Lilleigh is 6!

Happy (late) birthday! You are 6 years old and such a light.
You are such a gem of a big sister. You are constantly helping with Adeline and with baby James. Your siblings adore you. And you are definitely a little momma.
You and Adeline play so well together - most of the time. It blesses me to watch you two pretend together. Tonight in the bathtub you were talking to Adeline in a British accent pretending to be the Queen of Narnia. You make me laugh.

You're getting more interactive, and not just with us! You like talking to your animals on the play mat and yourself in the mirror on the mat! You'll bat at toys on there and grab at them.
The drooling and bringing your hands to your mouth has started! Thankfully now they have these cute bandana bibs you can wear, so you're a stylish drool machine.
