Happy Birthday Annabelle!

Of course this post was quick in coming as to be sure to give each child equal time:)  Annabelly is also 5-YIKES!!!  So here is a glimpse of our baby girl at 5:

Favorite Color: Pink
Favorite Restauraunt: Someburros

Favorite Activity: Riding my bike, or hugging my "sniffy pillow" (just realized in the pic our house looks like a candidate for the show "Hoarders", but be sure to watch the video where the house looks much nicer)

Favorite Part of School: Playground (gasp- I know)
Favorite Friend: Andrew

Favorite Movie: Anything Barbie or remotely involving princesses
Favorite Thing to do with Daddy: Go places with him
Favorite Thing to do with Mommy: Shopping (AHHH!! Am I in trouble or what?!)
Favorite Clothes: Dresses

Favorite Shoes: Fancy Flip Flops

What do you want to be when you grow up: A Painter
Favorite Book: Beautiful Brown Eyes, Angelina Ballerina
What do you want to learn when you are five? Read, write and add numbers

AHH!!  That last part melts my heart (good luck to her kindergarten teacher- no pressure).

We cannot believe our tiny baby girl is five.  It seems like only yesterday we brought home a four month old, 9 pound, itchy mess.  And here you are, a beautiful, smart, hilarous girl.  You asked Jesus into your heart this year and you have become so tender and curious about all things having to do with God.  You love to shop with me, convincing me every mommy needs a little shopper!  You love to try new things, you just ate Kale and loved it.  You are getting more and more confident about who you are- we are so proud of that.  You have been such a responsible young lady since Benjamin came home, always offering to help when we look like we need a hand.  You are quick to defend the "under dog" and we are so glad God has laid that on your heart.  We are so excited to see what the next year will hold for you sweet Baby Princess.  We love you!

We are so proud of you!  You have made it to five with your adventurous spirit and no broken bones!  Although you did just get your first bike, so we will see.  You love to giggle and make jokes.  You are a big guy with an even bigger heart.  You love your trains, your bike and imaginative play.  You have also just started to enjoy singing, which melts my heart every time.  You are very sensitive, sometimes overly so which sometimes leads to "emotionally charged episodes" (see fits).  You are very protective and loving when it comes to anyone he loves, especially his brother and sister (beware all bullies and possible suiters).  You still love to snuggle on the couch with your silky and occasionally you suck your thumb.  We love that there are tiny bits of little Andrew left in this big package.  You are wicked smart and we keep praying you will continue to use that power for good, not evil!  We love you so much Bubby and cannot believe you are five!  Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!
