This is the time of year I put together a photo book to share with the grandparents that shows off the last year of the girls' lives (sorry to publicly spoil the Christmas gift surprise, but I think after 4 years in a row you probably could guess that it's coming). I was looking through last year's book to try to mimic the format as much as possible, and I was just blown away at how much older Romelie seems. True, she still acts like she did when she was 3 occasionally, but she also has given us glimpses of what she might be like at age 7 or 8 (wanting to help more around the house, using polite words - sometimes - without needing reminders, etc.) and it's pretty awesome.
Anyway, Romelie...this video is for you.
(Happy birthday, baby. Love you.)
