Happy Day Jamie!

I still remember timing my mothers contractions with my snoopy watch the night she was born. My dad and sister went and got us some take-out from Long John Silvers and there was no way I was going to leave my mothers side for a minute. I was so excited for the new baby brother or sister that was coming. It was a baby sister. I remember the day she came home from the hospital and I wasn't the one (Niki) who wanted to go outside and play 4-square or ride my ten speed, I wanted to hold the baby and just be with her. My dad really wanted a boy, and he even bought boy clothes for her. He also wanted to name her Jamie Craig, his name being James Craig but my mom won that battle thank goodness and she was named Jamie C. My dad put those boy clothes on her hoping it might turn her into a boy. And I have to say it might have worked a little bit, she was the only one out of the three of us that played sports. All kidding aside we all know my dad loved her every bit as much as he would have loved a son. So Happy Birthday to my baby sister today, who is all grown up with two babies of her own. She is such a beautiful person, and I am so thankful she is my sister. Have a wonderful day and we all wish we could spend it with you! love you..
