Lydia~ 8 months Julie~ 25 years.
Our home would be boring without Lydia!! Not a day goes by that she doesn’t create something! Yesterday she decided she wanted trees in her room, so she found sticks, taped green vegetation to the top and stuck them all over the walls of her room! She loves to draw, especially cats. They are the love of her life. She wants to be an illustrator when she grows up.
Lydia’s always been very good at finding a way around things. I began to notice this when she was two. She loved filling her plastic tea party dishes with water. Well, I got tired of having wet socks all the time, so I told her no more water. She asked for juice in a sippy cup, so I obliged. Next thing I knew, I caught her spitting juice into her tea cups!!! She is full of ingenuity.
Lydia was born with amazing self-esteem and stubborn independence!! Her sisters complain all the time about her bossing them around and enforcing her rules on them. She is always in charge and if you take away her power she gets upset! She’s much more of a leader than a follower.
Besides her cat infatuation and creative projects, listening to music and singing and dancing are her favorite things. As soon as she gets home from school she turns on music and cranks it up! I must have every word to every Lazy Town song memorized by now. She loves worship music, too, and even took the song “Here I am to Worship” a couple of weeks ago to show and tell and played it! It may have been the first time some of the kids in her class had ever heard a song about God.
I think she will be a great witness for God as she grows up. She loves being in Uncle Craig’s Super Church and always talks about the worship. She also loves being a Daisy in the Missionette program at church. I think she likes doing the craft projects the most.
Lydia is a super sweet, loving kid. I thank God for placing her in our famiy. I can’t imagine life without her. It would be a grey, dull place.
Our daughter, Lydia, will be like a pillar carved to adorn a palace. ~Psalm 144:12b
