Happy 5th Birthday GGirl
Today was your birthday. You were very adamant last night that you wanted to help decorate and make your cake, so you helped make the cake with me. I'm glad you weren't too upset that Mommy and Daddy wanted to surprise you with the decorations or with the cake decorations.
You have watched your friends at school celebrate their birthdays and I know you were very excited to be the Birthday Girl today. The hat that you received at school this morning has not left your head. (Except for the brief moment when MMan swiped it and things got a little sketchy for a few minutes!) MMan, Daddy and I all went to school to share a special snack with your class this afternoon - grapes, pears, strawberries, dip and donuts were you're snack of choice.
After homework, it was fun gifts from family and friends near and far, and your birthday dinner. A few days ago, you found a recipe in my cookbook for MahiMahi with Mango sauce. MahiMahi ended up on my shopping list. For the first time in, well ever, I cooked fish. You didn't like the sauce. Daddy won big, being the only one in the house remotely interested in the Mahimahi. The rest of us feasted on mac and cheese, hot dogs and green beans. And a pink and purple cake with ice-cream too of course! We shared that moment with Granny and Granddad on skype, and missed getting pictures - but that's ok. It's more important to share the moments!
The biggest birthday surprise came part-way through dinner when you announced to us that you had a wiggly tooth! Nobody was more shocked than me! My baby's losing her teeth already!
GGirl, you are kind and gracious to your friends. You are, mostly, loving to your brother. You love to learn and your independence is fierce. I love to listen to you sing songs you make up and watch you dance to the music of your mind. Your creativity and imagination know no bounds. I love you and can't wait to see what comes in this next year of our life. I love you GGirl!
