When a military child turns ten, they are required to have an id. They will carry this with them, ready to display it at all times, until they are twenty-three. Stacia has dreamed of having her own id. She's had an "imaginary id" since she was 3 1/2. She passed it up faithfully with all the other ids. She's practiced signing her name for four years.
She turned ten yesterday. Today, she signed for her military id - such serious business.
|"Sisters" necklace - which she got on her birthday|
She fit her WHOLE name Anastacia G in the little space.
Stacia is blossoming before our eyes....we look forward to seeing the woman of God she will become. She's grown a lot this year. She's learning to curb "princess chatterbox" when appropriate. ::wink:: She's a big help to us and her brothers.
I don't know when I started calling Arielle "Baby Girl," but Stacia truly is my baby girl...and our plan is to totally enjoy the next 8 - 10 years we have with her before she flies the nest.
Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!
BTW, I renewed my id today and was THRILLED to get rid of the terrible photo from Misawa which made me look like a bearded lady. LOL
