The Big Birthday Is Coming!

So, there's no escaping it.  My little lefty is turning 5 next month.  Part of me CANNOT believe it and a whole other part of me REALLY CAN believe it.  Seeing as last week I told her that boarding school might be in her future!  Ah, no, she's back to her old self again and we're having a great week.  Hope I didn't just jinx myself!
My Baby

5, really?  Five years ago I was teaching fifth grade in Sudbury, just counting down the days until our lives would be forever changed!  And nope, you weren't a boy at all!  You had everyone fooled Miss Emily!  She's becoming such a big girl.

She's got a lot of amazing qualities that resemble both Mommy and Daddy. Stubborn, hilarious, intelligent, curious, determined, quick-tempered, happy, and helpful just to name a few. I love how she gets herself dressed, eats her dinner (more or less), tells her brothers how much she loves them on an hourly basis, buckles her own seatbelt in the Traverse, fetches burp cloths and diapers, brushes her own teeth and hair and most of all - wipes her own bum!  :)  I hate how her cute little girly clothes are constantly being tucked away into big bins, how her baby teeth will soon start to fall out and how she has recently found her "tude."  Oh, the joys of growing up.
"Let's Keep Him"

Trying on Mommy's Glasses
Being born on November 27th has led to a few lack-luster birthday parties for Miss Emily, especially last year when her birthday fell on Thanksgiving.  So this year, we've decided to go all out and scope out a place where she can invite her "big-girl" friends.  I must admit, I'm super excited about not having to clean my house for the before and after!  (We're doing Thanksgiving this year, so I guess I don't REALLY escape it...)

5.  I look at my little Owen and think how he'll be 5 in a flash.  I love our moments.  I look at Aidan and do double takes, saying to myself, "he's just two, Annie, although he wears a 3T and talks like a four-year-old, he still can't do stairs."  Almost 5, 2 and 3 months.  It's a very busy house.  And I love it.
Emily, Owen, Aidan
