Thirteen years ago today my little baby girl was born.

We got this in the mail a few weeks later. It was one of those, "Hey, thanks for spending a bajillion dollars with us!" gifts from the hospital where she was born. It's porcelain and about 3 inches long and has all her birth stats. Sweet memento.

Well, except for this:
Her name is Delaney, not Deloney. We did get a huge kick out of imagining the worker who personalized it saying, "WTH kind of a name is Deloney?" And this little shoe is why one of her nicknames is Baloney..

Happy Birthday little Baloney! Now that's a nice hospital! Most just get the bill out to you before you practically get home! Hope you have a very happy birthday celebration tonight.

Mine just turned 16 (27th) - no such parting gift from the hospital for us. Name spelling = funny. Our daughter is AllYson - something so simple - IMPOSSIBLE to find or have spelled correct. Delaney is a lovely name. Happy Belated B/Day BelAney!
