Happy 9th Birthday, Liliana!

Parenting Blog

She arrived on a warm August morning, as the sun was rising over Pittsburgh. What I remember most about that day was how still, how silent, how calm, and how beautiful that morning was. Not a sound was heard in labor and delivery, as she took her first breath. Her arrival was peaceful, as if she had always been with us. 

As of 7:24 this morning, Liliana is 9 years old! I truly can't believe 9 years have gone by since her birth day. Lily is a beautiful, smart, loving, funny, strong, and confident kid. She is so sweet and unique, and has the ability to capture the heart of everyone she meets. 

Lily had her heart set on a party with her friends at a skating rink, followed by a big family party this year, but hello, pandemic. She was so bummed, so Grant and I worked extra hard to give her a socially distanced birthday celebration that she will always remember. We can't wait to celebrate our beautiful girl when she wakes up later this morning! For now, here's a look at Lily's birth day, followed by each birthday she celebrated. She grew TOO fast!

Slow your grow, sweet Lily Bug. Slow your grow! I'll be back to share the details of her special birthday later this week, but you could also follow along with my stories on Instagram today! For now, Lily's presents are wrapped, I wrote her a birthday letter, the living room is decorated, her bedroom is filled with balloons, a new outfit is hanging on her dresser, donuts are waiting, and our plans are set for Lily's 9th birthday celebration! We can't wait!
