Today Jessie turned 9. Such an easy baby, actually easy pregnancy, easy delivery, easy everything. She slept through the night at 7 weeks, smiled and laughed her way through her first year.
She loves her family, her friends, her animals, school, her teachers and tries (sometimes too hard) to please everyone and make them happy. But she is not afraid to go her own way if she doesn't agree with something. And so far, she doesn't give a fig what other people think. If she likes it, she is happy and to heck with everyone else.
She is accident prone, graceless, and clumsy, yet she never quits trying or believing that she can do it. She cannot walk and chew gum at the same time (seriously) and has been known to trip over thin air, but she is always up for a game of chase through the mud. She would be involved with every possible after school activity that she could. She loves to cheer and she loves to dance.
No, that is not wine in her glass, it's KoolAid!The chickens terrify her, but she thinks nothing of walking in the pen with the bull and the older cows. Her steer calf for next years 4-H project has been dubbed "psycho" but she is 100% optimistic that it will be halter broke by the time fair rolls around.
Happy Birthday Jessie!!
