Every birthday we wake up the birthday person with gifts and cards. Every morning I’ve snapped pictures of Lydia in her pajamas. (Except her first year! I can’t find those anywhere! *sniff*) And every year I’m amazed that she’s another year older. I hope I can always capture the first few minutes of her new year. Maybe at 14 she won’t like it, but I’ll love seeing her innocent early morning face. And comparing it to the year before. To see the growth and development. To see the memories of the previous years—even things she’ll never remember but I will treasure.
one, two, three, four
Today Lydia is dressed in a new outfit, we’re going to eat lunch with Daddy and then go to the movies to see Tangled* (for the 3rd time!). She’s having a big “Golden Hair” party on Saturday in honor of her Golden Birthday (5 on the 5th!) and her new favorite princess with the Golden Hair. (I can’t wait to tell you all about it–it’s going to be so fun!)
