So Big!

Lilia turned 5 yesterday. I am so amazed by her. She is such a fantastic child. Smart, cute, talented, and funny...
She loves her family, and we love her back! Last night Lacey cried because I wouldn't let Lilia kiss her goodnight (Lace was sick and I didn't want Lil getting it).

She is loving Kindergarten. I volunteered in her class yesterday, and brought along a treat for the kids. It was so great to see Lil interacting with her class. She has found herself a little friend named Sage (though she isn't so little- she is a whole head taller than Lil). The two of them were holding hands and giggling together during playtime.
She did her first bit of homework this morning, and was upset that all she had to do was count to 20 and write her name 3 times. She wanted to do more!

She is so smart! Anyone who has spent time with her can see that she is very intelligent. Anyone who deals with her often won't be surprised to know that she has been out thinking Joe and I for 2 years now. And I couldn't be more proud!
There isn't a doubt in my mind that Lilia will go places with her life. She will be what she wants to be, she will do what she wants to do, and NOTHING will keep her from her goals.
Now as a mom, my job is to help her set goals worthy of her efforts... wish me luck! She is a very headstrong child, and I love that about her.

She is beautiful! She has her daddy's eyes, her momma's hair (sorry kiddo!) and a smile all her own. I love her cute little nose, and pink shaded cheeks... She has already had her first kiss (So cute!) and there will be plenty more, no doubt (SIGH).

I love her to pieces. I swore I wouldn't cry when she started school, and am not surprised to be able to say I didn't cry- I was so EXCITED for her! But I Did sniffle a bit when she got a fathers blessing... The only thing that makes me love her more, is seeing her laughing and playing with her daddy and little sister.

Together the three of them make my life absolutely wonderful. Happy Birthday Lilia! I LOVE YOU!
