Tell Me Thursday - Three Years

Few Hours Old
Three years ago today, at 10:32AM, this amazing child was born.

She is my sunshine and my laughter. She knows how to bring a smile to my lips in a moment.

She is wonderfully stubborn and independent -- two traits I believe will carry her far in life.

She is my baby girl - forever and always - although she is quick to tell you that she is NOT a baby.

She loves books, food, and being outdoors. She fits perfectly into our family and helps keep us all young.

She is devoted to her Aunt Bunny. (and that devotion is returned) She is fiercely attached to her brothers, as they are to her.  I hope those strong bonds are lifelong. She is loving and kind and helpful.

She is the daughter of a currently exhausted mother -- who wishes she had time and energy to write a more eloquent post celebrating her third birthday.  We'll celebrate tonight with her grandparents, uncle, and aunt. We'll enjoy the dinner she chose -- chicken and rice.  We'll shower her with gifts and I can't wait to see  her reaction to the sterling bangle I had made for her that is engraved "Lydia -- Warrior Princess"  Because, really?  That just about sums her up!

  2. Happy Birthday Lydia! Thank goodness the bracelet doesn't say "Lydia, Fish Princess". Though Kraig (who I don't know) might like that...
