roll that around in your head…
but here we are… she is so excited about 5!
I think it’s funny that she still calls this skirt her “birthday skirt”, still loves to wear it, and was the first thing she thought about wearing today.
there have been a lot of changes, like the obvious things: height, hair, shoe size… talking and the like.
then there are the things that haven’t changed: still sucks on those fingers (trying to break her of that..), she still loves to snuggle, she is the best sleeper of the bunch, the best eater too..
I pray every day to make the most of each with her. I have never had just me + one little girl at this age, there was always another sidekick floating around. I hope to make every moment a special one for her. I have enjoyed her so much!
this morning, she opened a few of her gifts. the girl loves the lion king, make-up, and candy, so we chose just a few gifts for her to open first thing, saving a couple more for later. she opened lion king 2 and got so excited.
“mom! remember when I watched this a long time ago when I was 4?”
“I remember like it was yesterday…”
and that is how it goes.
she may be five, but she is still my baby..
