Ten years ago...

C tucked Averson in last night and told her that it was his last time saying good night to a nine year old, and suddenly I got very nostalgic for my squishy little baby. She's so excited to be 10 and is just the most fun, cookiest little creature. We're currently going WAY overboard on a Harry Potter themed slumber party and when I asked what I should tell people that she wants for her birthday she listed Harry Potter, Nightmare Before Christmas, Vintage, and Dragons. She makes the best morning play lists, continues to be fiercely independent, and claims to be dark and edgy while actually being one of the sweetest, kindest people I know. 

In no discernible order, a birthday retrospective. I love that she's picked the same birthday donut for three years running



  1. Happy birthday!! DOUBLE DIGITS?!?! I love that she still looks like her baby self.

  2. Happy Birthday to your littlest! LOL, love the contrast between her edgy persona and her sweet self <3

  3. I've been lurking for years, followed a link from another blog, and I've really enjoyed following your work and family saga! As a pediatrician (and mom of teens) I feel drawn to comment today. Your baby is still so cute! If the spots on her face are acne (and not something temporary related to a virus, etc.) I really advise talking with her ped (or a dermatologist) about treating it. Even if she says it doesn't bother her. The effects on self-esteem can be huge. I really don't mean to offend, though, so if you want to delete this comment I'm totally cool with that. But acne options have come a long way from when we were kids!
