    A few years later you and your SO are blessed and surprised by triplets! Two girls and a boy. Each of these children has dark brown hair and green eyes with a spray of freckles, they look quite similar but that is where their similarities end.

    The first girl is spunky and feisty with an attitude as big as she is small. She tends to get messy no matter what she's doing. Her name was given to about 4000 girls in the year you were born. Her middle was given to 60 girls.
