Five Years

I’m taking a little crafting break today so I can spend the day with my little birthday girl who is TURNING 5! Last night we were going through some old photos of the past five wonderful, magical years. While I don’t *think* I overload you with too many family photos most of the time, today I just had to share some of my favs!

So yeah, I’m still in denial. It seems like only yesterday she was this little…


And this kid was even a little ham at 10 months…


One of my favorite pics of her around 13 months… “who me?”


18 months…


2 Years…


3 Years…


4 Years…


And here’s my baby girl all grown up at age 5!

Seriously, she’s matured so much in this past year!
She LOVES school and reads like a pro already. I’m one proud mama.

Since Ellie is my only child, I’m reminded daily of how precious every single moment is with this little girl. Seriously, in the blink of an eye she’s already grown into an amazing young girl.

Today for her special birthday day-of-fun she’s requested an outing to the movie theater, some playful fun at a local indoor bounce house, a quick visit with Santa, and if we still have enough energy, a night-time drive through a Christmas lights display! Yes, it sounds exhausting, but trust me… she’s worth it ;)

Plus if she’s gives me these big puppy dog brown eyes, I can’t say no.
