Happy Birthday 8 Year Old


Dear Lillian,

It is finally your birthday! You have been oh so excited to turn 8 years old. Just last night you were talking about how you would turn 9 after next year.  You love to look ahead and move on to the next thing. You are my: What’s going on today- girl, who’s coming over -girl, what’s is the plan -girl! You are a planner at heart!

You have grown so much this year, not only in height but in maturity. You tried paddle boarding and kayaking this summer and loved it!  You have an extraordinary love for your sister Amelia.  You love to hold, walk, sing and love on her.  You are taking in this new baby thing in great strides.

This year you have learned how to read silently. This is something that she has wanted to do since Kindergarten.  You have already finished a couple of little chapter books.  In addition to all the audio books that you listen to there is a lot of language going in through your head right now.

Dad and I have watched you transition from a little girl to a grown up young lady.  Wherever you are you always love to hang out with the oldest girl around. That might be your aunt or a friend in a new family we are having for dinner.  This summer you helped with our Mobile VBS and helped pass out bibles, paint fingernails, and talk to kids.  You love Jesus and want to others to know him too!

We love you so much 8 year old!


Mom and Dad
