On Tuesday our little girl turned five.
I don't know why but five seems so old to me.
I feel sad to see the baby days go. But I also feel profoundly grateful that God made Lucy a very snuggly girl, who still loves her blankie and loves to be held. Such a gift to her mama!
With her birthday in Thanksgiving week, Lucy will be doomed to family-only parties, unless I can get it together enough to give her a party a few weeks before the actual day. At least this year, we had so much family in town that it really felt like a party.
Lucy's requested dinner was "breakfast for dinner" and that meant bacon and waffles.
Imagine eating a nice meal of bacon and waffles. Now imagine someone slicing you a nice piece of birthday cake.
Sound unappetizing? You're right.
I think maybe two of us ate an obligatory sliver of cake. The birthday girl herself didn't even have any!
