I love that she does not have too much pride to stand up on a chair in a very crowded restaurant with a balloon animal in her hand while shaking her adorable booty just like she did when she was three.
In Judaism, the number "18" symbolizes life which is why Jewish people tend to give monetary gifts and donations in sums of 18. Celebrating life is one of the most important tenants of Judaism which is why the phrase "L'chaim, To Life" is often said in celebration. Life is a precious gift that should never be taken for granted. It should be celebrated and exalted. Happy, happy 18th birthday, my sweet angel baby. We are all so incredibly proud of you.
