Dear T (age 6)
Your birthday came and went in August without even a peep on my blog. Of course, now that K (age 8) has had a birthday too, I figured that I should get on the ball!
You are fortunate enough to have an amazingly loving and creative sister. She planned a “Birthday Eve” party for you. We made muffins and gave you, “Little B", a fuzzy littlest pet shop penguin because your birthday party theme is going to be penguins.
At bedtime, you sweetly asked me, “Please take my picture when I am sleeping. It will be the last night that I go to bed as a five year old.”
How could I refuse?
On your birthday morning, I was the lucky parent who got to enjoy a special breakfast with you. (We alternate years and I get the even years…2010 is even) We had a lovely time at the Bagel place in the village center.
And beauty, on the inside and out.
When it came to your party day, you celebrated it as only you would think to do…with SIX ponytails for the SIX year old.
Your daddy produced another amazing cake! The theme was penguins, so he made you an adorable penguin.
You wanted the face, which looked a little strange on your plate.
We had a great time! I think everyone had fun, including you, the special birthday girl!
Happy (very late) Birthday my wonderful daughter. I love you dearly!
