|The sort of thing she does...a giraffe in Hunter boots in my living room....|
|On holiday with my DIL, she's on the left|
|She's in the middle|
Today is Girl Child's birthday, and I simply must give her a shout out on the blog today. She's 25 today...so this is a big birthday for her. Her name is actually Mikyla, but we only called her that for about 5 minutes. After that she was Ky (pronounced like My with a K). She's a pint sized package (4'11") but what she lacks in height she makes up for in feisty-ness and get up and go. She started dancing at 3 and went on to do so in competitions, but we never behaved like the dance moms/daughters you see on TV. She's been a dresser-up-er since day one, and paraded around the neighborhood in my heels, scarfs and jewelry from an early age. She's a live wire, this one, loves being in the thick of a gathering......people's her thing. This past year she has completed another 2 year diploma, traveled to the Bahamas, Montreal and Florida, was a bridesmaid in her brothers wedding, moved into new digs, FLOODED OUT OF HER NEW DIGS, interned at a fashion magazine, and spent loads of time with us and extended family. She has loved being a sister in law to Tracy (and the other 2 sisters) and is a loving Grand daughter.She'a always ready to help a friend in need. I've seen so many positives this year in the life of my girl and I am so proud of her. I love her excitable nature and ability to have good old fashioned fun. This girl truly loves a celebration and so enjoys the birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings etc of those she loves. While Champagne may seem like her middle name, she lives up to her real middle name which is Grace.
LOVE YOU GIRL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
