say it ain't so. 10.

okay...I felt confident I'd get through this post without getting too emotional before looking through photos to upload. And now I'm holding back tears crying:'(

am I crying because she's TEN? Or because TEN years has gone by? One in the same, I suppose.
TEN years ago...she was just this chubby little baby. I was also chubby...but not because someone had just birthed me...mostly due to the abundance of alcohol my 19 year old waste of space ass was consuming;)

anyhoo...this fine young lady. Man. She is great. So thoughtful and kind...when she's not being a typical kid;) I am so proud to be her Godmother and Aunt:)

i hope Courts doesn't mind me sharing an email that she received regarding Lia back in 2010 and then shared with us. Lia was only 8 years old:)

Courtney and David,

I just wanted to let you know what a sweet and caring little girl you have. Yesterday she handed me a card and told me that I couldn't open it until I got home. When I did I saw that it was a card wishing us to have a happy and healthy baby. It was so sweet of her to do this for us. Those small little things are so greatly appreciated. I shared it with MAN and DAUGHTER as well and they were both honored that she would think of us. She is just so thoughtful. As I was filling out her progress report this week I could only think that I hope DAUGHTER grows up to be just like her. Great job raising a sweet little girl.

*names were changed to protect the innocent;)

 as she's gotten older...we get less and less typical smiles;)

 lia and I the morning of my wedding. Good memories:)

this face is completely inaccurate. The girl fears nothing 'ew'.

 she's Homer's Godmother and that makes me incredibly happy:)

lia and I on her Birthday:)

i know Courts' kids aren't myyyy kids. But I sure have an insane amount of love for them. I'll always feel like Lia was my first daughter. I hope to be so lucky to have a baby girl as sweet as her someday:)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Lia Bear!!!!!!!
