Happy Birthday, Julia!

By Wyatt Earp | December 3, 2010

Today is my lovely daughter’s second birthday. As you can plainly see, she knows who runs things in our house: it’s the princess.

Sure, she still wakes up at all hours of the night, and ends up sleeping in our bed for a few hours. Sure, she has the occasional crying fit for reasons unknown. Sure, she torments her brothers – particularly Kevin, who is usually the target of her sneak attacks. But all of that is forgotten with one smile, and a pleasant, “Hi Daddy!”

Naturally, I think she is the most beautiful girl in the world, and this picture proves it.

I wasn’t looking for cute overload here, but I also wanted to post the below photo – if for no other reason than it really accentuates her mischievous nature. Take a look at that face and tell me she isn’t plotting something evil . . .

We celebrated her birthday last weekend, because I have to work tonight. The rest of the clan will have cake tonight. Happy birthday, Jules! We love you very much.

    Looks like a Darth Vadress stare in the photo, pure unadulterated evil. Better give her a BIG cake. Happy B’day to the kiddo.

    Where have I seen that evil grin before? It looks so familiar, I’m sure it’ll come to me eventually…..

    Have a wonderful birthday Julia!

    Happy Birthday, Julia!

    My youngest has her birthday on Saturday. Sadly, I’ll be missing it due to military obligations. Not the first time that has happened.

    Fenway – Tonight, they’re having cupcakes. With my kids, I can guarantee there won’t be any leftovers.

    Bob – Next thing you know, she’ll be in high school.

    John D – It’s never easy not being home for things like this, but with our jobs, you take the good with the bad.

    JT – Thanks!
