Birthday Girl

Happy, Happy 6th Birthday to our sweet little girl
Maci Alexandra Gordon
Blessing Day -3 weeks old
our little monchichi

Our little ladybug
1 year old

Wow how times does fly. I can't believe our little Maci is 6 years old today. I can remember like it was yesterday of how my water broke almost 4 weeks early in October 2000. Greg was out of town on an away rotation when I called hin to tell him the news. My parents took me to the hospital and stayed with me while Greg drove the 4 1/2 hour drive. We were so nervous to have a baby so early and hoped and prayed that she would be okay. I hadn't gained much weight(only 13 pounds) so we were very concerned that she would be oh so tiny....
Well, after a practically pain free labor(I got an epidural soon after I arrived) and we welcomed our second daughter into the world. She looked very small but ended up weighing 6 lbs. 10 oz. and had a head full of black hair.
We are so blessed and proud to have Maci as our daughter. Here are 6 things we love about you, Maci.

*You are full of spunkiness and are so energetic.
*You are a friend to everyone you meet.
*We love your little mousy voice even when you shreel
*You are an awesome MIDDLE sister. Mackenzi & Maryn are so lucky.
*You love to try new things and never give up until you have succeeded in doing them.
*We love your beautiful blonde hair and sparkly smile.

4 years old

We are so blessed and proud to have you as our daughter. Thanks for bringing such joy and happiness to our family. We love you bunches and bunches. Maci Moo!!

Happy birthday Maci! Hope you have a fun filled day!

You truly are a very special little girl. It is hard to believe you are already six years old. That black hair at birth and the beautiful spun gold hair you have now is really an amazing transformation in only six years. Happy birthday to my little GREAT granddaughter.

So funny that she had all that dark hair at birth and now she's so blonde -- I love that you called her a monchichi! (and what's up with you only gaining 13 pounds? Good grief!)
