Jenna Corinne

Today is Jenna's 14th birthday.
She was born by emergency c-section in South Bend almost exactly 5 weeks earlier than expected.
Jenna is a very important part of this large family.
And a very important part of this smaller, large family.
And a very important part of this small family.
Last night I interviewed Jenna via telephone.  Here's how it went.
Hi Jenna!  How are you?  Good.  lol
Are you excited for your birthday tomorrow?  Yeah!  Why?  I don't know.  Because I like it when it's my birthday.
Are you looking forward to being 14?  Sort of.
Why sort of?  Because I like being young.
Do you have any special plans for your birthday?  I think we're just going out to eat.  Do you get to choose the place?  Yep!  I'll probably choose Max & Erma's.  I like their food and they have a sundae bar.
What grade are you in?  8th
Do you like school?  Yes  What do you like best about it?  Seeing my friends.
What's not so hot?  It's boring.  How are your grades?  They're good.
What's your favorite subject?  They're all equal.  I just don't like Math.
What do you like to do in your spare time?  Crafts and stuff.
What's your favorite sport?  Softball

What position do you play?  Pitcher and second base.

I hear you're on a new team.  Well it's not really different than the teams I've been on because I'm with the same people.  We're just in a new league.

Are you looking forward to the coming softball season?  Yes, a lot!
How often do you practice?  Twice a week.  And how often do you play?  All the time - in the Spring and in the Summer......and in the Fall.
How did you like your holiday week in Gulf Shores?  It was awesome being with family and going to the beach and going to all the cool restaurants AND it was warm!
How do you feel about being an aunt at such a young age?  It feels normal.
You love your little niece and nephews don't you.  Yes, a lot!

Tell me about your best friends.  I have lots of friends in school but Anna is my best friend.  (It's true.  Anna is Jenna's cousin and they've been besties since the getgo.)

What is your happiest memory?  Going to Alabama
What do you love most about your big brother.  Ummmm.  LOL  He helps me with stuff?
What do you love most about your big sister?  Ummmm, well she's caring and she lets me go to her house.
How would you describe yourself in one word?  Funny
What brings you the most happiness?  Being with my family.
What can you tell us about yourself that we haven't covered in this interview?  Nothing really.  I like to make rubber band bracelets.  I like shopping with my mom.  I like to play catch with my brother.  And, I got One Direction tickets for Christmas.
Jenna's very modest but there's a lot more I could tell you about her.  She's one of the sweetest, most loving girls you could ever meet.  She's considerate and soft-hearted and always seems to be thinking about someone besides herself.  She's very careful to never hurt anyone's feelings and she's helpful, athletic, kind, and sweet.  We love you Jenna and couldn't be more proud of you so we're wishing you your best birthday ever!  Happy Birthday!
