Tessa Mary - Through The Years

My second little namesake was born exactly 6 years ago right now.  And the amazing, relaxed nature of her birth was exactly like the amazing, relaxed nature of sweet little Tessa.

Here's Tessa, pictorially through the years.  These pictures were taken approximately every six months.


I mentioned that Tessa's birth was relaxed and amazing and I know that's true because I was blessed enough to be there for the whole thing.  Dan and Teresa were happy and upbeat and Teresa was a great sport 'til the very end.

See?  Here they are at the very end.

And when she arrived, it was easy to see that there was never a baby more lovingly anticipated than Tessa.

And it's no wonder because they must have know what an amazing girl she would turn out to be.

From the very beginning, her big brothers, Grant and Evan, wanted to play important roles in her life.

 And that's definitely something that has continued - through the years.

And they've enjoyed pretty much every minute because Tessa is such a very likable little girl.  She's agreeable, loving, and a lot of fun.

And she loves to dance and is extremely graceful.

But she has other interests too.  Like sports and Disney princesses.  (She could pass for one herself, couldn't she.)

She loves her best friend cousin, Mary, but gets along wonderfully with all her little relatives.

And, she loves to dress up and share all her dress-up clothes.

But most of all, Tessa is one of the sweetest, most easy-going little girls you could ever meet.  She may not see her grandparents for a long, long time but when she does, she greets us with flowers and patiently waits outside for our arrival.   She's helpful, creative, and loving; and we're wishing her the best birthday any 6-year-old could ever have.

Happy Birthday, Tessa.  We love you and miss you every day!

  1. I'm sure you didn't have a hard time picking out picture of her, she is such a beautiful girl and you have some amazing shots of her. Even though one of my favorites doesn't show her face, it's the bowling one with her hands in the air! Awesome! Happy Birthday, Tessa, we love you and miss you so much!!!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
