Happy Birthday Meredith

My sweet baby (yes she is still my baby, just like her sister) turns 3 today. Where has the time gone? I swear last week she just started walking and talking. Now she runs full speed and will talk to you all day long.

3 years ago today I was anxiously awaiting her arrival, dodging all those in my house that could eat breakfast (no food after midnight for a c-section). In my mind she was a boy, that was my hunch from the beginning and all the clues from some of my pregnancy issues said boy as well. But alas, when doctor told Bill to tell me what she was I was shocked and overjoyed. She has been bucking the system ever since and I don't expect that to change anytime soon.
She has turned in to quite the little helper and a wonderful big sister. I am very excited about this birthday because she understands what it is and can't wait to eat cake and sing. Today we are having her pictures made and will do things she likes.

Happy Birthday to my first born.

*Pictures are from Meredith helping me make brownies last night. She couldn't wait to lick the bowl.

The pictures are adorable -- some of the cutest ever -- and it's a blast to read about gender expectations, bucking the system, being a good helper, all of it. I may complain that social networking systems are replacing F2F interactions, blah, blah, blah, but a standing O for blogs today. It's a DELIGHT to watch your sweeties grow up. Thanks for being such a good mom to post...
