Happy Birthday my sweet baby girl! I can't believe it was just 3 years ago that this little firecracker joined our family...it feels like forever. I can't imagine our family without her. I was looking back at some pictures of her and laughing at all her different nicknames (we are a BIG nickname family): Rooter, Tooter, Little Toot, Choo Choo, Choochie, Roochie Bear...all hold a special place in our hearts.
"Look out world, I have arrived!" I say that now, because it TOTALLY fits her wild personality, but for the first several months she was so quite (hardly ever cried) and so happy to just sit and watch things that my mom commented that she was NOT typical 3rd child and she had better find her voice or her brother and sister would walk all over her! Thanks, mom, I think you cursed us! Avonleigh is by far my most outspoken and headstrong child! I love her strong personality and I know it will serve her well one day.
