Sometimes I look at her, and I wonder where my baby girl went.

But then I just think about the young lady she's becoming and feel proud.

Aw, look at Em all glammed up! No wonder you are so proud.

Aww! She's beautiful. I hope she had a wonderful time.

OMG, I teared up looking at her -- she is so lovely, and looks so much like you. And having had the privilege of meeting you both in person (can you believe it was almost a year ago), I know she is a delightful person as well!

She's looking more and more like you!
She's beautiful, and that smile...

Donna, Emily is lovely. The dress turned out sweet. It's hard to see them grow...you wonder where the time went, I know. You are doing a great job.

I love the first picture with that one lock of hair blowing around. She's lovely! (And great job on the dress mods.)

Oh, she's so beautiful! And wow, the dress looks fantastic. She'll be the belle of the ball!
(Twinkie appears to agree.)

Awww... gorgeous. Just like her Mum :)

Love how Twinkie just had to be in the shot too!

She looks so great! Hope she had a great time at the formal!

Ahh, she looks great and the dress looks great too.

I used to tell my DD I was going to put a brick on her head to stop her from growing up. Sigh, she's touring colleges this year and will be applying for college next fall. My baby.

She's stunning Donna! What a wonderful, confident young woman!

Naughty Twinkie! He is SO looking up her dress.

and OMG! What a beauty! But then I just look at her mama and think, oh yeah, THAT'S where she gets it.

Sometimes you wish they could stay young forever, huh?

Em looks gorgeous in that dress. You should be proud. 2 weeks ago, I sat at the back of the car when my 16 year old went for her 1st drive - I nearly cried as I remembered the days when she was just a baby.

Em looks beautiful! I hope she has a good time.

Posted by: Suzanne at December 6, 2008 10:28 AM

Oh she does look gorgeous in her dress. I would feel proud too.

Posted by: sue at December 6, 2008 11:17 AM

she look so gorgeous!!!! and no matter how old she is, she will always be your baby girl. that's what my mum always tells me ^_^

She looks lovely! We have a whole year to go until the Grade 10 dinner, but already there is talk about the dress.

It's scary/exciting watching them grow up isn't it?

Posted by: amandaj at December 6, 2008 06:24 PM

She's turning into a lovely young lady. She'll do you proud.

Posted by: Cathy at December 7, 2008 12:37 AM

How fast they grow. She is a beautiful girl. Love the dress alterations.

Em and the dress look gorgeous. Hope she had a great night.

Em looks wonderful and the dress looks so good on her - hope she had a great night.

She looks gorgeous! I hope she had a fantastic time. Maybe you can con her into writing about if for us. :)

Em is a beautiful young lady. Although you may miss the baby she once was, she is definitely growing up into a beautiful and gracious young lady, which is definitely testament to her mother! :-)

Posted by: Wanda at December 7, 2008 02:30 PM

Em looks lovely, and so does Twinkie!!

Posted by: 2paw at December 7, 2008 05:34 PM

You should be proud, she is a very beautiful girl, inside and out, a bit like her mum really.

Posted by: Anne at December 8, 2008 09:46 AM

She looks beautiful! And I love how Twinkie sneaked into the picture. It gives her a Disney Princess look. :)

Emily looks beautiful Donna! The dress is gorgeous. I too have a daughter and I know how you feel. Also I was so sorry to read about your Mum that you lost her at such a young age. Life sucks sometimes!

Posted by: Helen at December 10, 2008 05:15 PM

She looks lovely! Beautiful job with the alterations :)

Posted by: Octopus Knits at December 11, 2008 10:28 AM

Emily looks gorgeous! And you did an excellent job on the dress. I've been so busy that I haven't had time to see what you've been up to. I miss my blogs!
