Happy Birthday Lola Moon!!
Nine years ago she was born into a tub of water at Best Start Birthing Center's calm place of midwifery- I wrote all about it here. The first thing I noticed were her long and delicate fingers, like my sister Luras, not farm hands, square like mine. She was chubby and long and healthy as a horse. In the last nine years she has been an absolute delight. Her spirit is tender and always seeking beauty, humorous without edge, she is captivated with magic and joy and creation. Her mind dwells on fashion designs, musicals ( we just watched Singing In The Rain and she loved it ) , dancing, singing ( but not Justin Bieber..I teasingly sang 'baby baby baby oooo' to her at her birthday dinner and she announced I was totally ruining the party ) creating clubs ( she created Friendship Finders, a school club where her and girlfriends seek out lonely kids on the playground and talk to them. PROUD. ) creating art and her family. I tell her I love her a billion times a day and she says it back. It is usually the first thing we say to each other in the morning and the last before sleep. Her favorite show is Happy Days, her favorite color is orange, she loves Taylor Swift's music, swimming and taking photos. She sneeze farts. She wrinkles her nose when she laughs. She is sending the $25 she got from her grandparents for her birthday to Kate Mcrae. She is my heart's joy and more than I ever could have imagined in a daughter. We love her more than a big zambonie.
On Sunday we made Valentine cards for her class while listening to the blues.
