A Guest Post by Hope

Hi everyone! I decided it was time to test the blogging waters. I am 5 months old ya know, it takes time to build a following.

While the grownies around me blather on I take the time for some deep thinking ...



I think it's important to consider things, ponder the great questions ...



Nana talks about getting old. I know exactly what she means. Just the other day I sat too long in my high chair ...



Oy! My tush was killing me.

Plus breakfast started backing up. It's fruit and fiber. What do they think is going to happen ...



I'm telling you, times like this can make a girl anxious ...



Sometimes I just wanna spit ...



Nana says to always find my inner bliss, the child within me ...



She's so cute when she gets all philosophical.

I'm going to share a little something with you ...



See this cutie ...



It's Nana.

This was taken in 1955. That's not even the same century!

Today is Nana's birthday.

She's just gonna chill ...

Hope is so beautiful! And so were/are you. It’s surprising how much she looks like you. If you had the baby picture of you colorized people would think you were sisters. Great shots of Hope as well. I would love to know what babies are thinking about when they look like that???

Happy Birthday Dianne, I hope you have an amazing year ahead!!

If I were you, I wouldn't be able to keep my hands off Hope! She's so gorgeous!

Happy Birthday Dianne!

I was that cute in 1955 too!

bobbie said...

A very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your Nana! You look so much like her!

Hope, you are very beautiful. Don't let that go to your head now. Just stay your own sweet self. And keep blogging!

A very Happy Birthday - I am singing you a virtual song just as every one of your posts sing to me.

And there is always Hope - So very beautiful and what an expressive face. Just like her Nana. Sending you snow from Iowa (we have way to much of it.)

Jeni said...

Hope and I BOTH are hoping your birthday is fantabulous!
Loved the baby picture too -both of you are a couple of babes, for sure!

Jay said...

Happy birthday sexy babe! Have a great one!

Sylvia K said...

You are so beautiful, Hope! And so wise for your months! May your beautiful Nana have a fantastic birthday and many, many more. If it will make her feel any better you might tell her that when her lovely baby picture was taken, I was 22!! So she's got a ways to go before she looks like the last photo, so remind her not forget to how play and have fun!

Much love and good wishes to both of you!

Sylvia

Happy happy HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dianne. Now you look like someone I could chill with :)

Mountain Photog said...

OMG, Dianne! You still look the same! LOL! Happy Happy Birthday, my friend! Have a wonderful day and, with any luck, someone will spoil you today.

Those photos of Hope are wonderful. She's such a beauty! I especially love the second and third ones down--the lighting is perfect. The second one is definitely a prize winner. You should enter it in a contest sometime. :)

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday Dianne. Hope is growing so fast!

Happy Birthday, Dianne. You and Hope sure share some genes. She looks just like you. :)

I hope you don't mind her talking to strangers because Hope asked me to paste this link
for her, and to tell you that she's holding one of the Forks off the moment. ;)

Daryl said...

Oh Hope, you have the blogging gene for sure and you look so much like Nana is amazing .. two gorgeous goils!

Sending you and Nana much love and to Nana .. special birthday wishes cause I think you rock!

happy birthday please stop by for your cake

storyteller said...

So ... I take it birthday greetings are in order. Hope it's a wonderful one. I enjoyed the previous 'word' post and if I still played much Scrabble, I suspect these might come in handy. How wonderful to give Hope a forum so early in life. I suspect she'll be quite the successful little blogger if this is any indication of her proclivity ;-)

Love the photos and the commentary. She's adorable!
Hugs and blessings,

betty said...

Hope sure is cute! Happy Birthday to you and many more.

Happy B-Day Dianne!!! I think Hope has this blogging thing down. Pretty soon she will be starting her own.

You and Hope look so much alike.

Didn't anyone tell you that smoking is bad for your health. It is suppose to stunt your growth. So they say anyway. Hasn't stunted my growth any. I keep getting wider:o)

Ron said...

OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!

Is this post ever PRECIOUS beyond words!!!!!

You GO, Hope!!!!! Congrats on your first blog post, girl!! You definitely have a bright future in blogging! When you start your own blog, let me know because I'll put you on my google reader!

Dianne, these photo are so adorable. Hope looks like a little angel. And that one of you is so beautiful!

And here's to dear lady...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR DIANNE

Wishing you a year filled with abundant health, prosperity, and of course....LOVE.

You are so LOVED!!!!

Happy Birthday Dianne! You share the same birthday as my brother in-law-he's a great person too.
Hope is a natural blogger & the cake looks scrumptious, thanks for sharing!

Scott Oglesby said...

She is just too adorable! Why did you have to post the shot of the cake? I haven’t had good cake in two years now….For some reason I wasn’t able to leave a comment on the most recent post, so I’m leaving it here. Hope you had a wonderful Birthday!!

The Peach Tart said...

Hope is adorable and such a good writer. Happy Birthday Nana.

Raven said...

Well how funny that I commented on the Chanukah post that you looked deep and here I scroll down and you prove it. Congratulations on your first blog post. You are not only deep, you are precocious (hope I spelled that right).

Glad you are there to make your Nana smile on her birthday.

CG said...

Two beautiful babes! I love the varying expressions of Hope and think she'll be a great blogger like her Nana!
