…..my Callie girl is five…...

…..the five year birthday is a sappy one for me……it is the transformation year of my child leaving my side and venturing into new turf filled with independence and thrilling new adventures……in another five years, my child will be brinking on tweendom…….it is the marker year of knowing there will be more time spent away from our home than in our home……bus rides, new friends and kindergarten are in the not so distant future and the days of filling the lazy morning or afternoon hours feel very, very far away……

…..today, my second born is five…..

….my runt of the bunch……

…the one who came out screaming and howling…..no one had ever heard a 6 pound, 4 oz baby make such a grand entrance…..

….from the beginning you demanded an audience and I don't see that part of you changing anytime soon…..



…..Callie, your love for life is contagious…...you stop others in their tracks, bringing smiles and forcing us to just be in the moment with you…...






….today we spent a good part of the afternoon together where I was all yours and you were all mine…..I watched you in awe and am so thankful for the joy and beauty you have added to our family…...



….you are a joy seeker, a thrill rider, a compassionate lover of animals, people, food and fun…..you are dainty, but tough and you are bold, but sometimes shy…...


….you love chocolate, fresh flowers, all things pretty, and you are the girl who stuffed animals were made for…..each of your furry friends has a name and you ensure each one has your undivided attention for at least a few minutes a day……

….you sing, you dance, and you twirl…..

….this too, you have done from the start…..




…..thank you for being you….

…..my blue eyed, kind hearted, God loving, thumb sucking little one…..


…..there is no one like you…..

…..Happy 5th birthday……you are loved beyond measure…..

Xx
