28 years ago on 09/09 at 9:04pm Ritzy and I were blessed with our 2nd child.  A baby girl.  Our son was a little over 2 1/2 yrs old.  I decided before this child was born that I was only going to have 2 children.  I knew that was my "limit" - haha!    We were so happy when we saw that this one was a little girl.  I could have known the sex of  the baby  before hand but decided to be "surprised".  The son looked so much like his dad that I thought that no one would ever believe this child had "indian blood" in his veins.  He was a towhead and light skinned and very handsome.   But.......when the daughter was born, she showed the indian side of the family.  I thought ok, I have at least one child that looks a little like me, haha!!   Years ago,  I knew that if I ever had a little girl that I was going to name her "KERI".  A friend of my parent's named their daughter that when I was about 15 or so and I fell in love with the name.  It was just spelled different.  I thought it was such a pretty name.  Well I got the chance when this little bundle came along...I just wasn't sure about her middle name.  Right up until the moment she was born she was gonna get my middle name "Ann"  but when they asked for her name I decided to give her my dad's middle name "Joe" without the "e".  I knew I had made the right choice - it just felt right....
I just can't believe that it has been 28 years ago.....WOW!!!!
In our mother/daughter relationship there have been great years, good years and not so good years but right now we are in a great place.  I try to tell her to enjoy these years while her boys are growing up because you blink and the time is gone......
All I have to say is "Happy Birthday Keri Jo, I love you!!!"....Mom
