happy 2nd birthday lily!!!




lily may – happy birthday baby! i can’t believe you’re 2! you are such a big girl! i love:
-the way your eyebrows are always raised when you smile
-how you close one eye and say “cheese” for the camera
-how you always say “daydoo” (thank you) without being reminded
-how you want to be like gracie, but are also so independent
-how you are so helpful with silas
-how you help me set the table every meal
-how you ask if we’re all happy: “happy mommy? happy daddy? happy dace (grace)? happy baby?”
-how you pretend anything is a phone and say “home daddy?”
-how you want daddy and i all to yourself
-how you often give your sister what she wants, gladly
-how you squeeze me when i hold you after naps
-how you are fearless
-how you ask to sit on the island next to me when i cook
-how you say hot – “ha ha ha”
-how you say 2 – “due”
-how you hold your sister’s hand in the car and in the street
-how you miss grace when she’s at school, and always ask to go in her seat when she’s not around!
-how you make up funny names for us, like “mama doe” and “dada doe”
-how even before you could talk you were a great communicator

i love you, lulu! you are a precious, precious girl! i pray that having silas so close to your age doesn’t make you grow up any faster than you already are – slow down! i pray that you never feel like a “middle child”, that you never feel lost or forgotten. i pray that God take your heart into his own and you take Him into yours, that He keeps his hand upon you, that His angels always surround you. i pray that He shapes me into the mommy you need me to be. happy birthday baby!

-mommy

    Happy Birthday Lily! This was beautiful Lindsey! I am sitting here with tears in my eyes – you need to print this off and save it for her. It is going to bless her socks off some day to read all these wonderful things you love about her. I love all those pictures – you can see what a vibrant little soul she is- love it! I hope she has a great day!
