My precious baby girl will no longer be my ‘baby’ tomorrow…tomorrow, she turns 5. She is convinced that overnight she is going to grow taller and think differently because she will be a big girl. I wish Daddy, My Love, was here to celebrate with us, but we know how much he loves us and are so proud of him for what he is doing.
I didn’t ever think I’d be celebrating my child’s 5th birthday with her being an only child, but I actually kind of love it. I love that we are able to really enjoy her and learn who she is. She is smart, fun, goofy, kind, caring, smart-mouthy at times, and just amazing! Of course, I’m a little biased, but I get that right!
She came into this world in a dramatic way (see: Birth Story) and we are so incredibly lucky to have her, to be blessed with such a wonderful little girl.
Tomorrow, she will wake up to ribbons on her door and presents in the living room. I want to make it a fun day for her to play and enjoy herself. Friday, she will bring cupcakes (that she made) to her school. Then we will have a skating party for her in about a week! Hey, you only turn 5 once, right?!
I guess that is one nice thing about only having one child, I can do her birthday however I want and not feel guilty about it.
Anyhow, Happy, Happy Birthday my sweet, precious, BIG girl!
I still sing this lullaby almost every night to her.
