She Is Seven

picky purple pixie 9
Oh how long she has waited to finally be seven!! This birthday, by far, has taken the longest to get here, for her. LOL. We have a game we play as a family called "Whoonu" (it is a Cranium game!), and who-goes-first is decided by which birthday comes next. Since her last birthday, she has had to wait through Daddy's birthday, Pappy's birthday, Andrew's birthday, Gee's birthday, Jacob's birthday, and Momma's birthday before it was her turn to go first. You can see why it felt like it was taking forever.

I wanted to put together a list of things about Lauren at seven that I don't want to forget. I thought I would share them with you.

*Current nicknames are: Missy Do, Bugaboo, Miss Rotten, and LaurenAnnie
*She can read up a storm. There isn't a word she can't decode. Her favorite book today is One Fish Two Fish, by Dr. Suess.
*She is a professional dillydaddiler, she can make molasses look fast.
*Lauren loves to sing and every song she makes up uses the word love.
*She gives the biggest kisses on my cheeks and forehead. Almost too many, lol, Daddy could get jealous.
*She likes to sleep on the floor in my room when she is sick.
*Definitely a night owl, and not a morning person.
*Current Best Friends are: Ryan, Samantha, Sophia, and Bryanie
*She still lets me twirl her when she walks down aisles.
*She has been riding a two wheeler for years now, but still isn't confident about swimming.
*She loves Jacob more than anyone else in the house.
*My Dad likes to tell her she has a million dollar smile and a twenty-nine cent frown. That makes her smile.
*Lauren knows her mind and can be very very ornery, especially in the morning.
*She still insists she will be a bike maker and artist when she grows up. And when she is done with that, she will teach 1st grade.

Happy happy day Miss Lauren.
You are the spitting image of your momma (who is beautiful too). I love your new twirly sweater dress, that is one talented momma you have. Purple looks good on you. And that last picture? That is the cutest thing. You take the best pictures Kerry. I don't take nearly enough, if at all. Enjoy the day! Erin
P.S. When I was reading your things about her, it reminds me so much of my own daughter Olivia. I think they would get on famously!

Congratulations on seven, Lauren!!! Seize the day. :)

I love the pictures and the list made me smile and maybe get a little teary-eyed. I remember Anna Olivia at seven. Only five years ago, but...

Great pics, all of them but especially that last one. I always think we should wish the mom a happy birthday too when one of their kids have one. Happy Birthday to you too-- it sure was a happy day!

Happy Birthday, Lauren!!! I love the list of special things... and all of the pictures, especially the last. She sounds like my Chandler who is patiently waiting for his b-day which is at the end of August! He's already counting down...
