Happy Birthday Virginia Grace!!

This is a little belated , but I want to wish my little sister, Virginia Grace McDonald, a happy 6th birthday.

I remember the day she was born, we weren't allowed to see her because the doctors told us that she was having breathing problems. We all cried and cried. We were finally allowed to take her home from the hospital a week later and I was able to hold my beloved baby sister for the first time. I'll never forget her beautiful little face looking up at me, her curious eyes darting from one sibling to the other. We knew she was special from the moment we saw her.

She's bigger now. She can dress herself, make her own bed, and read all on her own. She wears an intelligent pair of glasses and she can ride her own bike...she's growing up so fast! But we'll always remember the wonderful day that she came into the world. A blessing from Heaven. We love you, Virginia Grace!

Happy 6th Birthday!!



p.s. Her birth date is March 12th.

Happy birthday to her! I don't remember her... I guess it's been a while!

I wonder why we don't celebrate the mom on the child's birthday because the mom was the one that carried the child for 9 months, went through labor pains, etc.

LOL, Joe!

Hi Darby,

Yes, that is one of the reasons she is named Virginia Grace - after the state of Virginia. I became a Christian when I lived in Virginia (it's where I received "Grace"). Virginia was also my birthmother's name. :-)

Darby said...

That is really cool! Thanks, Mrs. M!

Joe McLean said...

sierra candler said...

Darby, She didn't go to it, but she did go to the Liberty Day ball, she can tell you all about that! Love you!

Elissa said...

Maybe she did fall off the ends of the earth...

I think she's dead!

Joe McLean said...

Yeah. I seen a mushroom cloud off to the east a few weeks ago. I was wondering what happened. I guess it blew up Jessica but not Tiff since she blogged the other day.

Darby Sproul said...

Maybe she got captured by aliens!

Darby Sproul said...

Hey Jessica! Guess what? The Pirates beat the Astroes last night 4 to 2! Hee-hee. :D Also Nativity Story is out on DVD now.

Elissa said...

Darn! I was wondering who won... now I'm glad I didn't watch...

Moi said...

Not to fear: as far as knowledge can reveal, Jessica still occupies the wonderful, wet land of Illinois--she was last seen on Sunday attending church. *nod* Although her family could probably provide a more recent report...

Btw, Jessica, you need to update. :P

Joe McLean said...

Aliens? At church?

Oh, I guess I should quit speed reading. -P <- my alien smilie

Darby said...

It has now been 2 weeks since Jessica's last post and that in my opinion is too long. Jessica if you don't watch out you'll end up like Caleb and only post every year or so! Btw, Pirates beat the Astros again last night 7 to 2. :D
