Today our oldest has crossed a big bridge. She is officially a TEENAGER!
My, oh my, how blessed we are that God gave us such a holy, respectful, smart, beautiful, sweet child as our firstborn. Ever since #2 was born #1 has been my second pair of hands. She started with getting diapers for me so I could change her brother and now she makes meals for us and helps watch the kids too. She'll make an amazing wife and mom some day. She's more than prepared!
This picture isn't a great one of her, but I'm posting it because it helps describe who she is in so many ways. She's a big girl now, but she is still capable of having so much 'little girl' fun. She may be the oldest in the family which at times is super hard, but she sits down to play with her siblings all the time. Whether it's a tickling war or a board game or just sitting down to chat she is aware that her siblings love her and want to be with her and she knows not too many years from now she won't live in this house with us anymore. She truly treasures her family and she goes out of her way to let us know that. She's a phlegmatic and mostly an introvert. She loves reading, playing volleyball, spending time with family and friends and being funny. She also love organizing things which sure pays off around the house ; )
Breakfast: Starbucks with Mom- She chose a White Chocolate Mocha Frap and banana bread.
Lunch: at home with siblings, burritos
Dinner: Date with dad, on another night because tonight we have volleyball tryouts! Ice cream at Sweet Frog, one of her favs, as a family after tryouts!
We love you so much #1! We are so proud of the young lady you are becoming! We look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with you.
Happy 13th,sweet girl!
