My Wild Middle Child is 8

I can’t believe how quickly time has gone by.

My Neve has always been a handful- practically from the moment she was born.  As a toddler she would get out of bed in the night and make trouble while the rest of us slept.  In daycare she managed to bat her eyes and sweet – talk her way into getting the other kids in trouble so she could play with their toys.

Then there was the phase where she wouldn’t keep her diapers on and one day left a big poop on the coffee table.

*note to all visitors to my home: that table is long gone.

She continues to be wild, wily and whiny, somehow all at the same time, but also charming and fun.  She’s provided us with no end of amusement over the years and I am sure she will continue to do so.

Happy 8th birthday my Neve!

I just adore this one of Neve & Sabine!!!!

Neve is as in love with the sheep as I am.  That’s my girl!

And when did the child that is well – known for looking like this (above) in every picture turn into a young lady that looks like this:

We’re  all in trouble.  That’s all I’m sayin’.
