Belated Birthday Photos

What... not a single blog entry for October yet? That's a shame, as this may be my favorite month of the year. {{ Note to self: I must make a point of documenting how I spend this month... }}

Unfortunately, I have to back-track back into September. I don't know how it happened or why, but I totally forgot to post a picture of my daughter, Kimberley, on her 15th birthday! I know, BAD MOM! I think it just slipped my mind. I've been meaning to do it, so here she is:


Kim

She's a little cutie, isn't she? She's a good kid, too. She's got a temper, that's for sure, but a very good heart. I can't really believe she's 15 now because she was our baby for so long. She was 12 years old by the time the triplets came bursting into our lives. Poor kid, she had it made back then... Sometimes I wonder if this all has been too much for her because since the little ones arrived, she's kinda detached herself from her dad and I. I don't know, it could be the age, or the circumstances. I guess it's hard to go to being the middle child after being the baby for so long...

I look forward to when I can devote a lot of my time and attention to Kim. This year it's nuts with my husband being deployed and also being my oldest, Julia's, senior year in high school. I think Kim is just going to have to work with us this year. But once her sister is in college, I really want to focus my energy on Kim. Hey, I've only got a limited time with these kids, I've got to make the time count. Before I know it, they'll be grown adults and it will be too late!

Here are a couple more shots of the day, which by the way, was September 15:

Happy Belated Birthday to your daughter. What a great photo of your little one with her nose all scrunched up...
How's everything with you? Sounds like you're got it all under control. I don't know how you do it. My hubby was gone for 3 days and I almost fell apart...
