13? What do you think when you hear this number? Thirteen is a big number in our house this year because Legs is now officially 13. We have a teen in our house! What an adventure God has for us to experience.
I am in denial that Legs is this old and it does not help that she is practically as tall as I am. I still remember holding her for the first time, watching her sleep in the cradle, all the late night cuddles and feedings, watching her bond with her daddy, the first bath, the first step, and eventually becoming a great big sister.
The kids get to choose where to eat on their birthdays unless they are having a party on the same day. This year Legs did not want to miss church on Wednesday night so she chose to eat lunch at Olive Garden. That was not a big surprise, she loves Fettuccine Alfredo. She also got to open presents from us while there. She was surprised and elated that we gave her a "promise" ring and wears it proudly.
