Happy Birthday, Baby!

So, the story goes that, once upon a time, there was a young girl. She kinda really liked her birthday and hence, began celebrating it for weeks (read: a month). That young girl became a young woman and gave birth to some children. One day, on her birthday, her surprise 5th child came into the world and forever stole that (not as) young woman's birthday.

And her heart.

This girl:

This spunky, stubborn, sometimes sensitive, girl is the one who is the birthday/heart stealer.

Never before in my (the "not so young woman" mentioned above) life have I ever received a birthday present that is as perfect as the one I received that February morning 5 years ago.

A tiny bundle of spunk, wrapped in pink and nestled into my arms stole my birthday right out from under me...and became the gift that no one, ever, will be able to top. She is amazing.

Full of "piss and vinegar" as they say, but also full of hugs and love and laughs and sunshine. She is a mighty force all wrapped up in a tiny little package.

Headstrong, certain of what she wants and even MORE certain of what she DOESN'T want...and she's not afraid to let you know it!

Silly girl.

This little spark has lit our lives. She's an amazing, incredible, (sometimes frustrating) peanut that is the perfect finale for our family!

We love you Baby Girl! Happy 5th Birthday!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)
