Leigh's birthday

the last picture i left you with was leigh sleeping peacefully in her "big girl bed". we moved her into that bed on march 1st. we have had very little trouble with it. we found her walking around a couple of times very early in the morning or during nap, so we solved that and put a child-lock cover on the inside of her door. she didn't mind it at all (we tried this once when sara beth was her age and she screamed and screamed about it). for some reason today, i felt that i needed to go check on her during nap-maybe because i didn't hear her talking on the monitor as she fell asleep. and this is what i found! she had been in her room only a couple of minutes! i quickly ran and grabbed a camera. after the pic, i picked her up and put her in bed. that was an hour and a half ago and she's still asleep! (notice her outfit: both girls are taking a nap in cheerleader outfits)
since she had already had her party, and sister had just had her birthday leigh completely understood that it was her day! she had a blast! here she is opening up her moon/sun clock!
zeb and i took her to bops for dessert because we didn't need anymore cake around the house for days! you would have thought we had given her a million dollars. at one point she dropped her cone, but zeb picked it up quickly and declared it okay to eat via the 5 second rule!
her great-grandmother doe took her to lunch. leigh ate all of her lunch, plus some of doe's chicken pot pie!

leigh is our mess! she thrives on making people laugh and will find a way to turn the attention on herself! she talks up a storm (like the ENTIRE way from Birmingham to Jackson). i love how she says milk-it is something like muuuulllllk; she calls sara beth-sister; she loves playing baby; she does a good job of keeping up with sister; and she's gonna be a great middle sister! she loves to count--although prefers to start with the number 5--sara says she's just practicing to be a cheerleader; and she loves the abc song! we love you lots leigh!

Cheering is a tiring sport and she is cute even on the floor. Love you Leigh. Honey
