1: Friday, June 18, 1993 Atlanta, GA Northside Hospital 8:14 am 7 lbs 11 oz It all started 3 weeks before "Slugger's" due date. At 2:00 am Addie-Marie experienced a persistent stabbing pain in her back after dancing and singing with Mark and friends at a concert. Mark had only been in bed for minutes before Addie-Marie woke him to tell him it was time to go to the hospital. Looking back on it, we now know that Alexis' love for music started even before she entered this world... Alexis Marie Forchette. | June 18, 1993 | Hannah? Ava? Addie-Elizabeth? Alexis? Alexandra?

6: Lexi and A.J. | Dear Alexis, I’m going to miss you so much when you go off to COLLEGE!! You are the best sister I could possibly ask for, and I don’t know what I am going to do without you. You’re so energetic and lively that when your gone, the house is going to be incredibly dull! I’m going to miss all of your inappropriate, yet funny, comments and all the advice on girls and clothes and music. We’re closer than any other siblings I know and I think that’s pretty cool. We don’t fight, and we talk a ton, and I actually enjoy your presence. We never followed through on that promise to adventure out every weekend, but there is still some time left before you leave, so leave some time for me! While your down in Hollywood pursuing your dreams, know that I’ll be here thinking about you, praying for you, and wishing that all your dreams come true. I Love You! AJ 143
