Number Four Turns Three

Three years ago, today, I got the very best Christmas gift I've ever gotten (and I can't imagine it ever being topped). Three years ago after a month of being turned away at the labor and delivery door because my contractions just weren't "good enough", and I'd sworn that I wouldn't go back until my water broke or my doctor would induce me, I got the best contractions ever. And that's really saying something since with the first three, by comparison, I had it way easy. Three years ago my youngest, Roselyn Elizabeth was born. At 9:25 in the morning, weighing 8pounds and 15 ounces, with lots of brown hair and big brown eyes.


Having a girl is so much fun, after having three boys. I really wasn't sure what to do with her sometimes, but I think I figured it out. I love playing dress up with her, and fortunately so does she. :)
Yes, my little princess has definitely gotten bigger (and more menacing) over the years and I can't believe how fast it's passed. Today I started, what I hope becomes a tradition, of spending "girl time" together. I took her to Club Libby Lu and got her hair done (we went last week and got her ears pierced) and then to the Picture People to have birthday portraits done. She looked her fabulous princess self today!

Happy Birthday Rose!

I wish we still had Club Libby Lu here...but they are all gone. I am sure the girls would love to go when we go to Chicago...

Did you see that the Blogher registration is open?

OMG she is so beautiful! You lucky girl having 3 boys and then a girl. Hubby tried to tell me if we try again we could have a girl. I told him no way I'll just have another boy to have to close the lid down for. Even the fish is a boy I can't win ... LOL. Congrats and a Happy Birthday to your precious little one.

Thanks for checking out my blog. Sure you're welcome to come over for cookies. Hmmm I guess a virtual cookie would be a easier idea. So I'm sending a virtual cookie not the kind that blog down your system but a good yummy one ... LOL.
