Today, somehow, you turn 5. Even if you were supposed to stop sucking that thumb when you turned 4.
I didn't intend for a few shots of your rockin' bedhead to become your 5-year-old portraits. But. We've been buried in feet of snow and frigid temps for weeks on end. The thought of dolling, then bundling, you up for outdoor photos?? Sigh. This momtog is becoming either too lazy or too pragmatic; probably a little of both. Instead, there we were -- comfy cozy in our jammies, camera nearby from my stealth capture the night before, you still donning that goofy mask. So I went with it... easy peasy and still very 'you', age 5. Fivefivefivefivefive... maybe if I keep saying it it will sink in?? :'(
That smile's been infectious from the time you were a month old. Five (five!) years later, you continue to bring so much joy and laughter to the lives of your family, your friends, your teachers. Happy, happy birthday to our happy, happy girl. ♥ We love you so much! xoxo
