But also, at the same time, in my most honest moments, I do admit to myself that I miss that baby. A lot. I guess because she's the youngest and now that she isn't a baby, there is no baby. And that doesn't quite seem "normal" yet...
But then I look at my girl, and I know that I'd never wish to go backwards with her. And I can't wait to go forward because I'm pretty darn sure that with her, it's going to be one fun ride!
A newish tradition at our house--birthday doughnuts! Powdered sugar ones, of course.
Opening presents before school and work.
A special birthday lunch with her special BFF.
These 2 were too cute! And boy did they milk that lunch! They must have known that naptime was on the horizon because they both ate every. last. bite. And took over an hour to do so! Ha!
That evening we surprised M with her gift from us--a new bike. No more Hot Wheels brand hand-me-down. No sirree. This bike is nothing but pink and purplicious all over!
Then it was off to 3rd St. Mexican for dinner...
Sweet sis had a good day...and went to bed dreaming of mermaids...
For that Saturday was party day! Check out my Ariel cake!!!
"Under the sea..."
Miss M had some moves!
Carter said, "No thanks." :)
But Neighbor Rich gave it a whirl...
