My Niece

I always wanted one boy and one girl when we were considering having children. However, I got two boys and couldn't be happier. I am a tomboy at heart and if I had had a little girl, she would probably NOT be a tomboy. I do get to borrow my niece from time to time. Her name is Tabitha and she is six years old....soon to be seven in July! She is definitely all girl and wears pink any time she can. She and I had a great time making cookies over Christmas Break. Today, she and Elijah will dye eggs for Easter. It should be a lot of fun!

She will have a little brother come the Fall and she will be the only girl when it comes to all of the cousins. She gets to remain the princess of the group!I am sitting here watching her do the Wii fit and she is too cute!

If I couldn't have a girl of my own, at least I get to borrow one and have her to myself for a day or so!
