Over Memorial Day weekend the oldest turned 13. We’re officially in the teenage years! It doesn’t seem possible to have been a parent long enough to have a teen, but there it is.
She told me not to get too mushy because she didn’t want to cry, so I won’t. But I would like to say that her Dad and I couldn’t be more proud of her. We are beyond blessed to be her parents. She amazes us every day with her accomplishments.
Achievements aside, we are more proud of the person she is turning out to be. When someone recently commented to me about how they could see the love she has for her younger siblings in how she looks after them, I thought my heart would burst out of my chest! She’s that kind of girl. Funny, smart, caring, beautiful - she’s got it all.
Happy Birthday Lily! We love you more than you'll ever know!!
yes, my kids are nuts!! please excuse the heaping dose of cheese in the above photos ;-)
