Celebrating Aaliyah's Birthday

My granddaughter Aaliyah turned 3 years old on Thursday, March 15th.  I had the honor of being in the delivery room with her parents (my daughter Saphire) and my oldest daughter Ashley.  It was traumatic and disturbing but one of the most beautiful things I have ever witnessed.  It seems like just yesterday that I got to see her birth, watch her open her eyes, take her first breath, and hear her first cry.

Aaliyah is a smart girl, so beautiful, fun, and loves everyone.  She already knows her entire name by heart which is a mouth full for adults.

She loves to sing and dance.

She loves to pray.

She loves to play with her aunties Aleshanee, Dakota, and Hayden.

She has perfectly sculptured eyebrows which she was born with.  Looking at her you would think she had them professionally shaped but that's not the case.

We celebrated her birthday with a trip to the Honolulu Zoo and to Chuck E. Cheese.  It was so much fun.

Here are some pictures from our day out.
