Let’s Celebrate! Coupon code for 45% off all patterns.

Lily is my first, my flower, my eldest. She is “Big Sister” and the ‘guinea pig’ to our parenting, to our rearing and in general from every rule that is made to every veggie put on the table. She has blossomed, by God’s grace, in and through and in spite of our parenting.

She turns twenty today. And I love her still squishy hands, her juicy youthfulness and observing her as she surveys her future, still laid out in from of her like a freshly printed map.

Happy Birthday Sweetness!! And thank you for being my model on this Mad journey of ours. Here are just a couple of my favorites from Madlandia…

In celebration I’m offering a 45% off coupon in my Ravelry shop. Use code AllGrownUp at checkout. Enjoy!¬†

Now how did this one slip in there?! Just kidding. I had to share her as Big Sister to The Boy. Oh the patience she has learned with him!

And of course here she is modeling the wrap for me, and me torturing her to get her to smile.

And here is her first modeling job for me. This is when I really fell in love with her hands all over again. See the way she is clutching that French horn? She was so infatuated¬†with that instrument, this was her season of falling in love with music. What a blessing this being is to my mommy’s heart!!

      Thank you Maria! She has a really tough week at school but we are making her childhood favorite meal (mac and cheese) with lots of extra cheese. Lol, some things never change I guess.
