Happy Birthday Roo

Today my sweet, little girl turns 6.


Six things about Roo:

1. She was my smallest baby. She weighed 5 lbs 14 oz. We knew she was early, but somehow we had dates mixed up and think she was about 6 weeks early. She spent almost 3 weeks in the NICU.

2. She is the only one of my kids that has broken a bone -- so far. She broke her wrist by falling off the trampoline about a month before turning 2. She wasn't even jumping. She was sitting on the edge watching her brothers.

3. She is my only child with brown eyes -- like me and my Mom.

4. She is very compassionate. She is very worried about how people are feeling.

5. She is also very strong willed. She knows what she wants and usually can figure out how to get it, but in a good way.

6. She is very tall and skinny and delicate.
