Lili will be six in just a few days. A friend suggested that I do six days of Lili. Six posts about her and her life so far. I just realized that I should have started on Friday, but I will catch up today and finish out the remaining four days like it should be.
To my daughter Liliann---
On the day you were born, I had no idea what type of little girl you would be. When mommy was little, I was a tomboy, I loved to fish and play outside. I loved to get dirty and play with my brothers. So I never imagined that one day you would grow into such a beautiful, fashion diva! One who loves to get her nails and hair done at the salon, wants to put on make up and loves to be in high heels. At first, I was scared. I have no clue when it comes to girly stuff like that. But now, as I see you turning six, I could not ask for a better daughter.
You look so beautiful every day, whether you are wearing jeans or a dress. I love to sit and watch as you get your hair done at the salon. When we went there for your birthday party, there was a wedding party getting their hair done. And the flower girl was just your age. They struggled with her because she didn't like getting her hair done. She kept moving and wiggling. I looked over to you and you were sitting in a perfect pose, chatting up the girl as she did your hair. You looked over and waved, but never broke the stance she asked you to sit in. As you walked to get your nails done, you looked so much older, but so young at the same time. You were stunning. As she did your nails, you didn't flinch. You sat perfectly still and loved every minute of it. The beauty salon girls just loved it!
But as we went out to the park for your birthday I noticed you didn't let the beauty of the day stop you. You rolled down the hill, you played on the slides and you had lots of fun with all the kids that were there. Looking beautiful every step of the way. On this day, I want to celebrate the diva in you. The one who wears high heels, who wants to be crowned Miss America and who no matter what, would choose to get her nails done over going to a movie any day! I hope you never change your beautiful ways. I hope you always love to get pretty and look your best, but still know how to have fun at the end of the day.
