Happy Birthday, Maggie



Maggie has turned 8! It seems like just yesterday I was bringing home another Christmas baby. It was so fun to have a girl again after those four boys. She is fun and energetic. She loves to sing and dance and may be my last shot at having a child who loves the theater like I do. She loves to play dolls and loves to keep up with her brothers. She's always up for a little football game. We have so much fun watching movies together and shopping together. Maggie began sleeping with me when Jay left when she was ten days old and more nights than not she is still in bed with us. She brings so much joy to me and so much frustration to her brothers. She delights her father, most of the time. I'm afraid that she may be a bit spoiled and not as easy to continue raising as her sister was but whose fault is that. She has a kind heart and loves animals. I love you, Mags.
Keep up the good work and congratulations on deciding to be baptized.

So many birthdays! Giselle and I slept with my mom for the a very long time(obviously for the same reasons--our dad was always gone!) Congrats on deciding to be baptized, Maggie! Happy Birthday!

Cute pics of Maggie--what a beautiful girl--such a good combination of you and Jay. Like Chelsea said - she and Giselle slept with me, Giselle says until she was over ten (I think it was twelve when Earl retired and came home). She says she laid outside my bedroom door and cried for many nights once he took over her spot in the bed. I can hardly believe that, because if I didn't let them in the bed to sleep, he did! I thought I would get to see pics of you with your cast and laying around trying to recover???? Happy New Year and we are still waiting on word for the new baby!
