This is 9 (at our house)

Sweetie turned 9 this year, back in May, and I thought I would highlight her a bit. It was her arrival that started my at-home adventure, the idea behind this blog. And she has been making me laugh quite a bit lately, so I thought I would share some of her final year in a single-digit age.

We’ll see how much traction this idea has, how far it takes us. Sweetie continues to grow as a wonderful child. Nothing wrong with her sister, but Sweetie holds the focus in this post. She is an avid reader, enjoys building with Legos, loves her sister (then tolerates her, then fights with her, then loves her all over again), and might be the only kid I know who was sad that the school year was ending. Even this past year. As she moved through the 3rd grade, we witnessed a shift from the “little girl” to the girl, and that has brought some uniquely funny moments in our lives.

This series will focus on a photo of something that struck me, and just a bit of copy for context. I am feeling a quick, easy-to-post type project here. So here’s a picture of Sweetie in May, and this is 9 at our house.
