Ten of my favorite things about Willoweve

In honor of her birthday here is my list of ten or so of Jason and I’s favorite things about Willoweve…

This is of course not an exhaustive list.  There are so very many things to love about Willoweve also this list is in no particular order.

1) Her imagination – Willoweve puts my imagination to shame and that takes some work.  :)

2) The child is beyond lovely.  I love her curls and her bright blue eyes. I know every parent thinks there child is beautiful but she really is.  Take a look:

3) She loves pink – I swear before Willoweve was born I could count the pink things in our house on one hand – now – uhm – well… yeah I don’t think I could count them.

4) Willoweve is resilient and determined.  She doesn’t quit and she doesn’t let setbacks stop her.

5) She loves Horses – no elaboration needed.

6) She isn’t a morning person – like her daddy – she would rather stay up late at night then get up early in the morning.  Most days I have to wake her up – which I get to do by going into her room and snuggling her awake.

7) She says the most amazing things.  For example the other day we are in the car and she brought like five stuffed cats with her.  When I laughingly ask her about them she says, in a matter of fact voice and with a casual shrug. “I just feel comfortable around kitty’s.”  Uhm…. ok… I was laughing to hard to really reply to this.

8) She loves her friends and she wants to make them happy.  She would go out of her way to make her friends happy.

8.5) She is a princess.  She wants to act like a princess and dress like a princess… she does a pretty good job of it most of the time too.  Like when I hear her ordering her brothers about when they are “helping” her clean her room.  To solve that problem we had to ban her brothers from helping her… they weren’t to devastated.

9) She’s just a little shy of people she doesn’t know.  She gets over it pretty quick though – especially if she has something to talk to them about. And she really does love to talk – amazing for a little girl who did two and a half years of speech therapy.

9.5) She gives great hugs.

10) Willoweve is caring, companionate and smart.   She loves to play with others and also craves her own personal space and distance from others.  She is a great deal like Jason and at the same time so very much like me.  In many ways of our three children I would say she is the one who blends the two of us the most.  Willoweve is going to grow up to be an amazing, strong, and loving woman who will touch the world and change it for the better.

To summarize Willoweve is a wonderful person.

Happy Birthday Willoweve – Daddy and I love you so much and we are honored to be your parents.
