Five Years Old

Olivia and Kayley,

5 years ago today you were born, and it was by far the happiest day of my life (I think.  The day I found out I was pregnant with you was right up there). I had waited SO long to have you. For many, many years before your Dad and I ever met I longed for you and worried I may never have you, or any child. But we were finally blessed with you and you were SO worth the wait!

The last five years have been so much fun.  I've SO enjoyed being your mom. I've loved taking you to storytime at the library, all the different parks we've been to, playdates with the mom's group, and McDonald's or the mall to play on the playground. I've loved playing with you at home, coloring, doing puzzles, playing with play-doh or doing crafts.  I'm SO thankful I got to stay home with you and enjoy all of that.  It means the world to me.

Olivia, you are so funny.  You say the cutest/weirdest/funniest/totally off-the-wall things.  You love animals and just adore our cats, especially Maisy.  There is hardly a moment you're not cuddling with/hugging/petting or generally tormenting her.  You are so lucky that she puts up with it!  You love to sing and dance.  You like to color but I wouldn't say that you love it.  You recently have taken an interest in playing on the computer.  You are very social, love to play with your friends and make new friends easily.  You still love Doggie but are not quite as attached as you used to be, and you still suck your thumb.  We need to work on that!  Here are some of your favorite things:

Color: Pink
Toy: Lego Friends
Food: Cheeseburger
Princess: Rapunzel
Place to go: Abby's house
Activity: Watching movies
Song: Perfect Day (from Barbie: Princess and the Popstar)
Book: Little Red Riding Hood

Movie: Tangled
Friend: Madeleine

Kayley, you are so smart.  You love to play on the computer and can maneuver around various websites well even though you can't read yet.  You are very good at puzzles.  You love animals and love to play vet.  You love to dress up and put on "shows" (dance shows, fashion shows, singing shows, etc.).  You are still very attached to your Gaga, although you will sometime accidentally sleep without it unfazed.  Like your sister, you still suck your thumb :( .  Here are some of your favorite things:

Color: Purple
Toy: Lego Friends
Food: Spaghetti
Princess: Rapunzel
Place: Kidz Bounce
Activity: Wii
Song: Here I Am (from Barbie: Princess and the Popstar)
Book: Some princess book that Kette has

Happy birthday to my precious girls!  I love you more than anything.
