Today is Jenna's 12th birthday. She's our tenth grandchild and our 4th granddaughter. Jenna was born at 33 weeks gestation and weighed 4 pounds 1 ounce when she was born.
Although she's always been tiny, she's now growing into a beautiful young lady.
A little while ago, I conducted a short phone interview with her.
Here's how it went.
How does it feel to be 12? Good. So does that mean you're a teenager now? No! That's why there's a teen on the end of thirteen. That's when you're a teenager.
Are you having a good birthday so far? Yeah. And what have you done that's special? We went to Chuck E. Cheese. What did you do there? Played games. Who'd you go with? Amber, Chris, Jack, Dane, Aubrey, and my friend, Keayra. Is she in your class in school? No, I know her from Softball.
Has softball season started? Yeah, just practice. Do you enjoy it? Yep. You're on a new team this year how do you like that? It's better.
Did Jeremy go to Chuck E. Cheese? Yes. You've always been close with him right? I guess. Is he a good big brother. Sure. Are you a good little sister? Yep!
Who else are you close with? Anna
How about your mom and stepdad. Yes and yes.How do you like being an aunt at such a young age. It's fun. Why? I don't know. I guess I just think it's fun.
Do you like school. Kinda. Why kinda? Because sometimes it's boring. What's you're favorite subject? Social Studies. Why? It's easy.
What do you like best about the week at the Christmas house? Playing with my cousins.
What haven't I asked about that might be interesting. Nothing really. How about things you like to do. There's so many things if I told you all of them it would be too long. Give me three. I like playing softball. I like Coloring. I like shopping.
And that was about it except that she admitted to being a huge One Direction fan. (And you can tell by the shirt she wore for her birthday party.)
In conclusion, we're wishing this sweet, wonderful granddaughter a very happy birthday and a happy year to come.
