Sweet Mickas…Rani

Baby Chapman was born 9th December 2001,a day after my brothers birthday, after a 4 hour labor barely making it into the birth suite, almost born in the hallway. Baby Chapman as i call her ( because she didnt get named for 3 weeks) was #3, our 3rd daughter.

We finally settled on Jade Rani for her name. But she was always Rani. We never called her Jade! She made Cara a sister twice, and Dakota a big sister. My 3 girls:)

rani has always been cheeky

she was my ‘pinchy baby’. She would come up and pat your arm, with that super cute smile, then, PINCH!!

Rani struggled when she started school. My cheeky, sometimes downright nasty daughter was painfully shy. She bravely struggled through 2 years, me always being told ‘she just doesn't know it’ when I had pages of proof that yes, she did know it, she was just too shy! Since we moved, and she switched schools, to a tiny country school, she has improved SO MUCH!! I am very proud of her:)

Rani loves cuddling,bug catching, tormenting her brothers and sisters, dancing, Littlest Pet Shop, baby animals and reading. She is also loving her new scooter ( i am loving it too). Right now, as I write this, Rani is running naked screaming from Jai, who is chasing her with a bread packet. Thats Rani:)

Biggs wants one of those scooters so bad she can taste it!! She is clumsy like her momma so I am afraid to get her one--I KNOW ER trips would follow soon after :)

The tim tams---what can I say---except that they are sooooo delicious! I was just going to have one before bed-HA!!! 5 later I went to bed licking my lips :)
soooooooo yummy!
thank you again for them!

I love that she didn't have a name for 3 weeks! Too funny. She is a couple months younger than my 3rd boy. I'm impressed that she is driving a scooter-go Rani!
