March 14, 1953

A girl! Yeah, it was a big deal. After a house full of 4 boys, then comes sweet, little me. I hear that my Dad did a little jug, I mean, jig (how prophetic was that?) outstide the hospital when I was born. WHERE DID THE TIME GO??? 56, right? Wait, let me do the math. I honestly don't remember! Okay, that's right.

We did a little work today, and then came home and took a nap...mmmm! Really, after the last few weeks, I can't think of a better way to have spent my birthday. I'll go into some detail about the picture tomorrow!

Happy Birthday!! It was a big deal in my house too when I had my little girl after 3 boys. I didn't know it was possible for me to pop out a girl:) Did you keep your brothers hopping just like my little diva? Enjoy your special day!!

If you mean by "hopping," did I TELL ON THEM? Wuhl, yeah! They were evil, teasing, monsters! Ha!
But I love them. Okay, truth be told, I didn't even really know the two oldest, but I think at least 3 would, today, do whatever it took, if I truly needed it. That's blood...
I am here due to poor birth control, but they were happy that I was a girl! :)

Many happy returns, youngster. I had to wait until I went to college before I acquired a sister (not a real one but enough of a friend to be the best person at my wedding).
Fortunately I have a wonderful brother to make up for it.

Happy birthday - we are very close in age! I am the middle child, but without all of the angst that goes with it (I think). Sounds like you had a great day.
