It's official! I am now mom to a teenager. Egad! How did that happen? K turns 13 today, and it is incredible to reflect on how she has gone from being such a tiny and fragile baby to becoming a self-assured, capable young woman. What an amazing process parenting is and what a privilege it is to be a parent.
Happy birthday, K!! We are so proud of you and love you immensely.
M worked so hard to ensure that K had a really special day. She did extra chores, got and wrapped presents, and even helped A make a present for her sister. What an amazing kid!
The last photo is from one of my favorite moments of the day. A wanted to read, so she got some magazines, sat down in our reading corner and called to her daddy to come and read with her.
