    Sweet 16 and Never Been Kissed

    Our oldest daughter turned 16 years old today. I copied these pictures from last years birthday post. I did add a new one.

    Our first family photo.

    Her favorite place to snooze was on my mother's chest.

    My grandma and #1. The christening gown is one that I wore,
    (1st since I'm the oldest)
    as well as all 8 of the granddaughters & 2 great granddaughters.

    She always has a great disposition.

    #1 and Mr. Sign's dad (who has since passed away).
    You can see how much they enjoyed each other's company.

    Such a funny kid!

    #1 and me on her 1st birthday.

    #1 on the left, kissing a cousin on her 2nd birthday.

    #1 on top (where else would she be?), taken in
    Northern Michigan.

    Happy birthday, baby!! I am so proud of the young woman you have become.

    Please say a little prayer or have a moment of silence tomorrow (Friday) as she will be taking her driver's test to obtain her license. Mr. Sign is going with her and he's not known for his patience. She's a great driver. I just worry about all the other people around her who aren't.

    At least you hope that she's never been kissed.

    She was adorable as a baby and now as a young woman she is gorgeous. I have a feeling y'all will have to keep a shotgun by the door to keep the guys at bay.

    Oh the nerves and jitters of your child learning how to drive and setting them loose on the world of road rage weirdo's . It brings pride and joy and frustrations but they love it and it's a step towards that independence of becoming an adult

    fingers and toes crossed for #1 and for Mr. Sign to keep his cool :)

    The driver's test is not half as scary as it is when they pass and drive off on their own that first time. Do yourself a favor and get her a wreck of a car, because if she's anything like my son, she will have small accidents for the first 6 months.

    Great pictures Jenn. Don't you just love to see them grow.

    Happy birthday to #1

    May all the good things in life be her's!

    Hope you had a wonderful birthday and that #1 passed her drivers license with flying colors. Here's also to her sending you flowers on _her_ birthday - something I've done since I was 16. If it weren't for you, she wouldn't be here.

    beautiful post! happy birthday to your beautiful daughter!

    Oh no, did she pass? And I wanted to go to that park by you. Oh no!!!

    I hope all went well. Driving is so much more than just driving the car. You need to keep an eye on everything and be ready for anything the drivers near you throw at you. That is why I love to drive in the bubble (no cars with say a 1/4 mile of you or more) on the expressway when I can get in one.
