Happy Birthday Lili


Lili is three years old today! Well kind of today....Lili was born on leap day. Everyone asks me "So when do you celebrate her birthday?" and I answer "On the 29th of February!" At the beginning of the year when I sit down with our calendar and transfer over all the birthdays and anniversaries I draw in the 29th on our February page. It's our special secret day together!
DP's mom always did so many special family traditions that we carry on in our family. One of which is Birthday Breakfast. Your chair is decorated with streamers and balloons and you wear your birthday hat and have cake for breakfast! I love building on family traditions and making special memories for my kids.
Three years ago today Mama R was giving birth at only 25 weeks pregnant. My strong, fiesty one-pound Lilibelle came into the world fighting. I love you so much baby girl! Thank you for sharing your life with me.

She's so cute! Happy Birthday!
That's so cool that she was born on Leap Day. And I love the birthday breakfast idea.

1 pound, huh? She looks so great for a 25-weeker. Niblet was 28 weeks and is remarkably healthy for that (she was 2.25lbs).
