My Baby Turns 5

Happy 5th Birthday, Audrey! You are such a big girl, and always ready to help. You've been looking forward to turning 5 for a long time, and on Sunday June 7th it finally happened! Now you can relax a bit--don't worry about growing so fast--you made it! You do such a great job doing your school work just like the big kids, you can swim by yourself and carry in the groceries (even the really heavy ones!). Growing can be hard work, so if you ever get the urge to just cuddle in and stop working for 15 seconds, go ahead. Be patient with all of us as we learn that you are not the baby any longer, as we learn to let you do things by yourself, and even accept your help when you offer. Thank you for entertaining us with your original songs, and your love of horses. Thank you for encouraging us with your faith in God. May you have a wonderful year!


  1. Happy Birthday, Audrey! I hope you know how special your Mommy is.

  2. Just found your blog (on the Sonlight forums :). Our dd will be 5 in August. It's such a fun age, isn't it?! - Janette
