Happy Birthday to Litli-Geysir

Hún á afmæli í dag

Hún á afmæli í dag

Hún á afmæli hún AAH

Hún á afmæli í dag!

Today my baby girl officially becomes an adult – she’s 18 years old!

Now, what I can’t figure out is how she went from this

AAH ca. 1994

to this

AAH ca. 1998

to this

AAH ca. 2003

to this

AAH 2009

In the time it took me to blink both of my eyes.

Spring has most definitely sprung! It was sunny this morning, then turned hazy and lazy, and now there’s a very gentle shower out there. Currently temps are 6°C [43F], sunrise was at 6:27 am and sunset due for 8:34 pm.

    Oh, I like the pose in that last picture.

    Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter! Hope you both enjoy an unforgettably wonderful day.

    Guð minn góður — hún er rosalega falleg! You must be a proud mum:’) And I wish her “til hamingu með afmælidag”! (I cannot promise any of that was 100% grammatically correct…)
    P.S. Agree with JoeInVegas — she’s looking so “L.A.” in that last pic.

    Very best wishes to AAH for this momentous day, and a stern frown for wearing such high heels on a nice wooden floor, the marks will never lift out!!

    She’s gorgeous at every age! Happy birthday to AAH!

  • LaTanya April 6, 2009, 6:09 pm

    Cute pics. Very cute shoes on the last one. Enjoy this very special day!

    Happy Birthday to the beautiful daughter! She’s definitely rockin’ that look!

  • alda April 6, 2009, 7:23 pm

    Thank you, everyone!
    That last pic was taken just before she went to a dance with a “ghetto” theme. Hence the sunglasses – and pose. 🙂

    congratulations to A. (AH) and also to the rest of the family.

    (Do you in Iceland have the habit to also congratulate the rest of the family? In Belgium we don’t do that, but I picked it up from friends in The Netherlands.)

  • alda April 6, 2009, 7:54 pm

    Grif – yes indeed, we have that custom here!

  • Jessica April 6, 2009, 7:56 pm

    That was for a “ghetto” theme? That was the everyday style when I lived in California. LOL

    Happy birthday!
    Reminds of the questions I’m asked after telling stories about my wandering the outback of Colombia. People ask me if it as dangerous as they say. I tell them yes but not in the way you’d assume. I tell them that it is dangerous because every ten minutes you fall in love with all the beautiful ladies. If I was still 18 then I’d be in danger of being chased out of Iceland by a protective parent after meeting the beautiful AAH. 🙂

    Til hamingju með daginn, hún er nákvæmlega fimm árum eldri en mín litla skotta sem varð að táningi í dag… 😀

  • alda April 6, 2009, 11:30 pm

    Hildigunnur – til lukku!! Skemmtileg tilviljun. 🙂

    Jessica – I think that’s the closest thing she had in her wardrobe. She’s not really the ghetto type.

  • andrea April 6, 2009, 11:53 pm

    Wow — she is stunning!

  • Andrew April 7, 2009, 4:24 am

    It all happens so fast! Did you do anything for her birthday?

  • Peter Norton April 7, 2009, 6:33 am

    Thanks Alda,
    My little girl passed 18 last October!

  • mary April 7, 2009, 8:25 am

    Happy day to all of you.

  • alda April 7, 2009, 10:13 am

    Andrew – we celebrated on Sunday. She did her own celebrating on her birthday. 🙂

  • Runa Price April 7, 2009, 12:41 pm

    Congratulations to AAH and the rest of the family. As I recall I had a fabulous year when I was 18 and I wish AAH the same!

  • James April 7, 2009, 2:42 pm

  • Ólöf Auður April 8, 2009, 3:29 pm

    Hahaha! Frábærar myndir! Til hamingju með Aldísi;)**

    Happy Birthday! And here’s to many, many more.

  • Rozanne April 9, 2009, 5:01 pm

    Happy Birthday, AAH!

    She is beautiful!!!!!!!

    I like those shoes in the last photo, but yowch, I’d never be able to walk in them. They look great on AAH, though.
