five.

30 Mar

My lady turned five last week.  I am so happy she is ours.

We celebrated all day, and she thought it was perfect.

Thank you to my first lady for reteaching me about love everyday: for rearranging my priorities; and with each passing day making me more and more thankful for everyday we have spent together.

You are a girl of details.  Always asking questions and two steps ahead.  Your dad and I think you are going to project manage something huge one day since you are already project managing me and you are only five.

You are a girl of wild imagination.  Lately, I have not even needed to suggest games for you to play.  You have been inventing and acting out elaborate play such as the dinosaurs that need to come to the hospital so you and Sophie can fix their bones.

You are a girl of trustworthiness.  And, this is the one I am most proud of!  You are kind and protective.  I count on you to do the right thing because you have proven you will time and time again.  Eva is desperate and determined to be outside with you and Sophie now that spring is here in all its glory.  Many times I have come outside to find you helping her up the slide and making sure she does not come within ten yards of the swing.  The best part is it is just who you are.

You are so loved!  Happy Birthday!

    Hi! Ever since I saw this post last week, I’ve been thinking about that cookie sandwich. Is it just a homemade ice cream sandwich? My daughter who’s about to turn four is not into cake or cupcakes, but she ADORES cookies. This seems like a great alternative! I love everything about this post. 🙂
