I now interrupt this Summer Update series to bring you a very important message.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HARPER LYNN!
Our self-proclaimed princess* turns three today (even though I lied about her birthday yesterday so that I could leave her at Pepe's Playhouse while I went Krogering. Stop judging me on my daughter's birthday.)
*I have a strange aversion to the word princess but God likes to see me uncomfortable so He gave me a daughter who entered the world proclaiming royalty.
Harper, you are pure spunk mixed with a healthy dose of sass sprinkled generously with feisty-ness all wrapped in the most precious package of love. Each night you give me a hug, a big squeeze, and a kiss on the lips (in that order) and it continues to be the highlight of my day. I love you when you jump in my arms the minute I walk in the door just as much as I love you when you are throwing a tantrum, body flailing on the floor. Your highs and lows humble me and remind me that we both need Jesus. Speaking of Jesus, I love that your favorite story in the world is the story of baby Jesus. There aren't words to describe the joy I feel when I open a book (any book) and you scurry through the pages looking for a baby-in-a-manger.
Harper Lynn, I love you. You make me so happy. Kiss. Kiss. Kiss.
