ALE TURNS 12 Today.

My minor lady is not so minimal any a lot more.

It is tricky to imagine that 12 years in the past I was eagerly anticipating her arrival in the maternity ward. The precious infant that I held in my arms then is now formally 12, one particular calendar year away from getting a teen and a couple much more yrs absent from turning into a young woman. 

She is no for a longer time my little one girl.

The place has the time long gone!?!! I guess we were being having much too a lot pleasurable all these years! 😆 Just after all, I experienced the very same thoughts when Ash and Ayd turned 12.

But as custom dictates – just like how I wrote letters to Ash and Ayd on their 12th birthdays – in this article is my letter to Ale:

Pricey Ale,

Yo, wassup! 12 many years aged, person. This is totally Insane!

And in some cases, the consequences of all those choices could past for yrs.
