Happy, Happy Birthday!!!

Last year, I complained about how time is going by too fast!  I still have the same complaint….it’s going by too fast! 

***Meg – last year on her birthday***

Five was AMAZING, but I’m very excited about six.  Meg is growing up into a little lady and I’m loving every minute of it. 

This morning, Megan turned SIX.  Six seems so grown up.  She doesn’t need my (or want) my help any more.  She doesn’t tell me she’s going to go watch TV or have a snack or go to the bathroom, she just does it.  It’s the little things that are changing that I will miss the most. 

P8210011I’m no longer Meg’s best friend…I have been replaced by her old friends and new friends.  I’m no longer asked to go outside with her in the driveway to color with chalk, hit golf balls, ride bikes, throw water balloons or listen to the radio.  Now, she tells me that she’s going to go play outside with her friends, she’s going to paint my driveway with her friends, listen to the radio with her friends. 

At six, Meg’s a total girlie girl, but doesn’t mind rough housing either.  She loves Six Flags (she even rode the Titan this weekend).  She is an amazing swimmer.  Her favorite movie is Avatar (we even were able to take her to see it in the theater on Friday – IMAX 3d).  She’s into fashion (although, sometimes I question her fashion statements).  She loves to read, color, tell stories, play outside, ride her bike, play with her friends, to blow bubbles with gum, and to apply lip gloss.  

This year was full of milestones…
