LillyBob Birthday Bash, Pt. Deux

Ode To Lilly
(By her mother, Aleisha)

My little girl has big, brown eyes
and a beautiful, goofy grin.
Spend one afternoon with her
and your heart she will surely win.

She has a silly laugh.
She has an adorable nose.
She wants golden hair like Rapunzel.
She prances through the house on her toes.

Dora the Explorer is pretty nice,
all the Disney princesses are swell.
But if you ask her what she'd like to watch,
“SpongeBob SquarePants” is what she'll yell!

You won't catch her eating green beans,
she'll refuse a tomato too.
Want to know her favorite food?
Tacos! They make her swoon.

She adores her grandmas and grandpas,
she thinks rowdy boys are weird.
She enjoys playing in the bathtub,
she makes the coolest bubble beard!

She's a very good big sister
to baby brother, Cam.
She makes us laugh with her funny antics,
she really is quite the ham.

She enjoys visiting the playground,
and Squinkies are her favorite toy.
She is like blue skies and sunshine to us,
and she brings our family joy.
I'm blessed to have her in my life,
Without her, what would I do?!
And so, today,
I'll stop and say,
Lilly Mae, I LOVE YOU!
