An Almost 5 Year Old

I cant believe that my oldest DD is almost 5 years old!!! Where has the time gone? My girls are growing up so fast.

But I have really noticed it with Alexandra. She seems so mature. She helps tremendously with the baby. She will get her out of the bassinet and will hoist Bri over her shoulder and burp her. Last night she tried a little bit of everything for dinner (we had a middle-eastern braised beef stew). I told Matt how I am so thankful that she will at least try new food. Some kids will only eat chicken nuggets and that's it.

Tonight I asked her what she wants to do for her birthday. She is starting to get some ideas and seems really excited. One advantage to moving to Savannah is that Alexandra will never have school on her birthday (she is a St. Pattys day baby). She is thinking about having a green themed birthday...hmmm maybe we could have a "green" birthday. I will have to brainstorm some on that idea....


  1. Hello there... Im Anelys from the Cloth Diaper Whisperer's blog... You may want to stop by today! =)

  2. Congrats! I popped over from Cloth Diaper Whisperer blog. My mom lives in RI and I live about 2 hours from Savannah. Stop by our blog sometime.

  3. I'd love to hear about if you DO make it a "green" birthday party. I've been trying to decide how we're going to handle our baby girl's 1st birthday. I'd love for it to be "green" also. :)
