EIGHT! An extra big deal. We do friend birthday parties every four years, hers is Friday. A major milestone, she can choose to be baptised, and has. It is a beautiful commitment and tradition to be a better human. It inspires goodness and desire to improve one's self and the world, and offers a reason to strive to do so. It is beautiful to have traditions and to be a part of a community and a bigger cause. It is extending one's family. Adaiah already naturally embodies goodness and sweetness of spirit. My dad wrote in her birthday card, "this card reminds me of how beautiful and bright you are. It is the happiness that is in you, the love of life that you show." He nailed it, warmed my heart so much. I share so much on here because I see my family nearly never. I appreciate FB for staying in touch with loved ones and I'm so glad between our rare visits, mail exchanged, and phone calls that he's felt her unique spirit. I love you Adaiah. You make me smile every single day, regardless of how old and worn and whiney I feel.

I suggested it would be super weird for clothing to be in my body.
Bonus, when I told Adaiah what Denver had asked, she awwed. She's so darling to recognize the sweetness in her siblings.

I was nagged about my lack of blogging today and rightfully so! So here's a big part of my life, two naps plus bedtime (usually handled by Brian) everyday. Everly wants her naps, complete with waves and straight jacket. We had to work to transition her to a crib to make our lives easier and, I admit with some bittersweetness, she sleeps better and clearly prefers it. She often hollers for a minute, or flirts like she is now. She's like a little larvae, wiggling all over. She's so fun that I resent naptime interruptions, but alas, I'll regret it if I fail to appease.
