Sof is officially six.  Which feels way older than five. 



I’m so thankful for those little baby teeth that are still hanging on, because once those go, there’s no turning back. 

We started her special day with donuts for breakfast.



She was super excited for school.  She was the leader of the day, so she brought snack, had Buster Bear, and got to open a birthday book in class.  The fall fair was that night, and she wasn’t too happy about not “celebrating” her birthday.  Once we got there though, she had a great time and I knew I made the right choice in taking her. 


We planned to celebrate the next night at Em’s house, but I realized afterwards that Alexa had another birthday party to go to and Adrienne was going to homecoming that night.  I let Sof open some presents with the girls in the afternoon, and they both spent some time playing with her.


Once we got the big girls off, we headed to Em’s to celebrate with the cousins and Aunt Anne.  Em made dinner and dessert, and had some of the neighbors over.  It was a fun night and made Sof feel special.



You can just see in these pictures how much she loves being sung to.  She loves that 30 seconds when all the attention is on her. 


This weekend we will celebrate with her friends in a little Build A Bear party.  Her birthday has been a little all over the place, but she is too so it works!  Regardless, her life has been adequately celebrated for the blessing it is.  My little 6 year old package of joy.  It’s a privilege to love her.
