Wordful Wednesday-Happy Birthday to Cupcake # 3!

I am taking a break from packing for a family vacation by writing this special post for our dear Cupcake# 3!   As you read this post, our family will be in TN at an amusement park for 2 days and then camping in the NC mountains and I'll be away from a computer all this week and into the weekend.  I look forward to posting about our adventures when I get back!

While we are traveling, our daughter will turn 7 years old on Friday, June 10!  7!? I can't believe it! 

Here we are in the hospital on your birthday!  You had a head full of beautiful dark hair!  We couldn't believe it!  You looked like you had a wig on! :)
Your big sister is wearing a pink t-shirt that says "I'm the BIG Sister" and your big brother is wearing a blue t-shirt that says "I'm the BIG Brother".  I made these shirts for your siblings and wrapped them up for your brother's 2nd birthday.  At his party, they each opened the t-shirts and this is how we told family and friends I was pregnant with you!  It was very exciting to share our joyful news in this way!

Your big sister and brother loved peeking into your bassinet to watch you sleep peacefully! They were in awe of you and loved giving you lots of hugs and kisses!

This picture was taken just before your first mass visit.  You looked so beautiful with your pink and white lace outfit. It was a lovely day to bring you to our church for the first time!

Here you are sleeping on Nana's lap on the beach for your first trip to the beach and your first 4th of July. 

Here you are at 9 months old with your brother and sister  and you still have a head full of beautiful dark hair!  I had to put bows in your hair at 9 weeks old and since you never lost your hair, as many people thought you would, we continued to keep the hair out of your eyes with pretty bows!

  You became a BIG sister on Nov. 19, 2007 when your little sister was born! 

Here you are with another missing tooth!  Happy Birthday sweet girl! You bring so much joy and love to our lives!  We are so blessed to have you in our lives!

Thank you Renee Ann! Thanks for stopping by to wish our sweet girl a Happy Birthday! :)

Hi Holly Anna,
Thanks for stopping in and leaving your nice comment! I just hopped over to your beautiful blog and left some comments! Thanks for joining in on NOBH! :)

Thanks Christine! Our daughter had a great birthday celebrating while we traveled and we had a nice vacation! Now back to the real world of laundry and dishes :)

Thank you Lynda! We had a great trip and my daughter is looking forward to celebrating her birthday with friends this Saturday at her gymnastics birthday party!

Thanks Kim for the kind birthday wishes! Thanks for stopping by to say Happy Birthday!

HI Annita!
That's neat that our children share the same birthday month. This Saturday we are celebrating her birthday with friends at a gymnastics place and she wants a horse cake this year. But, she wants her plastic horse on the top of the cake so I may not have to create a horse from cake. I have to plan out how we are going to do this cake :) Looking forward to seeing your cake and I hope to post about our trip soon! Great to hear from you!

HI Noreen,
Thanks for stopping in to leave your sweet comments! It's always fun to look back at old pictures and realize just how fast time flies! We had a great vacation and I hope to put up a post about it soon! :)
