My sweet girl turned 9 years old last week. She had a day full of celebrations. She started her morning with a birthday party in her ID classroom. I outfitted her with a birthday crown, because it seemed appropriate. After lunch she had another birthday party with her 3rd grade class. I brought in cupcakes for all of the kids and they presented her with a lovely birthday card.
All of the kids signed the card and there were a few photos inside of Waverly with her classmates. It was one of the sweetest things she has ever received. A huge thank you to her 3rd grade teachers and her students for doing this for Wavey.
We ended the night at a favorite local diner, where Waverly had a birthday milkshake. We got her a little wind up toy that plays music and has some movement she loves it.
I anticipated an emotional day, but instead it was full of love and celebration. I am so thankful she has so many people who love her at school and wanted to celebrate her in such special ways.
Happy Birthday, Waverly!! I cannot believe you are 9 years old.
