Happy Birthday Paij!






Paij turned 11 on Monday the 16th. Where has the time gone? I still remember her entrance into the world, such a unique delivery! She has been such a joy in our family. She is such a great helper with the little ones, and is a fun person to be around and to talk to. She is one of my best friends! She is cheerful and very smiley! She is very grown-up for her age, and seems to have her head on straight, and wants to be obedient! I can always count on her to get up on time, by herself, get her chores done and be ready on time, everyday! She has gotten very good at doing her hair by herself and always looks darling! She has started getting quite fashionable and is loving cute clothes. This is the best part about having daughters, they love to go shopping. She is all about a bargain, I guess she learned something from watching me. Just before her b-day, she got to have her annual spend the night with Grandie and Papa. They went to Sweet Tomatoes and went shopping at Kohls, picked out some adorable shirts, on clearance, and rented the movie Bride Wars, and picked out her cereal, Cookie Crisp, yum! I absolutely LOVE that my parents do this, the kids look SO forward to it! We love our sweet Paij and hope that she knows that she is so special to us, that we only want what is best for her. We will always be there for her, ALWAYS, and that her Heavenly Father loves her too! I hope you had a great birthday Paij!

So special a daughter and a friend. I remember the days when Paij was shy and afraid of me and boy am I ever glad she grew out of that stage! Smile. Hope your year is filled with fashion, Paij

Wow, it's hard to believe Paij is 11 now! She is definitely grown up for her age though...and in such a great way! I love seeing the pictures of her when she was younger. All her pics are beautiful! Your tribute to Paij is so heartfelt! What a neat tradition that your parents do with their grandkids for their birthdays! What an incredible idea!!! Happy Birthday + 3, Paij!
P.S. Lindsey, I just love your new family photo at the top of your blog!

Hi Lindsey, I came across your blog from the Duxbury's blog and thought I would pop in to say hello. I guess our husbands know eachother well, but I don't get out much with the new baby (you know how it goes). I saw you at the ward Christmas breakfast, but had my hands too full of baby and chasing my three-year old to stop and introduce myself. I look forward to getting to know you better in the ward and maybe do a little blogging, too! Come and visit our family's little blog anytime.
