Happy 12th birthday - “baby girl”

IMG_2445Our “baby girl” turned 12 today…unbelievable! I feel so old when I say I understand how “older” people used to tell me to enjoy the time with them when they are young cause it goes so fast…it does. “Baby girl” as her Daddy affectionately has called her since she was little is a blessing to our family. She has a funny sense of humor and a very contagious belly laugh.  She is our carefree spirited girl…not much gets her upset. It has been a joy watching her grow and mature.  She looks older now with her new haircut.
IMG_2449As our tradition for our kids birthdays we had both sets of grandparents over to celebrate. Blessing #4 chose to order pizza for her birthday meal (our kids are deprived we don’t do carry outs often…) so she was excited. She was even more excited to see the cupcakes we bought from C*stco (something we have never done!-but hey what’s a busy Mom to do?)

After the grandparents left her and Blessing #3 went swimming…these two girls are almost inseparable these days- which makes us happy…most of the time. Except when we have to separate them at the table for giggling SO MUCH U.N.C.O.N.T.R.O.L.L.A.B.L.Y.  its hard to even have a normal conversation during dinner (we could have bigger problems I know).

For their birthdays we agreed to buy Blessing #3 & #4 rabbits. So since February they have been busy researching bunnies, finding breeders,getting the cage ready and supplies ready for the day when they could bring their bunnies home. They found a breeder and had been getting weekly pictures and updates on their bunnies. They were able to pick them up the day before her birthday so they were super excited (to say the least!) It has made mine and hubby’s heart so happy to see the joy the girls have gotten so far from there new pets.  IMG_2504The next day at church her BFF gave her a photo book made from when we celebrated their birthdays together at Bui*d a Be*r she loved that gift.
Love you “baby girl” and thank God for your preciousness and the joy you bring to our family. Excited to see what the Lord has planned for you this last year before becoming a “teen”.
