Birthday Weekend

Our Lilllia Paige turned 5 on October 3!  Gramma and Grampa came here for the weekend to celebrate!  We went bowling, out to eat, to the apple orchard, and had a little gift opening.  Lillia was delighted with all the activities and loved having my parents here to celebrate with her!

 Lillia's new birthday outfit. Thanks aunt Carrie!

 Happy Birthday!  5 candles in her Angelfood Cake

 Lillia's favorite thing she got as a gift...the one thing she really wanted....a Big Sister button!  (so she could be like Daniel Tiger!  Who knew she was so easy to please?!)

 Even Brandon got to open a belated birthday present....MEAT from Fareway!  :)

Happy Birthday Lillia Paige!  We love you!

Almost 5 years ago, exactly....

I woke up with a few sharp pains.....FINALLY!  Labor was just beginning at 11:30pm and I was about to embark on a 24hour labor journey to meet the sweet baby girl I had been dreaming about for 9 months.....

Lillia Paige turns 5 tomorrow!  How can that even be?  I don't feel "old" enough to have a 5 year old!  She's not a toddler, I can no longer shop for her in the "baby/toddler" section, she can out-eat me at breakfast EVERY SINGLE MORNING, she's moving out of being completely dependent and moving into the ability to be more's a little surreal that my first baby will now use all of her fingers on one hand when showing people how old she is! 

A happy birthday post coming tomorrow!
