Happy Birthday tiny dancer

Today is our middle child's birthday.

I know being the middle child must have been tough on you but hey when there are more than 2 someone has to step up to the plate and I think you have done a fabulous job!
Here's a great line from an article on middle children: Middle children are the "risk-takers," often participating in dangerous sports or choosing careers that have an element of danger and/or risks involved. Gymnastics, I rest my case.
You have something in common with J.F.K., Madonna, Donald Trump, Barbara Walters, Bill Gates, Julia Robert, David Letterman the late Princess Diana, all were born in the middle.
I hope you have a great day, thank you for being you!

Once upon a time you were the baby.

Look at those pudgy little "Dib-a-dif" cheeks

Lookin good in your out-door attire!

You told me you wanted a baby sister.........ta-dah.

And you have been a wonderful "sissy"

Sorry we fed her more than you but you will always be the Big sister.....

and a wonderful daughter (see gymnastics on that shirt, I wasn't lying).

My goof-ball........

Our Beautiful "Middle child"

Happy Birthday WE love you!!


  1. Thank you mama for making such a beautiful memoir of the last 30 years! You already know how inspirational you have been to me through the years and i had a wonderful birthday filled with family and friends birthday wishes. Everything i know i learned from you (and dad, a little). Thank you for being the best thing that could ever happen to a girl and i can't wait for you to walk along side me through the next 30 years. You are my mother and my best friend.
    I love you always,
