Lydia turns six today.

(We celebrated with Big Guy and Nonna on Friday. I promise there are six candles: one is just behind the other from this angle. Also, those are Frozen stick-on earrings. We aren't there . . . yet.)

Happy Birthday, Lydia! Your sixth year has been full of newness: you learned to swim; you learned to ride a bicycle; you started kindergarten. You are always creating for the people you love, and I love the beauty you bring to our home - both in your creations and in the person you are. I love you, Lydia Kate! We are excited to celebrate you today!!!
