It is hard to believe our big girl is five! I'm not exactly sure how that is possible, as just yesterday she was a tiny little infant in my arms.
This year she started preschool and became a big sister, both in less than a month's time, and she has rocked both of these new roles. Her adventurousness and independence has grown tremendously in the last year. She continually blows us away with her kind heart, her wittiness, and her intelligence. We cherish the opportunity to be her parents, to watch her learn and grow, and to marvel at the young lady she is becoming before our eyes. She asks a hojillion questions a day and says a hojillion x 2 words every day, and as exhausting as that is, it also gives us a glimpse into her mind and how it works. This is life at 5 with MC, and we wouldn't trade it for anything.
On the day of her birthday, we visited her preschool class with birthday treats and read a story to her class.
After school, we headed to the park for a picnic lunch and birthday cookies.
She opened her presents in the afternoon - she got a new music CD, some toys, and a charm necklace.
