My baby turns SIX

We’ve got a birthday, shout HOORAY! My baby turns SIX today, and she’s been so excited for days…weeks…even a few days ago, telling everyone in the stores we went to that it was her birthday soon. Oh, the delight. All day yesterday, so excited, but as I tucked her into bed, she started crying about being sad that she will no longer be able to say her age on just one hand anymore. I’m pretty sure she’ll wake up excited, and forget all about that incident. As for me, I’m ok. I don’t tend to get too sad on birthdays, I just think of the fun and excitement about their special day.  I did a little photo shoot with my girl, with an Elsa costume on, since we are knee deep into FROZEN party planning. I’ve been sharing with her Frozen Lunch Jokes all week, and soon will be the par-tay! I’ll just share the pictures now…
