Happy Birthday to My Sweet Girl

It’s so hard to believe that my little girl is 5 years old today.
5 years have gone by in what seems like the blink of an eye.
Weren’t you just a little baby in my arms a few minutes ago?

You’ve already become your own person, with your own distinct personality.

You’re fun and good-natured, and you let Mommy take silly pictures of you.

You have so much talent and such big dreams.

I’m so proud of you, and I can’t wait to see what the next 5 years will bring.
Your mommy loves you, peanut.
Happy 5th birthday to my sweet girl.

Dislikes: people who copy stuff off the internet without giving credit, and county clerks who can't tell the difference between Eastern and Pacific time zones. Secretly hopes her daughter will one day develop an interest in family history (but no luck so far).

  1. Happy, happy birthday to your adorable daughter!

  2. Happy Birthday!!!

    I must admit that I just teared up reading that – but then again, I am such a sap for things like this!

  3. Charming pictures of a charming child (especially as she reminds me of my younger great granddaughter!). I hope she has had a great birthday.

  4. Aw, Happy Birthday to your daughter. She looks like such a sweetie!

  5. What a cutie she is! Enjoy her birthday and keep taking those priceless pictures!

  6. Thanks to all of you for your sweet birthday wishes to my little one.

    @Elyse, I cried when I wrote the post, so we’re in the same boat. Moms are big saps like that.

  8. Belated happy birthday to your darling daughter who shares this special day with my wonderful son (age 25)!

  10. Totally charming! (I especially like how she’ll follow in mom’s footsteps with her “Lost my census” t shirt!)
    My oldest son turn 25 on June 22nd (just like Amanda’s) .I still remember taking 5-year old Evan to his first day of kindergarten — now he’s a man. Their childhood just FLIES by. Happy Birthday to this little darling.
