Happy Birthday to Roo!

Hard to believe that two years ago I was welcoming a little baby girl into our lives.  What a difference two years makes.  She has a lot to say for just being two, and she keeps up well with her big brothers.  Here she is blowing out the candles on her ice cream cake.  J-man lends a hand with support.

She's not a girly girl much at all.  Not that it surprises me much.  Despite the sea of pink and purple clothes, she hates to wear anything in her hair (forget barrettes and pigtails for now...), and would rather be digging in the dirt and running with her brothers than playing with dolls.  Which, honestly, is fine by me.  At the same time, there is a certain tenderness to her that the boys didn't have at the same age.  She loves the kitty cats and tries to pick them up or smother them with hugs every chance she gets.  I'm looking forward to seeing where this sweet little personality goes.

Liam got some snap circuits for Christmas, and he 's been counting down the days until he could use them to play Happy Birthday for his sister.
