Happy 4th Birthday Lillian!
Today our precious Lillian is 4 years old! It is hard to believe that it's been 4 years since she joined our family. The smallest of our children at birth, she has the biggest personality. Lillian is full of life, smiles and laughs. She loves her family and to be the center of attention. Being the only girl she definitely has a lot of girl flair, but having 4 brothers she is also rough and tumble. She is sensitive and tough. She really likes having Aunt Bec-bec fix her hair in braids, buns and pony-tails.
Lillian loves to memorize Scripture and even takes pride in knowing her verses. She enjoys reading "Excellent Wife" and women's books with her mama. She knows truth and enjoys giving the answer "Jesus" to all questions, whether it applies or not. She also enjoys asking lots of questions. I love her sense of curiosity most of the time.
It is fun to see Lillian wanting to do things like Jamey, but also beginning to learn what she enjoys and coming into her own. Recently she has learned that she enjoys playing dance games and Wii sports. Not only does she enjoy them, but she is really good at them. It is fun to see her excel in something!
Lillian is also a wonderful cheerleader. She encourages everyone no matter how good or bad they do. There are always plenty of high 5's to be given when she is playing with you.
She is already in practice to be a mother. It is a challenge teaching Lillian that she is the sister and not the mom, but I hope to teach her how to be a mom as I intercede.
Lillian is such a blessing and I pray that God will mold her into His child, penetrating her heart of stone and giving her a heart of flesh that seeks Him in all things and makes her like Jesus. I am so thankful that God has given Lillian to us for a little while to teach, train and guide. I look forward to seeing her grow and blossom into who God has created her to be.
