Sixteen

Someone was sixteen yesterday.

Paige

She is taking the behind the wheel test for her Drivers License today.  I remember when she drove the toy fire engine down the stairs and broke her leg. I hope she doesn’t break anything today.

I also remember the big deal they all had about her name.  She wasn’t named for days after her birth….she was just “The New Baby” …Savannah who was 33 months old wanted to name her Alice (after Alice in Wonderland), Maddie was not yet a year old so she didn’t care, Far Guy saw a Robin that day so he suggested Robin. Her parents went back and forth…forth and back…finally they agreed on a name.

They named her Paige.

Paige 1999

From a few months old to sixteen just like that!   Happy Birthday Miss Paige!

  4. If she decides to drive down some stairs - I hope she does so in a tank like the one in yesterday's post and remains beautiful and unscratched!

    Enjoy the freedom of the road Paige - and be safe.

  13. Happy birthday Paige! I'm sure many people have challenges to name their children. I named my son very quickly (actually , I named him Brian not very quickly)Now this is getting complicated(Brian Very quickly)( I better stop now)before my Dad would have been able to have input.Now that's a wild sentence!

  16. Paige's hair in the baby picture is just adorable! My daughter's hair did the same thing about that age. Happy 16th and I hope her favorite birthday present is her driver's license!

  17. Wishing Paige a beautiful--and safe and successful!--birthday. For her driving test, I suppose the old theater wish, "Break a leg," would not fit in well in this scenario.....
