On January 12, 2009, a soap actress fell in love all over again with a precious baby girl.

We wanted to take a moment to send Days of Our Lives fave Alison Sweeney’s (Sami) daughter Megan a big birthday shoutout as she turns 14 years old today. To kick off her special day, her mom posted an Instagram story featuring a birthday tiara, a plate and some flowers and shared, “Birthday breakfast for Megan.”

Happy 14th

She then posted a photo alongside her daughter and shared, “I can’t believe Megan is 14 years old! Where has the time gone? She makes me laugh every day. I’m so proud of my brave, determined and independent daughter. Happy Birthday Megan!”

A New Teenager in the House

And for her 13th birthday, as she entered her teen years, Megan’s proud mom started the day by sending her sweet daughter a very special “Happy 13th birthday,” and couldn’t believe how quickly time had flown by. Sweeney then expressed, “Your dad and I are so proud of the young woman you’ve become.”

The actress also shared three beautiful photos of Megan, taken by Skye Richards, posing in a blue party dress. She was seen on the back of a white horse in the first, followed by one carrying balloons and running down a dirt road with a furry friend close behind. And in the last, Megan smiled for the camera with the horse and dog — now that’s coming full circle!

Sweeney talked about how “funny and strong, thoughtful and sensitive, determined and smart” Megan was and expressed how much she is loved and how lucky her and husband David Sanov are to have her as their daughter then closed out the message with, “Welcome to being a teenager!”

Must Love Horses

Megan’s love of horses started at an early age, as we can see in this 2014 photo with her mom, who had been enjoying “a mother/daughter afternoon.”

Fairy Princess

Later that same year, Sweeney shared a colorful collage of her and Megan “making fairy houses,” where Megan said “to put down rose petals as a bed inside the leaf.” Adorable!

Cooking With Mom

And apparently she’s a bit of a chef as well. Sweeney gave followers a glimpse inside a fun day of making “elf pancakes with Megan” and her brother Ben.

Vacationing With the Fam

While on a Vancouver family vacation, Megan took some time out to play and didn’t appear to have a care in the world as she soared high on a swing with cherry blossoms blooming in the background.

“Microfashion” Beauty

In 2015, she found her “microfashion,” as Sweeney put it, with no help from her mom!

First Day of School

She’s as cute as a button all decked out in pink for her first day of school. After Sweeney dropped the kids off, she revealed, “Whew. Now I get to go workout.”

Mom’s Sous Chef

And even the healthiest of snacks are easy to put together. “Making food prep fun helps everyone stick to their healthy resolutions,” the NBC actress expressed with a little assist from her girl.
