Happy Birthday to the Third Child!

22 years ago ago today, our third daughter came into the world.  I should tell you that I gave birth to 3 daughters in 3 1/2 years and she is the middle of the youngest three.  She rightfully points out that she has very few baby photos, but in our defense, our hands were a little full and we were somewhat pre-occupied.
R in the middle (AKA "The Third Child" as she calls herself)
 She may have gotten less attention but she turned out OK (actually more than OK).  And for a very shy child, she sure came out of her shell.

Every day is a party when she's around.
We are so proud of her and blessed to have her in our family. 
(In fairness to The Third Child, I must disclose that these are OLD PHOTOS.)  She is so very grow-up and mature now that you would never find her "mugging" for a photo these days.  ;) 
Happy Birthday R!


  1. Children leaving is inevitable but never easy. Sometimes I wanted to say stop growing up and away! You have lovely girls Bonnie.

  2. Awww, what cute photos -- your girls are beautiful! I'm sorry they've all gone for now -- I know how hard that is. Start counting the days until you're all together again!

  3. Sending happy birthday wishes to your daughter!

    You are certainly blessed with a wonderful family :)

    Have a great weekend !

  4. How cute! Actually, she's beautiful!
