Today, is Hannahs turn! You may notice the title of this post is ‘Meet HB’ though and not ‘Meet Hannah’. That’s because her nickname, which is Hannah-Bee, slowly deteriorated into only an abbreviation over the years. And we almost always just call her HB now.
Let me tell you how it all started, when Hannah was 3, she picked out a bumble bee costume for Halloween. (She was the cutest little bee. Seriously, just scroll down.) Anyway, she insisted on wearing her bee costume for a week before halloween and then for many days after!
We called her Hannah-the-bee for at least 2 weeks straight…and it eventually just became Hannah-Bee. As she grew, we (well, I) shortened it to HB, because it’s so much easier to say fast.
It still makes me smile to think about our tiny little girl (who is now almost 16). Every time I say her name, I still see her like this…
HB has grown into a totally awesome person. I’m so proud of her. She’s strong, and independent, and not afraid to think for herself, which is totally rad! She’s a good friend and a great sister (but, let’s be real, sisters will be sisters, and we have our fair share of drama). She’s curious about everything and wants to know the hows and whys. She has been driving a car since she was 8! She loves nature, and animals, and life. She’s going to own a business someday. She photographs the sunset almost every evening! She loves chocolate chip cookies, broccoli cheese soup, and steak. She’s an incredible artist. She’s funny, and boisterous, and she laughs at my jokes, which makes my heart happy.
Totally. A. Cool. Kid.
