Nine years old
Our sweet girl is nine.
It’s hard to believe that this child, whose birth taught me that each child would be dramatically different, has now grown into her own person.
I got an idea last summer, when I first saw a few of these videos, that it would be really fun at each birthday to make a simple video of that child at that point in her life, doing something she enjoyed. This is the first birthday we have had since then. We had to hurry before we got 10 more inches of snow that evening!
It’s set to her current favorite song, and is excessively simple, because when I asked her what she loved doing most, she said, “Being outside around our house.” (Not much could have made me happier about this recent move.)
She’s a very gentle soul. Blessed am I to have her with me every day.
