suddenly seven

In the blink of an eye, my baby is seven. How did that happen??

lolais7!!

The good news is that she is an amazing child. She is sweet and smart and silly and curious. She is a math whiz, can whistle any tune you like, and thinks swiffering the floor is about the most fun thing ever.

Oh, and her front tooth is refusing to fall out even though the new tooth is coming in right behind it!

NayNay and Grandaddy were in Savannah for Lola’s birthday weekend, and the weather could not have been more beautiful. Saturday we took the dogs to Fort Pulaski and ate lunch at The Crab Shack before heading downtown for the Christmas parade.

Sunday brought birthday donuts at Krispy Kreme before church, where Lola’s choir sang.

For her birthday cupcakes at school on Monday, Lola Gray wanted to make sure her friend Ismael, who has bad allergies, could eat the same treat as everyone else. I thought my heart would burst with pride that she was thinking of her friend first. That’s one special little girl, and I am just so glad she is mine.
