Happiness is...












Happiness is many things, but today it is Wyndham turning 7! This is the first time in her life that she has been healthy and avoided hospital stays from Thanksgiving through her birthday. It is so neat for us to see that she is growing and building muscle strength and her immune system gets stronger with each passing year.
Today it is hard to believe that she is 7...but she is loving the attention and spotlight on her from all her siblings. I grabbed the camera just a bit ago when the others were off playing and she was having some mellow time in her own room. She seems to know when she's had enough of all the others' antics and games at times and she likes her quiet time.
I let her just play in her room and I would hand her items or give her "prompts". You see her 'calling Grandma', painting her nails and doing her lips {gearing up to be a teen already!}, she was writing a "w"- {it's her favorite letter} and then she was being silly for me. In the last picture here she is making a wish and pretending to blow out candles on her 'w'.
Happiness for all of us was licking the beaters after making Wyndham's cupcakes. I think that's the best part of happiness- sharing it with others.
Happy Birthday, Wyndham Abby. We're so proud of you and love the way you shine your true self to everyone around you. May you have lots more days like this- full of simple happiness.
