Perfect First Child
Since I am about to have another baby soon and I know that it will be hard on Lily for a while, I just wanted to take a minute and let her know how much we will always love her. Sadly enough, the first and oldest child is usually the one who has to help out the most like babysitting the younger siblings or running all the errands as soon as they turn 16, which is why Jacob and I have decided that we have the perfect first child. I just can't believe how lucky we are to have her. She is the BIGGEST helper. I have been cleaning so much lately and she has been right there by my side the whole time helping me. Jacob and I get scolded by her if we track mud in the house. (above picture) Many times I will come back to clean up the muddy mess by the door but it is already done. She is also very good at cleaning up after herself. She now loads her own dishes in the dishwasher w/o being asked. We never even taught her that, she just started doing it. She loves babies and takes such good care or her baby doll. She is always telling me that her baby needs a vitamin. She is a little sweetheart. She always comes and gives me a hug or kiss for no reason. Last Sunday I was a substitute in her nursury class and I found that she is quite the teachers pet. The whole time she was right there helping the teachers with EVERYTHING such as passing things out to the other kids or just cleaning things up. She is very concearned about others in the class when they are sad. She is such a good example to me in so many ways and I know she will be for our other children as well.
She also is very good at brushing her teeth twice a day.
Just a silly picture
Her new favorite game. She is guarding that tower so I can't push it over but as you can see she is sleeping on the job. I usually never win because she is a very light sleeper.
This is how you will find her pretty much every day. In her pj's with some sort of stuffed animal and about 10 bracelets on her arm (she will try and convince you that there are only two because that is her favorite number). Lily we love you so much and are so grateful that our Heavenly Father has sent you to us.
