Lilly is SIX! | Annual 50 Birthday Question Interview

August 27, 2019·

Our sweet Lilly girl is SIX years old! I know I’m a week late on this, but her annual birthday interview (which we started when she was three) – is one of our favorite traditions. It’s always so funny to see what answers change from year to year and which ones have stayed the same EVERY SINGLE TIME! you can read her previous interviews here: three years old, four years old, five years old.

Lilly starts Kindergarten this week and I’m all kinds of emotional. I’ve had a lot of moments where I just can’t believe she’s become such a little young lady and no longer a baby. She amazes me constantly! She learned how to ride her bike without training wheels, she learned how to tie her shoes, she’s learning how to swim… she’s just growing up SO fast and I know the time is only going to go faster.On World Malaria Day 2019, Let's Prevent Malaria in Tanzania Together

Lilly has such a huge heart and she’s so kind and generous. She got money for her birthday and after she tithed and saved a percentage of it, she wanted to take the rest to go to Target to buy a new toy. Well, while she was there, she not only bought herself a toy, but also WANTED to buy a toy for Amos and her friend Emma. She did it all on her own, with her own money. She just is such a sweet spirit. She’s really shy, but also has a huge personality once you get to know her.

We are so grateful for this baby girl and we couldn’t be more proud to be her parents!
