Happy Birthday, Tigger!

Tigger was our first - and for six years only -September baby. Of course she was supposed to be an October baby. Instead she came four days early.

That's the one and only time Tigger has ever voluntarily been early for anything.

Our Tigger marches to the beat of her own drum.
Tigger is an orange belt now and she tells me she's almost ready to promote again. After a slightly rocky start in TKD, it's now one of her favorite things. She also learned to swim this summer. She went from being kind of afraid of the water to loving it. On Labor Day, when it was too cold for the rest of us, Tigger jumped right in and swam for awhile. Her favorite thing is to swim underwater. That's quite a change from a year ago!
She's the best little babysitter we have. She is patient, gentle and skillful with babies and little ones. She's super smart. And even though she tells us she doesn't like to read, we often find her curled up with Sweet Pea on her bed or on the couch reading away. I did a double take the other day because the feet poking out from behind the great big Greek Myths book were not Polly's. Tigger liked that book so well she read it twice in one day.
Tigger's grown up so much in the past year but one thing doesn't change: she'll always be my baby!

  1. Happy, happy birthday to our wonderful Tiggeroo! I didn't have a chance to blog about the big event of turning "a handful plus two" because my own computer was elsewhere today. But the love and wishes are just as real!
