like just last week that I was holding her after she was born in the labor and delivery room. In 3 years she'll be a tweener!

Time does fly, my friend; doesn't it? Enjoy these years. Soak them in. They all too quickly are gone. My son almost daily receives letters from colleges all over the US, and with each one that comes in the mail, the reality is driven home a little deeper that my time with him in my home is drawing to a close.
