"Is it still my birthday?" asking at lunch time.
"Will I be 6 tomorrow?"
"When I go to sleep and wake up, will it be my birthday?"
We had a lovely party day, having invited only family and one close friend with 3 children. I planned ahead and baked the cakes and made the potato salads the day before, so all I needed to do was relax and let Hubby man the grill.
I can't believe my baby is 6. Where did the time go?? I can remember every detail of her birth as if it happened yesterday, and yet it was 6 years ago since I've pushed her out and held her in my arms, admiring her face, marveling at the miracle of it all and seeing the tears in Hubby's eyes.
She has grown into a lively, strong-willed, young girl, with a penchant for investigating and wanting to know the answers to "Who, what, when, where, why and how". When she tries to wiggle out of a tight spot, she never fails to start an explanation with: "I just wanted to tell you something..." She is both a great big sister and a bossy sister. She hoards her goodies but expects her sisters to share theirs with her. She is destined for great things and I hope that she achieves whatever she wished for when she blew out her candles.
Happy Birthday my Little One. We love you so very very much!
