Handwritten

I am sooooo proud of Lily. Today, for the first time, she wrote her own name! This is a huge accomplishment. She was making Valentine's cards for her friends (later we made the caterpillar pictured). I told her she needed to write her name on them so that they would know who they came from. I wrote her name out on a piece of paper and told her to copy it. She did it! She protested at first, "Mommy, you do it! I can't write my name! I can't do it!" I encouraged her to try and she did it the very first time that she tried. I am so proud of her! I love watching my children hit milestones. I feel so blessed when I'm the first person to see them do new things and to see the excitment and sense of satisfaction on their faces when they accomplish something new. I am such a proud mommy today!
