|Told ya' she was a natural red head.|
My pride and joy.
My miniature partner in crime.
The kid whose ankles I have so firmly in my grasp she is NEVER leaving home. EVER. Trust me.
Boy-o I love this child.
I can't believe she is 13 years old today.
[ And yes. It is actually a requirement of Mommy bloggers everywhere to state this every time one of our progeny hits a milestone birthday. Look it up: Page #12, paragraph 4, number 63 in the Code Book.]
Y'all are well acquainted with the antics our youngest - and your cards and gifts this week have filled her days with joy. I truly appreciate all the kind thoughts in making my baby girl feel special.
Because that is exactly what Wallene is - a very special little girl. And she is all mine.
Lucky - ain't I?

She was quite literally our surprise. She is the greatest gift Skippy ever gave me. She came into this world two weeks early. I suppose she didn't want to miss out on all the fun.
She is full of mischief and curiosity.
She has her Mother's heart of gold and her (ahem) penchant for getting into trouble was no doubt inherited from me. As her father, I wonder every day how much more I could do for her. It's funny but every day she still makes me feel like uber-dad.
Yesterday? I fed her a bottle. Today? She turned into a teenager. Tomorrow? She will change the world.
She is my Porcupine and I could not imagine life without her.
Thank you Skippy.
Happy Birthday Wallene.
