Our first baby turns 5

Our oldest baby turned 5 today (for party details, see the last post). I can't believe how fast she's grown up. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital in a snowstorm (I guess January never changes). Oh, how do we describe Sofia? She is very sweet and truly appreciates beauty. She loves to make crafts, color, draw, and paint. She is really enjoying preschool and ballet, but loves to read books with us too. Her favorite color is pink and her favorite Disney Princess is Aurora. Sometimes we think she does everything she can to "make us proud" and rarely gets in trouble, though she does tend to excite easily and gets wound up quite often. She is very motherly to her little brother and sister as she teaches them to play games with her and helps them every morning to get their sippy cups from the refrigerator. She is a joy to have in our lives and we love her immensely.

Why is five such a big number? Nathan will turn five in June ... and I'm already freaking out.

I can't believe she's 5! You're on the countdown to school!! Sounds like you had a great girls day with her.

Holy Cow -- she looks 7+ in that picture. Congrats on her new fun and exciting age of enlightenment (I just love 5 year-olds)
