My little Becca Boo turned 15 this month! How in the world did that happen?
To this! (She’s gonna love me for posting that!)
We were starting a month of extra healthy eating as of August 1st, so we had her real birthday cake request a week early. Chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake! Yum!
On her actual birthday I made her a delicious custard sweetened with honey. She was a really good sport about it.
The only thing that makes it OK for her to grow up so fast, is the fact that she’s doing it so well. I couldn’t be happier with the person Rebecca is turning out to be.
She is so responsible. I don’t worry at all about her getting her homework done on time, or doing her best at the jobs she commits to. She keeps her word and prepares for her future.
She loves my babies. I love watching her enjoy her little brothers. They can tell that she loves them, and are so excited to see her when she comes home. She will be a great mother.
She is forgiving. In her teenage world, feelings can get hurt easily, and she has had her share of hurt feelings. But when someone is unkind, she really tries to give them the benefit of the doubt. She forgives them and does a great job of letting it go.
She’s learning to navigate well the ups and downs of being a girl. She is really good at realizing when she is the one “feeling cranky” and takes responsibility for her actions. Moodiness happens to the best of us, and she is learning early to manage it well.
She is fun. I love to listen to Rebecca and Savannah giggling in their room. (When they should be sleeping!) I have countless
silly absurd videos on my camera. Someday I will treasure those, right?
She is beautiful. I worry a little about all those poor boys that are starting to hover around her. Her dad is just a little bit overprotective!
She is a good communicator. I love that she shares stories and details with me about what goes on in her life. She opens up easily and isn’t afraid to talk about how she feels.
So…. Happy Birthday Rebecca! I’m so glad you were born!
