And now you are 6...

Dear Elizabeth,

I know every parent says this, but I'm going to say it too. I can't believe you are another year older. You are 6 already! It has been quite a year. The biggest thing that happened was Kindergarten. I remember last summer feeling so worried and stressed about the big change that was coming- you transitioning from Day Care to public school. I was especially worried about the bus ride you would have to take every day from school to your YMCA After School program. I hated that you were no longer going to be in the same place all day. But, of course, it all worked out fine. And as far as Kindergarten went, honey, I must say...you rocked it. You were one of the youngest, but you did great. You had a wonderful teacher, and made lots of nice friends in your class. I couldn't be happier with how it all went. And I couldn't be prouder of you. You also played soccer for the first time this Spring and I loved watching your games. You definitely weren't the most assertive player, but I loved that you were so social and enjoyed running around with the other kids. :)

Thanks to your Grandma, you took skating lessons, too, which you loved.

I want to remember some important things about you right now. You love our 3 pets that you talked me in to getting for us:) You especially love to hold and play with Eric the Hamster.

Your love of the water continues, and we are both so happy that summer is here. This means lots of pool and beach time for us!

You have lost 4 teeth now, and I love, love, love your beautiful smile.

You are starting to read, and have lots of sight words, which is so exciting!

Your favorite song is "Call Me Maybe." We love singing to that song played loudly in the car.:)

You've graduated from Nick Jr. to straight Nick, and your favorite show right now is Full House. Brings back memories for me!

You love the iPad, and play Mine Craft and Temple Run on it.

Your favorite moves are Annie, The Little Mermaid and of course, The Wizard of Oz.

You are a happy, fun loving girl who makes me, and everyone around you smile frequently.

I can't wait to see what the next year will bring. I have no doubt that 1st grade will be a fabulous as Kindergarten was. Even though I have been your mother for almost 6 years now, there isn't a day that goes by that I don't look at you and feel blown away by how lucky I am to have you for my daughter.

Happy, happy birthday my sweetie pie, I love you!!

Mommy

Oh, Annie -- what a great thing to wake up to today! Your writing about E totally makes me smile (and I take no smiles for granted!!!). What a beautiful, sunny girl. Happy Birthday from all of us, and a HUGE hug to you both!!

I can't wait to get together...we should email or talk in the coming days and set something up, now that I have (somewhat) caught my breath. And it just occurred to me: Rob and Jo's daughter Imogen is just about E's age -- I think a year older (??). (I know, what a horrible aunt.) Anyway, sometime I hope they can meet...Rob and Jo live in Sudbury now and even have a pool, which would be lots of fun! We'll have to figure it all out.

So talk soon? Hugs, Deb

P.S. You know, if you ever need a sitter...Annika is tops and she loves doing it. Just a thought...
