I can’t believe it’s been 9 years

since my Harley-Girl was born! The five of us celebrated her birthday yesterday, and we really enjoyed just hanging out. I’ve never seen her be as completely beside herself about a present before, and when she opend our gift, a Littlest Pet Shop, she almost turned inside out!

I’ve been so busy lately, I completely cheated with her cake & just bought cupcakes from Wal-Mart. I’m not even making the one for her party this weekend, my friend, Michelle, is making it, that way I can concentrate on just being “mom”.

It seems like so long ago she was born, but at the same time, it seems just like yesterday. She was so fragile and sickly, and now she’s so strong and resilient. She’s my little fighter, my little Raisin, my goof-ball.

Anyway, here’s our birthday girl:

Love this girl.
