5 years old!!

Our sweet Taylor turned 5 today! I cannot believe it has been so long since she came into our family. She is and always has been so sweet. She is growing up fast! She seems as though she has been older for a while, but the number 5 has hit me. Taylor is a good helper and excellent big sister. We love her so much. Taylor is changing as she grows up... she has gone from a little tomboy to be more girly. For her birthday party (which she has been planning for over 4 months) we had Gracie, Laney, & Olivia come to a doll party. We deocrated onesies and made headband bows for their dolls. I think they had a fun time. It was hard for me, since 2 of her closest friends are Dalton & Jake. They did not come to the party, since doll stuff would be of no interest to them. I can't believe how much she is changing.



Tonight we were talking about her party and what her favorite gift was, & just so sweet she said that her very favorite present was her family & their love!! Doesn't she just melt your heart! Love her so much!!

I am so glad that her party went well. She really has been planning this for months. Will she need to have a boy party? I could suggest it, she is really good organizing parties. Your only responsibility would be the financing.

Gracie had a wonderful time. Taylor is a doll.

They grow up so fast. I was looking at my son yesterday thinking holy crap when did you get so old? Then I looked at myself in the mirror & said the same thing to myself, but not in a good way that time.

Happy Birthday Taylor! Can't believe how fast the time has gone by! It seems like yesterday we were doing little playdates when they were like nine months old! She is such a sweet girl! What a blessing to have her as your oldest:) She's such a good helper!
