This increasingly bonkers, perpetually loud, occasionally over-emotional, wickedly funny, outrageously wise-beyond-her-years, delightfully snuggly girl IS 5 YEARS OLD TODAY!
I think I might need a minute to regroup. How exactly has 5 years passed without me noticing? Seriously? Gone. In the blink of an eye. Scary.
There she is this morning looking a little bed-heady while she opened her presents before Daddy left for work. She loves the Doctor Who Annual and is firmly of the opinion that David Tennant (her Doctor, apparently) rocks. I’m not one to argue with that.
Unfortunately for Miss Grace today is also the first day back at school. Yes, today. Not Monday. Despite me getting her up and dressed and as far as the school gates on Monday Morning. D’oh! *Note to self – Pay more attention to school newsletter*
Here she is all togged up in her uniform and ready (if not willing) to go.
How can it be that only 3 months ago she looked so small going to school?
How much have her legs grown in 3 months?? Oh my! And look. There, in the photo. SUNSHINE! Do you remember that stuff?
We’re not doing much celebration wise today as we’ve got a big party (complete with clown/entertainer and many school friends) on Saturday. Just Gracie’s favourite for tea and maybe a little sneaky cheesecake action for dessert.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRACIE!!!
