Today is the first day of the Chinese new year. Xīn Nián Kuài Lè! According to Lilah, it's "Happy Chinese New Year"! That's what she calls it and I love that! I overheard her chatting with her imaginary friends this morning: "It's happy Chinese new year today. Oh, is it happy Chinese new year? I like happy Chinese new year! Me too, happy Chinese new year is so much fun!" And it went on and on and on. The photo challenge (with 'the joy of love') for today is 'then and now'. I wasn't planning on joining in today, because I had a lot on, but then I realized I already had pictures taken that I could use! As I mentioned before, it's the first day of the (Chinese) New Year and this is our third year celebrating with Lilah. There's something very special and nostalgic about looking through past years pictures. Sigh. Here's our beautiful girl celebrating the new year at 1, 2 and 3 years old!
