I don't have time for a big list, but today is my niece L's 13th birthday! I'm so thankful for her. :) :)
L was my very first nephiece. For the first half of her life, she and I lived in the same city (sometimes in the same house!) and I got to spend lots of quality time with her and her younger sister, K. I have a lot of happy memories of watching them grow, and they (along with my other nephieces) are one of my favorite gifts I've received in this life! Being an aunt is a huge blessing. And if I keep talking about this, I'm just going to start bawling. :P
Since she was born before I got a digital camera, I don't have any baby photos handy, but above are some photos over the years. She's the girl of many hairstyles!
I can't do a birthday post for every nephiece on every birthday, but 13's kind of a big deal. Maybe I can start that tradition, at least.
Happy birthday, L. :) :) I can't believe you're now a teenager and taller than me. I can't wait to see you next week (she's coming to visit me!!).
UPDATE: R sent me some baby photos of L!
