Yep…today we celebrated…we celebrated life, we celebrated 9 years of life! 9 years ago today, we went through one of the hardest things ever…we lost a child…for a minute. Then she was back again…thanks to a string of miracles! But we didn’t know how much she would recover from her brain injury…or even if she had a brain injury.

So today we celebrated the wildness that is Lillian!

(To see just how normal she is, here is her video from this morning: Click HERE!)

So, when I was little, when my momma would put me to bed, we’d pray together and we’d tell each other our Do-Todays. Those were the things we did that day…so in honor of mom, we are going to go through Lil’s Do-Todays!! mainly through pictures…we had quite the day…I’m wiped…she’s doing pretty well (sound asleep!!! LOL!!)

She got all dressed for the day…she knew exactly what she wanted to wear…her birthday dress from last year! Love it! She did a little math (wasn’t really focused, so I gave her the rest of school off!), watched a little Phineas and Ferb, then got ready to go…

I beat her at tic-tac-toe twice and the cat got the third one…I just had to add that in there, since it doesn’t happen very often!

Lil’s brother getting eaten by a giant mouth! Love the Health Museum…

From here we went to Target and bought a gob of stuff, then to drop Emma off at the gym, then to pick up a cookie cake, then to pick up daddy, then to Lil’s fave restaurant…

photobucket is down, so no McD pics, but you can check out my FB (right sidebar link) and see her in the drive thru…so adorable!

Then we went to her rehearsal…she’s in Princess and the Pea…

and they sang Happy Birthday to her…and we ate cake…

P3029146

(the birthday kinda got smooshed…)

P3029147

She rehearsed, we went by a friend’s house and got some presents (thanks, Morgan!!), went by Opa’s and gave him a birthday hug (and scammed two thin mints, but we’re not telling!!!) and then went home!!!

Lil got to open her BIG present from momma and daddy at home immediately!!

 recently she’s been borrowing Emma’s Razor scooter to ride around!

P3029160
She got her own!!! She was very very happy…

then Lil rode her scooter insde for a couple of short trips (with the helmet of course!), went upstairs, played with her Target Rapunzel (Tangled) toys and then went to bed!

What a day…

I’m exhausted…

even more now that I typed all that!! LOL!!

But I’m still celebrating…celebrating 9 years…and we will be celebrating a lot more with her! Thanks to God and his miracles…*sigh*
