Annie is our miracle baby. A gift from God that no one saw coming. She is the light of my life and I've discovered an indestructible bond that a Daddy can have with his little girl.
She is also a demon child. (See photo of tantrum above). I don't know if it was the way she came into the word or if it's just the way God made her, but she definitely has an opinion about everything around her and expects everything to happen NOW. When she doesn't get what she wants, screaming and pounding and flailing and crying...it's enough to make you lose your mind.
My parents, who are regular readers of this blog, will probably find this humorous and somewhat approprtiate. After all, there was probably no child more strong-willed than me, and I guess I was destined to have a strong-willed child to restore order and justice to the universe. I had it coming. They have two copies of "Raising Your Strong-Willed Child"-- one for me and one for my sister. I guess I'll have to borrow a copy.
