George W. Bush was inaugurated President. And this tiny dumpling inaugurated an era into our lives with less pomp and circumstance, but a whole lot more lasting, meaningful change.
This was her first birthday. I didn't wait until the cake was cooked to let her have her first taste. I mean, batter is the best past, isn't it? Don't know why she doesn't have a bib on, however. What was her mother thinking?
Speaking of her Daddy, walking in his shoes was always a fun game. I'm pretty sure they all had their shoes on inside his size 14s. (Notice J doesn't even have them on the right feet!) These are the shoes SK danced on when she got a little older and wanted to dance with her Daddy. These are the ones strong enough to carry her when her little legs wouldn't carry her themselves.
SK's first kiss. Just couldn't resist putting this in her history. A younger man, too. Adam here is a full three months younger than she is. His twin brother was watching the whole performance, beside their dad, who does seem a bit off-put by the whole thing. SK, seriously, what were you thinking?
Always a fashion-conscious female, even at five, she picked out accessories carefully. You can't see them in this picture, but there are lace socks on her feet too. Oh my, oh my, if I'd only known.
And then there was this...oh wait, how did this get in there? Basketball? SK? It must have been an aberration. But she really did play a season. Loved, er, liked, er, tolerated every minute of it too. Then went back to her music and drama without a whimper of regret.
