Mark, Laura (2 week visit) and I are leaving this week to go back to China, so we celebrated Patricia’s birthday a couple weeks early.
Patricia was my biggest baby coming in at 9lbs. 1 oz, but was my easiest delivery.
Patricia at a year old.
Patricia was my most determined child and would not budge on certain things. She refused to drink from a bottle and to crawl. She had Laura and Matt to run around for her and get things done, so why bother moving.
Patricia at 3 years old. She always loved pink and still does today.
Patricia loved the Powerpuff Girls and had one painted on the side of her Camaro.
Patricia receiving her white coat for pharmacy school which she will finish in another year. From an early age she always knew that she wanted to be in the medical field. She also wanted to be a princess and live in a castle (still waiting on that one). I remember one visit to the doctor’s office when she was asked are you going to be a nurse to which she responded, “No, I am going to be a doctor”. Go Trish!
So now Trish has met the man of her dreams and will marry Tom in August. I am guessing that we will see lots of pink.
Happy Birthday Trish, We LOVE you.
Trish and Matt
I also want to wish Matt a happy belated birthday. His birthday was in February when I was not in the birthday mode in China. Certainly don’t want to play favorites with his sisters.
Matt was my “easy” baby and after being a couple weeks late was forced to join the world. He was so happy with everything he did and was always content to watch and play all the “girly” games with his sisters.
Up until Laura turned 5, Matt was 4, everyone thought they were twins as they were about the same size.
Matt enjoys working for Disney and LOVES his Dallas Cowboys.
Matt at 14 years old.
Matt has great taste and picks out the best gifts for his mom.
Thanks Matt for all the wonderful years you have given us. A bunch of thanks for being my blog adviser. We LOVE You.
