Happy Birthday, #2!

#2 is now Six years old --this is both strange and exciting! I love watching my children age, and with each birthday party, I tend to breathe a sigh of relief. I honestly think it's because it's one more year behind us; one less year to worry about. Of course, that doesn't mean there won't be 60 more years to be worrying...

#2 is delightful, dear reader. I wish you could hang out with her for one afternoon. You'd get a sense of her drama (the girl is seriously a diva! But we're trying to teach her why manipulation is of the devil and why whining doesn't work), her happiness (her laugh is contagious!), her wit (read my post from Monday night), and her optimism (she solves things pretty quickly or already has a Plan B). I love that girl!

Here are some pictures (okay, okay --many pictures!) of her through the years. I'm sorry I don't have anything of her as an infant --that was pre-digital camera in our family. And yes --I'm too lazy to scan them in. Sorry! Just imagine her as super cute. Easy, right?






Happy Birthday, gorgeous girl!

So I didn't know you are having #5 WOW. Congrats. I loved reading your blog. Sorry your sick. We've all got RSV even our 2 month old. I hate it. But we are getting better. Good luck with everything. Get feeling better.
