Twenty-two years ago today, this squawking, slightly yellowish bundle of joy came into our world.
Baby Emily, fresh from the womb.
She grew up into an accomplished, loving and talented young lady who will graduate soon from Iowa State University and will be pursuing a masters' degree starting in June.

The birthday girl!
