Seven. We celebrated your seventh birthday today. And while it seems unbelievable that time is passing so quickly, all I have to do is look at your beaming smile and see that it is indeed true. As your big sister put it last night, "You don't look six anymore." And you don't act six anymore either, just this morning you got your own bowl of cereal and since I was drying my hair, and she was hungry, you got your little sister a bowl as well.
Your birthday marks "triplet day" at our house. Some kids would dislike splitting the focus of their special day, but you take it all in stride and embrace being the youngest of the "triplets" for just one day. I suspect it has something to do with the unique relationship you three share.
|I'm certain it was just yesterday that you three were all three...|
You and Kylie had talked about playing with your dolls this afternoon, but it was a beautiful NC "pre-spring" day, a lovely change from the dreary rain and cold we've been experiencing lately...fitting weather for your birthday!
For the two hours your youngest siblings slept, and even for a while after they got up, you and your two amigos played "adventure explorers" outside.
|we were experiencing brief shutter sticking issues...|
And dessert. You didn't care about cake or ice cream or pie or any of the traditional birthday desserts. Nope, not you. Your request was to have s'mores. So there were no candles to blow out on your birthday this year ~ though we did have to blow out a few marshmallows.
DQ, I love that instead of being a follower, you march to the beat of your own drum. People are drawn to you and I have no doubt that it is because you radiate the Father's love well. Seven looks like it is going to be your best year yet!
Keep twirling my beautiful girl!
