almost 4. Still tiny 29lbs. Full of life...
She was a tiny thing but she was a fire cracker as my Dad would say. Wide open. I remember the night I came home from the hospital... about 6 months after this pic was taken. She was so excited. Michael was a senior in high school. He was video taping... she kept saying "I need my light on, I need my light on!!" So he walked to her room and turned her light on. She said in a very loud voice "THANK YOU, SWEETIE!"
