Happy Birthday Lydia!

So it was a year ago that I started this blog because one of my first posts was of Lydia's birthday. Time flies, doesn't it? Well, it was Lydia's birthday again, but instead of doing a huge luau for her and all of her friends this year, we decided to let her take ONE friend to Chick-fil-a. We ate lunch and brought them home for cake and ice cream. It was low key and relaxing (except for the unbearable heat) and I had no messes or decorations or party favors or anything and she didn't even know the difference.
Lydia has grown up and matured so much in the last year. She's a whopping 5 now and is starting kindergarten in the fall. Lydia loves to sing, play with her bunny, play outside, pick flowers, learn about medical "stuff," swim, take baths and eat ice cream and popsicles. She is such an awesome big sister to Kate and is so excited to have a little baby brother soon. Lydia is going to be such a great help to us when the baby comes. She can't wait! We love you, Lydia. We love your sweetness, sincerity, love of the gospel, and willingness to help.

Happy Birthday 'Leeya!'

Holy smokes! It is so hard to believe that Lydia is so grown up! We'll always have Lydia to thank for getting Aaron baby hungry!

Awww, the BIG 5! You are so smart to keep the birthday celebrations low-key...especially when your "man child" will be here in no time. I'm so excited for you guys! Good luck as you prepare for him to join the family.

Lydia seriously does look more mature than when I last saw her. Wish we could've been there to celebrate her big 5. That is the most darling note she wrote to Kate! You need to keep that forever! I was missing you a lot the other day and even told Jon that I wished I could just sit down and visit with you. Oh, those days are gone . . . Hope all is going well in Morgantown.
