Two decades ago, at 7:50 am, the world gained another person. Granted, probably more than just one, but the one I know about it the most important person born that day! In honor of my intelligent, beautiful and funny daughter's 20th birthday I will list 20 interesting facts/quotes about Becky.

1. Her full name is Rebecca Elaine, she is named after her maternal great-grandmother Roberta Elaine.
2. Her first smile was at 3 weeks :)
3. Her first word was at 11 months, it was "kitty".
4. At the age of 3 she put on play shoes and lipstick and then said "now I look like a real woman".
5. At 2 1/2 years she talked to Santa at Wal-Mart and then saw him again the same day at Santa's Castle, she refused to talk to him again because she had just told him what she wanted and he should have remembered.
6. When she was almost 3 she would close her eyes and ask "who turned out my eye lights?".
7. Three years old she proudly exclaimed "you are the best mom and dad and I won't ever buy another one!".
8. At 3 1/2 she was asked "what are you good for?" She answered "loving!" (She was right!).
9. Also at 3 1/2 she said "Santa's reindeer are magic if you just use your imagination!".
10. The day before she turned 4 she was a flower girl and when she was 14 she was a bridesmaid.
11. Brian made her mad when she was four and she came crying to me saying "Brian made me lose my temperature!".
12. Looking forward to joining Girl Scouts she wondered when she would be old enough to be a "cupcake"...i.e. Brownie.
13. When she was 4 1/2 she decided that when she was 7 she would know everything there was to know about being a mommy, but she would have to wait until she was MUCH older to be a real mommy.
14. At the age of 5 she got a book about learning to read but she was concerned that she would never learn how. When asked why she thought that, she said "I just have a feeling".
15. Once said "Christmas is not for presents, it is for sharing joy and laughter with your family" She was right and we remind her of what she said to this day.
16. When she was in 1st grade she asked me what "estimate" means. I said "guess", meaning that to be the answer. She said "But I don't know!"
17. She graduated high school number three in her class.
18. She works full time while going to college full time and gets good enough grades to be on the Dean's List.
19. She has had her hair colored at least four different colors...blonde, brown, red and whatever her natural color is :)
20. She is the most intelligent, funny, beautiful, kind, compassionate, loving 20 year old that I know :)
