The day before her baby brother was born Mary Jane turned eleven. Henry had an extended stay in the nicu, I was recovering from a c-section and trying to keep this household running. I never did get to write about her birthday. I don't want to let the year pass without writing about her and about who she is right now.
Her nickname is sweets. That is truly what she is. She smiled at me when she was a week old and has been smiling ever since. She is my right hand "man". She loves her siblings intensely and is always willing to play or help; Most of the time with a smile.
At the age of seven her first ballet teacher came up to me and told me she was very musical and was a natural when it came to rhythm and music. I have watched her blossom and grow into a beautiful ballerina. I wish I could dance like her! I am not exaggerating when I say I could watch her dance all day. It is incredible to see how God has gifted each one of my children. It is a beautiful thing to watch. Mary Jane, you are blessed, and it is a blessing and a privilege to be your mom!
