|On the Second Bank of America's steps|
|before retiring the plug|
I had had myself convinced that number three was another boy. I remember pushing this baby out at 1:18 on that hot August morning. And I remember being shocked when I saw she was a girl.
|just 18 months|
There was a wonderful lady I knew, Elspeth (Elsie) Faulkner. She was like an aunt or grandma to me. And I always said that I would name my first girl after Aunt Elsie.

But, I didn't have any girls, I had two boys.
Until August 10, 2007. That's the day I got my Elsie. And she made me laugh and cry.
Aunt Elsie was a beautiful lady, inside and out. She had been married to Uncle Bob for 71 years. She gave me the best marriage advice-don't go to bed angry. She was a singer, she was Scottish, and she told me stories of her life.

And, I pray that my Elsie lives up to her namesake. She couldn't find a better example if she tried.
|she can fall asleep ANYWHERE-last week it was in the cart |
at the thrift store
|loves making eggs|

|new hair cut|
|her favorite tutu|
|her "Barbie" look. I don't even know...|

|sleeping on a table|

|can she wear more gear?|
|picking blueberries-which she is good at, |
because she won't eat them.

She is number 3 of my four personality plus children. She has always loved shopping. And dresses. And dress up. And jewelry. And shoes. And nail polish. Girly to the core.
And I love her. So much!
Happy Birthday, LC!
