Today is my niece's ninth birthday! I'm sad that I can't be celebrating with her at the American Girl store in NYC, since I'm at training in Elgin. I'm so jelly that she got her birthday party there; I'm sure that she is having a blast!
As you can probably tell from these pictures, Lily has the fashion gene in her as well. Plus, she can walk in my heels (which are about 4 sizes too large for her) just as well as I can.
I still remember the day that she was born; I was in fifth grade and I was so excited! Every free second that I had I would rush back to the computer in my classroom and check the hospital's website to see if they posted her picture yet.
So, have a great ninth birthday Lily girl! I love you so much; I can't wait to see you continue growing from an awesome girl to an amazing teenager and beyond!
