5 Years Old

I will admit that after Baby 2, the nostalgia of Baby 1 turning another year older is a little easier on me. I don't love my girl any less, but I used to SOB looking at her baby pictures. Here are some of my all time favorites of Larkyn, debuting on 4/21/11 (her due date) and forever making my life more exciting.

These days, her life revolves around:

  • Playing outside (swings forever!)
  • Asking lofty questions about why cars can't drive on sidewalks and what does God like to eat?
  • Exploring new places
  • Ice cream, cookies, Fruity Pebbles, garlic bread, and taco salad
  • Dresses. The fancier, the better!
  • Story time before bed. Still my favorite part of the day with her
  • Her BFF, Rhys. She wants him around all the time. Except when she doesn't.
  • Swimming! I am excited for her to enjoy pool time this year instead of screaming. 
Happy fifth birthday to our strong, sensitive, funny, inquisitive, and thoughtful little girl. You are the best thing that ever happened!

Oh goodness. My little one just turned the BIG 1 last month and yes, I can be brought to tears in a matter of moments just thinking how quickly the first year flew by! What an adorable little girl you have and I love how you've captured such beautiful pictures of her over the past five years! I often get so caught up in the moment that I forget to take photos of my little one, but I must remember to do so more often so I have these great memories captured, like you do!
