Birthday Breakfast Destination
After breakfast, we headed home. We decided to watch the video Peter made of her from birth to age 14 months. It was really fun and sometimes funny. She was thrilled to see Max and Abby again as babies. There was even footage of the grandparents and great-grandparents, including Peter grandparents who have passed away. She was really happy to see Uncle Brian enjoying her the day she was born and all dressed up with Aunt Susan for her first birthday. They came as a lion and a mouse. Anyway, it was fun to see people we miss because they have gone home or live far away. It was also fun to see our house and ourselves six years ago.
I really can't believe she is six. When I watched the video, it seems like such a short time ago. I am really glad that today was filled with crepes and movies, rather than giving birth. Lillian is such a treasure to me and it is really hard to remember life without her. She is definitely a light in our house. So, Happy, Happy Birthday sweet Lillian. I'm kind of glad you were sick, today.
