Happy Happy Birthday!

Lexie is 12 years old today. Even if nobody believes her because she doesn't look like it. All 4' 6" of her. No more primary, hello Mutual/Young Womens!!!

She has always been little. When she was born, early, she was all of 5 lbs 7 oz, all skin & bones. She had some lung problems & I had to give her liquid proventil (which is what is in the asthma inhaler she takes now) until she was 18 months old. She was feisty though, that's why she made it. When she was 6 months old I remember walking in to the living room & she had climbed up the front of the entertainment center. She was getting something she had wanted off the top of it! We couldn't keep her down from there. What a little monkey she was, and still is. She is still doing acrobatics to this day & has taught herself many gymnastics moves, some her friends that are in gymnastics can't even do. The family favorite is the one her cousins affectionately call her 'Tina move'. (don't know where they came up with the name) They make her do it over & over again at family get togethers. Maybe I'll have to make a video of it to post here.

Happy Birthday Lexie! We love you.
