My baby turned six last Tuesday. SIX.
It's hard to believe how big and capable she's gotten. And even more than her physical capabilities, she starting to develop the sort of empathy and ability to think about others that makes a parent delighted to discover they might not be raising a little sociopath after all. And despite spending pretty much all day with her for the past six months, I'm enjoying her company enough to sign up for another year of homeschooling. She's funny and creative and an excellent big sister.
That all adds up to a pretty great kid. Happy Birthday sweetheart.
I would like to note that she looks about 8 FEET LONG in this picture, which is pretty much accurate for how she's growing these days.
