Birthday's Are Important Around Here!

Today is the Spitfire's Birthday!

This is Spitfire & her Dear friend in California Sari 
The Spitfire was born a month late! She was so tiny because she lost weight in utero. It is rare but can happen and its a good thing I finally got her evicted when I did. At Birth she weighted in at a whopping 5lbs 12 oz.

She still isn't much bigger then a half a minute but what she lacks in size she makes up for in personality!

She is a chatterbox. She is not afraid of anything! I mean anything! she had a tooth pulled yesterday and barely flinched. She loves trees and climbs them often. She loves to wear dresses and doesn't understand why she shouldn't wear them to play outside in. She is crazy and funny and has the funniest sense of humor. She has an adorable smile and the prettiest blue/green eyes.

I often feel like she got the short straw when it came to birth order. She is 6 years younger then her big brother and only 14 months older then her baby brother. I was pretty worn out with a new baby and she just didn't get enough of me as a toddler. We all do the best we can and I can't change what was but sure work towards making it different now.

For her birthday she special requested The German Chocolate Beet Cake find it here, for her birthday cake. So bright and early this morning she put on her new apron, and helped me bake the cake. I need to make the frosting still, you can find that recipe here. I have her favorite meal cooking already, Taco's with the meat cooked all day in the crock pot.

When her dad comes home we will celebrate the day of her birth. She was born at a bright early hour in the morning so she is already 8 years and hours old. :)

Happy Birthday to my wonderful Spitfire. I am blessed to be your momma and I love you.


  1. Happy Birthday, SpitFire! I hope your day is everything you want it to be. And happy birth day, Crystal!

  2. :) Thank you for the acknowledgement. How come us moms don't get more on our children's day of birth? I mean we did do all the work! LOL

    she has had a wonderful day so far, played all day, helped bake a cake and her tooth doesn't hurt anymore.

  3. Tell Kaitlyn Happy Birthday for me and give her a special hug.
