I blinked…and now you are five. When I think back to what life was like 5 years ago yesterday, I can’t really remember. Or maybe, more truthfully, I don’t want to. Because I can’t imagine my life without hearing your laughter, silly jokes, and frequent “I love yous.” You are such a smart, fun, kind, awesome person, who never ceases to surprise, impress, and amaze me. I love being your mom, and I love that you’re turning into one of my best buddies.
You are the light of my life, little girl. Happy Birthday!
