Della is a special girl. Kind and empathetic. Teases her brother only a little bit. Thoughtful. Never silly.

She took her time learning to ski, just like when she learned to walk, but now that she’s ready, she makes lots of good turns and never falls down. Caution is underrated.

She has long hair, which was a longtime goal. She is funny because she talks about looking forward to the day it turns brown. I showed up at daycare one day and said, “There’s my two little blondies!” Della gave me a dirty look, and Miss Maisie said, ‘She prefers ‘light brown.'”

This is a game you play at the birthday after-party where you hide in the bathroom closet and laugh when someone comes in to use the facilities.

Love you, Della.

It doesn’t make me sad to see you grow. It makes me happy. I like you more every day.
