The Princess

This is the Princess. She is the baby of the family and she is just a little bit rotten. She is what I call my bonus baby. We had two boys and thought we were through. HA!

We almost lost her when she was born. She was very sick from birth and we had to transfer her to an NICU unit in Montgomery, AL. About two hours away from home. She was there for a week before we were able to bring her home.

Her Daddy and her brothers had never held her until she was a week old. From the moment they all laid eyes on her they were lost to her charms. They spoiled her and catered to her every whim until one day......I hear "Mama do something with her....she is so spoiled!" Too late! You guys did it!

She is a Daddy's girl and to this day she still sits in his lap even though she is now 14 years old. Our bonus baby. Oh what a joy she is!

My little princess is not comfortable with praise. When you tell her she has done something good she just shrugs it off like it does not matter but, I know that deep down inside she does need to know that we are proud of her.

She is a smart little princess. She can find anything on a computer. She can make things and put a jigsaw puzzle together in no time flat. She has started to take some pictures with her camera and they are really good!

The little princess is growing up. One day she will leave us (but don't tell her Daddy) and she will be on her own. I don't know what she will be but, I know that it will be something special. I know this because she is oh so special now!

Our little princess is a beauty even though she does not think so. She has the most beautiful brown eyes that sometimes turn to gold. She has a smile that lights up a room....when she allows you to see it. Mama's little princess and Daddy's little girl. Our precious little bonus baby......only not a baby any more.
