…but she turned nine anyway. Last June, in fact. (Like I said, I’m catching up.)  In nine years, Megan Rae has proven herself to be:

inspired and delighted

a loving and patient big sister

a force on the basketball court (especially under the tutelage of Coach Grandpa)

musically talented; she’s learning the violin while teaching herself the piano

a phenomenal fashionista. this was the 4th of July/Stadium of Fire ensemble. i thought she hit it out of the park.

a gifted maker and keeper of friends

a thoughtful, perceptive, kind, intelligent, funny, clever, responsible, organized, talented, affectionate, compassionate daughter whom our family adores, needs, and is deeply grateful for.

Happy Birthday, Moogley!  As our beloved middle child you really are (in your own words) the cream inside our oreo.

  1. I cannot believe she is 9. Seems like just last year we had dinner at your Mesa house and Grace and Megan were newborns. What HAPPENED? We got old, and so did our little girls. She’s darling and I too, wish we lived closer so our kids could be friends. Maybe they’ll be roommates at BYU.

  2. I love Megs! She is a kindred spirit. Wait, that sounded conceited after that post, but I just mean that I adore her in so many ways! You are a great mom, Jen. You have amazing kids and I wish you would move to Utah so they could rub off on my kids just a little bit!

  3. She is so adorable. I can’t believe how fast the time flies! Your family is blessed to have such a sweetie.

  4. We LOVE MEG! How did she get so lucky to have such straight teeth? Maybe you can use the money you’ll save on braces to get that pool. Hope things are going well for you guys. Love ya!

  5. I love Megan! She is all those things and more! All your kids inspire my kids to be wonderful people – this is the main reason we need to be closer!! Love you Megs!
