I have to preface this post by saying that the kids don’t usually have a week long birthday. Somehow, this year we have had (so far) 5 days of birthday for Lily. She has gotten a gift, package, card with something in it, every day since Saturday. Unfortunately it is not ending soon because she still has a party/get together with friends on Saturday. Jacob is kind of fed up with the whole experience and has been asking daily if it is his turn yet.
First is the card from the Grandparents Lee. She got a stack of cash that she is just itching to spend. My mom thought that she might enjoy a little shopping spree with her very own money so we are going to do that possibly Sunday. She wants to do it after the party so that she doesn’t get 2 of the same thing. Clearly, common sense is present! :)
She got a Fancy Nancy dress from Auntie Esther for her and for her monkey. Unfortunately, Hannah is about the same size as Monkey is and thinks that the dress is for her. Lily agreed to let Hannah borrow it when Monkey isn’t wearing it. :) So cute!
The rest of the day was spent watching movies, playing and then doing the lenten dinner and service.
I can’t believe that my baby is 5 now. She seems to be getting very big, very quickly and I am so confused as to how I should feel about the whole thing. I love to see her mature and get older but I miss all of the cute baby things about her.
The eternal crisis of the parent!
So, Happy Birthday Bug! I love you so much!
