How is it that this cute little thing...
...is now 15 years old?
Here's some stuff you might not know about TCD...
She didn't have any hair until she was about 9 months old, and when it came in, it was RED!
She's been a Daddy's girl since the day we brought her home.
I refused to dress her in pink, ruffly, fluffy things...which is funny if you think about what she's drawn to now.
She has ALWAYS had a thing for shoes!
I love that she is driven and focused in school, but hilariously funny and goofy at home.
I love that she spends her free time working on Personal Progress and challenging her friends to read the Book of Mormon.
I love that out of the past 15 years of her life, her favorite one was this past one.
I love that she has a magnetic personality. People just want to be around her.
I love that her lightning fast wit keeps me constantly laughing.
I love that she jumps into everything head first...100%...without looking back.
I love that she genuinely cares about other people.
I love that she strives to always do better.
I love that she is confident and a leader. There's a reason we call her "The Cruise Director."
I love that she still listens to her parents even though she knows a lot of stuff.
I love that she's adventurous and outgoing.
I love that she forgets herself and does quietly nice things for other people.
I love that she is bold and convicted about her standards.
I love that she has common sense like no one I have ever met.
I love that she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.
This morning she wanted cupcakes for Seminary...for BOTH Freshman classes because her cute friend, Cameron, is in the other class.
It's Cam's birthday today, too. In fact, not only were they both born on September 26, 1996...they were born at the same time (almost). Cameron was born at 5:25pm in Dallas (CST). TCD was born at 6:29pm in Atlanta (EST). Cool, huh?
