A few days ago, we have the pleasure of celebrating Lydia Lu’s 10th birthday. This girl knows how to party! Due to scheduling conflicts, instead of celebrating on her actual birthday we delayed it a day or two.
The day of celebration began with a free summer movie at the theater, an afternoon full of water guns and water fights and ended with fried chicken, cake and ice cream.
Lydia is a treasure. She is always smiling and laughing. Want to chat? Lydia is your gal. She never meets a stranger and no matter where she goes she has a friend. I love her bubbly personality. Big sister? Oh, yeah. She loves to read to the younger ones and happily rocks the baby whenever needed.
With some coloring pencils and sketchpad, Lydia is content. Drawing after drawing…I love to see what she comes up with. And I can’t wait for the day I see her driving around in her orange VW bug.
Every time I hear her giggle (and her laugh is a true giggle and it is contagious!), I am so thankful that the Lord spared her life. An placental abruption sent us rushing to the OR like a scene from a medical TV drama. I will forever be grateful for the Lord granted Dr. M the wisdom and skill for an emergency c-section. Love my Lydia Lu.
