You've come a long way baby

Charlotte Michael (after Miss Michael Learned - Momma from "The Waltons" I liked the name) was born 17 years ago at National Women's Hospital in Auckland after a 4 hour labour (not including the 6 weeks pre-term labour and hospitalisation!)

Her big sister Holly was interested but thought the baby should get off Mummy and go to bed.
Char (Coco, Charlie) is sweet, smart and intense, headstrong and stubborn (seems to run in the family) she looks after others, cooking and helping around the house, her co-workers, friends and family adore her for this, she won't take "no" for an answer and is unswerving in her pursuit of ...everything, her co-workers, friends and family call this "being Charlotte".

Happy Birthday Darling, and that big package from Skeleton wasn't actually's your present!

(I am constantly amazed at what I can get away with in the name of yarn)
