We celebrated at Boompa & Jean Marie's house (don't ask) with a cake, presents, and her adoring public.
It's kind of crazy to think about the decade that has gone by. She's been my constant companion, and I'm so thankful to have had her there through so many life experiences.
I'd like to think she's prepared me for being a mother. With all the cleaning up of barf and everything else. And attitude. Some friends say that I'd better not raise my child the way I raised LaiLu, because children can talk back. And if she could speak I'm pretty sure I would have been told off many times throughout her life.
But that's one of the reasons I picked her out of her brothers and sisters, her 'spunky' personality. And luckily along with that came a sweet disposition and a loving pit bull heart. And I know she loves me. Even if she'd prefer to hang out with my dad when he's eating chips.
I love you LaiLu!
