She’s 11 today…

My niece is 11 today. Wow! 11 years ago today, she was born.
I cant believe that! I remember her birth like it was yesterday. I remember how thrilled I was…my first niece.
When my sis went into labour we all went to the hospital with her. She was in labour on lauren for days. I wasnt at the hospital when lauren was born, we’d gone home, only our mom and dad had stayed there, the rest of the family went home. but I remember staying up all night, she was born at 4:40 in the morning. I remember all the excitement of it.
Now she’s 11 and getting so grown up. She is a quiet and gentle child. She isnt outgoing at all. She has the sweetest nature though and the sweetest personality.
At midnight tonight we lit candles on her cake, we got her mini cakes, chocolate ones, we stuck 11 candles in them and we sang happy birthday. She was so embarrassed to her. She hates having a fuss made of her. My sis got it on video, I’ll try to post it later on.
My sister was so funny on the video. She was drunk, and After we all sang, and lauren ran out of the room, my sis was like, in her poshest voice, now, this is what its like in 2019!
We’re going to light her cakes again this morning, when everyone wakes up, and we’ll all give her her birthday cards then. Mom and me have cards for her, and some of my aunts gave mom cards to give her as well.
I feel so nostalgic today. I cant believe my precious niece is 11. Man I am old!
