at 10:12am, four years ago, this little peanut entered the world:

she was our third child.

our biggest baby (at 6 lbs. & 11 oz.).

she was born the “latest” at 39 weeks.

she nursed the best.

(without spitting up).

initially, she slept a lot. ahhhh. she slept. as a newborn. sleep……

*************     *************     **************     *************

now she is so full of personality – it astounds me.

after all we went through while pregnant with her….

(there are so many, MANY stories from week 24-39!)….

after all we went through while waiting for her to be born…

after all we went through waiting for her to walk….

after all we went through with her waiting for her to talk….

after all we’re going through trying to convince her to use the potty….

despite it all, we are SO VERY, VERY thankful that this sweet, stubborn, lively, loving little girl is part of our family.

without her there would be less smiles,

without her there would be less hugs,

without her there would be less kisses,

without her there would be less snuggles,

without her there would be less love,

without her, we would be less.

HAPPY, HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY, SWEET ALEXANDRA!

you are so very, very loved by so many people!
