By the time we brought out the canine 'birthday cupcakes' (yogurt, frozen with dog cookies in them), she was already asleep in her bed. Of course, I couldn't let sleeping dogs lie - not on her birthday! I can't resist sharing this series of photos, even though they are terribly out of focus. Here's how you wake a sleeping princess:
|Place birthday treats and tiara next to princess.|
|Place tiara on head|
(because princesses should always be dressed for
their birthday photographs)
|Shiloh: "Ohhhh! Treats!"|
(note tiara tumbling off to left of photo)
Wow, thank you!
It is the first photo I have ever captured of her 'happy face', and as blurry as it is, I'll be keeping it forever.
Happy sixteenth birthday my sweet girl. Though you have been with me for only six months, you have brought me so much joy and I love you so very much.
