You've been waiting such a long time for this age!
You love to read these days...
You've had this "Animal Alphabet" book since you were a baby.
I love your scrunched face when you're concentrating on sounding out your letters....
I'd be confused too...why does "xenops" start with an "x" but sound like a "z" mommy?
Some things you read make you guffaw. I happened to capture you mid-guffaw and I still chuckle over this picture. I think I'll look at this whenever I'm feeling blue.
Other things make you giggle. You're at the age now where if I say "underwear", you cover your mouth and giggle away. Oh to be five.
You're only five and there's so much more to look forward to....your first day of Kindergarten, your first loose tooth, your first time riding a bike without training wheels.
You can't wait to do all these things...
I know you wish you'd hurry up and grow up, but we wish you'd slow down a little. Every year, I swear it seems like yesterday that I brought you home from the hospital...I guess my way of trying to slow down time is to take a million pictures.
Happy birthday to my little girl~
