April 7th…

This morning Megan woke up bright and early, got dressed, brushed her teeth, and fixed her hair.  By 6:45am she was ready for the day. I asked her why she was up so early?  Her response was, “Mom, it’s my birthday and I don’t want to waste a minute of it!”

Today we celebrated Megan’s seven years of life!  Seven years ago we were blessed with a beautiful baby girl!

Megan’s spirit is amazing, you can feel it radiating from her very presence.  Our lives would not be the same without her!

Megan is our “little mama”.  She is the quintessential big sister, looking after her little sisters and big brother too.  She is always ready on time or early.  Yes, I gave birth to a child who is forever early, coming from Drew and I know that sounds impossible, in fact she made her arrival five days before her due date.  It’s just a part of who Megan is.  She is our most responsible child, our biggest mess maker, oh so very loveable,  and almost always happy (unless she is tired or hungry).  She has the best gummy grin right now, and often looks at you over the top of her glasses…so cute.  She is really into jumping rope, bringing one with her wherever she goes…yeah, she loves it that much!  She loves playing dolls, Barbie's, Littlest Pet Shop, house,  hospital or anything that mimics our “real” life.  She and Sophie “escape” on the weekends into their various play plots, only making their presence known when their tummies are rumbling or if there is a disagreement in the land of  make believe.  Arts and crafts are her thing; that girl can do wonders with some crayons, markers, glue, scraps of paper, and a little tape.  She is a wonderful reader who loves reading chapter books or story books to Sophie and Lucy.  She loves shoes, in particular flip flops.  She even jumps rope wearing them!   She is our fruit lover and pasta connoisseur.  She loves school in particular lunch, recess, and gym.
