Today is Jocelyn's 11th birthday. Yep, do the math. If Madeline's 12th birthday was 5 days ago, then that means that Jocelyn and Madeline are just 1 year and 5 days apart. What? You think I'm crazy? Well, I was, but it has worked out for the best.
Jocelyn was born on August 14th, 1996 and she came almost a month prematurely. But she was pretty healthy and only had a few minor complications. Believe it or not, she was born with a full head of dark dark hair just like Madeline, except she had blue eyes, not brown. With each passing month her hair began to grow in lighter, so by the time she was 7 months old she had curly, marbled, black and blonde hair. People would stop me in the store and ask me if I had highlighted her hair to be that way. Seriously. Who puts harsh chemicals in their infants hair? Anyways, by the time she was a year old she was 100% blonde, a towhead, in fact. Blonde hair, blue eyes. Opposite of Madeline, and totally different in personality as well.
Jocelyn has always been a very sweet little girl, and we have often referred to her as the peacemaker in our family. She tries very hard to please her parents and teachers, and she does very well in school. The last two years she has received the Presidential Academics Award, which means that you are nominated by your teacher because of your attitude and academics. Her teachers love her, because she is always obedient and shows real effort in her work.
I asked her to answer a few questions as well, and here are her answers...
What is your favorite color?
(pretty much anything with Zac Efron will do!)
(pretty much anything sung by Zac Efron will do!)
Favorite flavor of ice cream?
Librarian or school teacher
("I just want to work in a school.")
Favorite vacation place?
One word that describes Jocelyn:
Happy Birthday Jocelyn!
