April is the Month of the Military Child, and so I’m celebrating MINE! I hope you’ll take a moment to celebrate the Mil-Kids in your life!
It only seems fitting to round out the Month of the Military Child with the sweet little milkid who rounded out our family.
Alli was a surprise baby … in a big way. When Sydney was born, we took steps to make sure she’d be our last. Our choice was that two blessings were plenty. Thankfully God had bigger plans for us, and nine years after Sydney came along, Alli made her appearance!
Alli is very much the baby of the family. She’s smart and quite the talker. She’s silly and makes us laugh all day. She’s also a bit spoiled (and possibly makes us want to tear our hair out at times as well).
Alli has moved the least of all our kids, of course, but she’s also made the longest move the earliest, clocking in 3500 miles from Connecticut to Washington at the ripe old age of 6 months. She spent her first Halloween on the road at the Mall of America. She spent her first Christmas in a brand new home and celebrated her first birthday while her daddy was on patrol.
And speaking of birthdays, today is Alli’s 4th birthday! So Happy Birthday, my sweet girl!
