Thursday, June 23

joyfully counting

It's finally here.  Let's just say that the countdown has been L.O.N.G.

Although I believe the countdown began last June 24th, officially it went up on her wall this winter.
I had to take a picture because I couldn't believe she had this taped to her bedroom wall over the winter to faithfully mark off each day.  I mean, we've had kids that are excited about having the next birthday in the family or having a birthday next month or next week, but our youngest has been thinking about her birthday for about a year!  Not only that, but she's been accumulating a list of things she wanted as presents.  When one of her older brothers recently requested a list of possible ideas for her birthday, I typed out THIRTY-SIX items.  (Of course, it was 37 but she miscounted along the way).  

I have never had a child so birthday c.R.a.Z.y!

Could it be a syndrome that the youngest of the family seems to develop? I have no idea.  

All I know is that her arrival may have come as a surprise, yet God knew there'd be no surprise in how blessed we'd be to have her as part of our family!  

Happy birthday, Lovey!

This is one of the sweetest things I've seen. I hope you get all 36/37 things on your list, Birthday Girl!

We had some change of plans for the day, but I think she had a good day. She's still waiting on some gifts to arrive, Anita, so I'll let you know when we get to the final count.....
