Happy Birthday, Mandamonster!

27 years ago, almost to the MINUTE, I made your acquaintance for the very first time.

You were rather small and wrinkly and had your eyes all screwed up tight shut and were singularly unimpressed with this entire thing called "life outside Mom".

My goddess, I loved you so much from the very first moment. "It's a girl" they told me, and all I could say was "AMANDA!!!" So beautiful, so tiny..... so loud. *smile*

Happy Birthday, Sweetie. I still love you more than Peanut Butter.
