Five

.
.
There is simply nothing better in the world than turning five - you're old enough to understand that it's your birthday with all that that implies, and young enough that you gasp in delight when you open your gifts, thrilled with the fairies and the princesses and the tea sets, but still picking your brother's homemade card as your very favorite present.
.
Happy birthday to my incredible, wonderful, magical girl. To use your favorite expression, you're AMAZING. You've taken us on an unbelievable ride these past five years and I can't wait to see where you take us next. The sky's the limit, and you're reaching for the stars.
.
All my love,
Mommy

Oh wow... I found this one while snooping around trying to find a mention of when your birthday is (since you mentioned it and now I just have to know).

October 13 was my dad's birthday. He'd have been 76 on 10.13.08. And he'd have adored Maya I'm sure. She sort of reminds me of my niece, and he of course, adored her.
