How Time Flies……


I still cannot believe that my baby girl turned 7 last week…7 years old……really, how did that happen so quickly??? It truly feels like it was just a few months ago that she was 7 MONTHS old. Although, honestly I don’t remember very clearly what it was like to have a 7 month old and believe me, I am glad to be done with bottles and diapers. But really, 7??? How did that happen.

We decided to have her party at Build-A-Bear Workshop this year, which limited the guest list to 5. It really wasn’t too hard for her to choose, though—first on the list was her cousin, Mackenzie, quickly followed by her 4 best friends from day care & kindergarten—Roman, Cooper, Mandi & Gavin. Other than Gavin (who she met in kindy), she has known these friends since she was about 2 years old. They have literally grown up together, and even though between the 5 of them they go to 3 different schools for first grade, they remain best friends. I am so grateful she has these sweet kiddoes in her life!!

They all had a TON of fun making their animals & choosing outfits.  I highly recommend BABW for a birthday party!! After that we were off to McDonald’s for lunch, opening presents and devouring GIANT birthday cupcakes from Costco. I would say it was one of Em’s best parties ever (although last year’s party at Captain Henry’s Pirate Store was a huge hit, too!)

Here’s looking forward to another year being Momma to this beautiful child. Daddy and I are so blessed to have you in our lives. I love you baby girl!!!
