Let my birthday week begin! Seven days, just for me. I know it will be a fun week, and I can’t wait to turn the big “Lucky Seven.” I’m kicking off the week with a #ThrowbackThursday to my previous birthdays. Enjoy seeing how I have changed over the years.
Here is a tender young pup who just landed at her new home. I was twelve weeks old and in my new family. If you ask me, I don’t look like the same hound at all!
My first birthday was full of toys. I don’t know why I got so many of these toys, but they are all pretty much gone now. They were a lot of fun and I guess I over loved them. Squishy fishy was the favorite of all! Do you think I look small there? I sure do.
Turning two I seem a bit more mature. This was my polka dot birthday which was a fun theme. You know me, I always love a good party!
Here I am three. This was a sad birthday as my older sister Katie passed away on my birthday that year. There are so many days in a year, but her death landed on my birthday. She was a wonderful sister, and was always so kind to me. We still had a party, but it was not like other years.
I guess when I turned four, I wasn’t into the celebration too much. All I have is a hat. This year we had Madison joining in the party for the first time, along with me and Emma. The family was changing, but we had no idea how much it would be changing in the coming years.
My fifth birthday was in the midst of my leg injury. That year for almost four months I was on limited exercise which was so very difficult. Mom kept to the plan and trips to rehab, and by summer’s end I was able to get back to my regular activities.
Turning six meant the first year with Olivia in our home. Another change in our family dynamic. It would also be my first birthday without dear Emma. We were not close but I sure did miss her party planning and baking.
I’m a really lucky girl to have such a wonderful family, so much love, and so many opportunities. Stay tuned in the coming days for more birthday week fun!
