Now That I'm 5....




............I can "squish" the meatloaf for you, Mom!


....I'm too old to drink out of sippy cups now...


...I'm not supposed to ride in a carseat anymore....


...no more little-girl hairbows for me--just clippies! (this one is definitely NOT going to fly!)


And, terror of terrors:


...am I old enough to wear heels yet, Mom?


Just about when my Mama-heart was about to quake within me, she woke up one morning and said sleepily, "I wish you could still pick me up like when I was little, Mommy." Whew...there's still some little girl left in there, after all :).

So sweet...and so true. We have to look really hard, but we usually find that little child. =) Miss you!


Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRACE!!!

So funny. Five-year olds are so mature, after all. Jack is 5, too, and thinks he knows absolutely everything. Convincing him otherwise seems to be a lost cause...
