Right before my eyes I am watching the transformation of a little girl into a woman. Mostly woman now. It is hard to wrap my mind around our children getting older. We spend our days together everyday, but somehow they are slowly emerging out of their childhood shells into adults. I still see them as someone I should/might/maybe would carry around in the ERGO so why are you wearing those clothes and thinking such deep thoughts?
Lillie has probably grown the most this past year. We wear the same shoe size and she is almost as tall as me. How? Why? Where? She really is the best older sister to her siblings. She loves Lourdes so much that she gets tears in her eyes when speaking about her. She is full of love and excitement.
Lillie's best trait is loyalty and compassion. She can spot someone struggling from a mile away and is so eager to intercept and help out. She has such a beautiful heart. Out of all of our children, Lillie loves animals the most. She is a natural with them. I have noticed a simple consistency with people that those who love animals seem to be so aware of others and their needs. Interesting.
