We celebrated a couple of birthdays recently. My lovely little Lu turned five and she is so excited because as far as she’s concerned kindergarten is right around the corner. At dinner on her birthday she asked me if she was officially five yet. I told her yes, she had been five for about twenty minutes. She pushed back her chair looked down at her outstretched legs and exclaimed, “Wow! It worked! My legs really are longer!” We could not stop laughing!
The things that girl says! Today Elle had a little accident with Erik and started crying. Alyx very sternly told us, “That is why we should not keep babies in the house.” We never know what is going to come out of that mouth. She definitely keeps us on our toes.
Elle had a nice little birthday party and woke up the next morning wanting to spend the day like this:
My poor little lady was sick for the next few days, along with Erik (still sick), and Sean. It’s been quite the house to be in this past week.
But there are always moments that make up for the ick. After church all my girls wanted to snuggle with Daddy. Oh, my lucky ladybugs. What a gift to have sisters! What a gift to have daughters. Happy birthday to all my spring babies!
