Happy Birthday Charlotte!!!

I can't believe our Pixy Shoo-Shoo is 7 years old today!!! I remember clearly the day we found out we were having a girl. Rick and I were sure she was a girl but the ultra sound was the true test. I took Nina (then 5) to see the ultra sound with me. She wanted a baby sister sooooooo badly. She had been praying every night for one. The entire family was rooting for a girl. I even had the perfect name picked out, Charlotte, because it was the name of my beautiful and wonderful mother and it happened to be a beautiful name too! As the ultra sound tech did her measuring she asked me what I thought it was. I said,"Girl"with confidence! When she was done she confirmed GIRL. Nina was soooo excited she started to get teary eyed (me too). When we returned home, my sister was there. She had been watching the two boys while we were gone. I told Nina to cover her face and run up to her room crying (I new she would be a dead giveaway if I didn't have her leave and hide her face). It worked like a charm. My sister sadly said, "Oh, It's a boy!" Then I said,"No! It's a GIRL!!!" And we hugged and jumped and dance around the room9totally Baliwood like, no joke). And when she came into the world she melted her Daddy's heart from the moment he saw her. He has a way with the babies right after they are born. He just starts singing and talking to them and they look at him and stop crying. It is soooo cute, you have to see it to believe it!

So Happy Birthday my baby growing up too fast! You are a little pixy straight from heaven!
