Thursday Thirteen #23 "Facts about My Daughter"

header by samulli

Visit Thursday Thirteen for more participants.

Since it was my daughter's birthday last Saturday, I thought of 13 things about her.

1. She was born February 28th, 2000, at 3:16 am. One more day and she would have been a "leap year baby."

2. She weighed in at 11 lbs. 1/2 oz! and 22 inches long.

3. She started walking 2 weeks before she turned one.

4. She went to preschool for two years. Starting at 3 yrs. old. She wanted to, because her brother was in school, and she wanted "friends too!" (her words)

5. People say we look alike, but we have totally opposite personalities. She is a lot more outgoing then I was when I was her age.

6. She has a stubborn streak.

7. She has a major sweet tooth.

8. She's pretty tall for her age. One of the tallest in her class. Even taller then most of the boys.

9. She loves to dance. She's been taking dance classes since she was 4 years old.

10. She hums to herself. She makes a little noise like humming, when she's eating or even doing something she likes.

11. She's kind of "picky." She's somewhat picky on what foods she eats, clothes she wears, etc.

12. Once she likes something she goes whole hog. Weather it's American Girls, Hannah Montanna, or the latest Littlest Pet Shop. She's got to have it and have it all.

13. Writing this makes me think, "Oh boy, I'm in trouble when she gets to be a teenager!" But I couldn't love her anymore then I already do!

Here's one of my favorite pictures of her, when she was 3 years old:

  7. She'll probably end up just as glad to no be a leap year baby so she wouldn't have to listen to people constantly joking about her age.

  8. Awww, she's was adorable at three. Love the curls. Wow, she was a big baby. I bet she slept through the night the moment our brought her home. Thanks for stopping by today.

  9. Hi Sue,
