I love to laugh and love with my family, read, exercise, cook and sew, all the while giving thanks to God for his immeasureable love and faithfulness to me.

You're 5!!

Chinese Noodle you are 5 today!  We can't believe it!  You have been sooo excited for your birthday and the opportunity to say that you really are, truly, 5 (even if you're not in Kindergarten yet, which is the other thing you're desperate to say).  The past few days you've been chattering away non-stop, swinging from every piece of furniture/handle/railing you can find and bouncing around until you crash.  Quite honestly you've been exhausting both me and Daddy with your activity level, but we love to see you so full of life!
As a 5 year old, you can tie your shoes, ride a two-wheeled bike, zip up your coat, and state your phone number and address.  You continue to love Thomas and Ka-Chow/CARS.  You claim that "Barbies are scary"--ha ha!  Your favorite food is still rice, with Chinese food being a close second, but you're also really into soup lately.  You still fall asleep in the afternoon anytime we are driving in the car for more than 10-15 minutes ("My carseat makes me fall asleep") and by 7:30 if you're not heading into bed, watch out!! 
Your little personality continues to develop and you're becoming more willing to talk to other adults and are taking less time to "warm up", as you like to say.  You also are becoming more vocal in what you want to wear and how we do your hair--braids and piggie-tails.  Good thing we instituted that one 'day a dress/one day pants'--that saves us all (usually) in the mornings :)
You have such a sweet heart and love to help out either Daddy or myself.  Your silly nature and antics keep us laughing but your serious side is never far away either.  Both Daddy and I are so proud of how you are growing and learning about how to be the best little girl that God intends for you to be.  We know that you put a smile on his face, just like you do ours.  We love you to the China moon and back and still stand in awe that God has given us the privilege of being your parents.  Enjoy your special day!!!!!!!!!!!!!
