And the babe turns six

 I feel like I say this every year, but apparently it needs repeating.....where has the year gone?  I think that Maddie's birthday is always the most raw for me because she was my first little baby and the one that breaks me into each new age.  I get a taste of what five will look like for all of my children thanks to Maddie! 

I think that five was a very good year for Maddie!  She did so much growing, both physically and mentally and I feel like this was a big break though year for her emotionally.  It was an emotional year for the mama as well.  I saw my girl graduate and leave the preschool that she attended since she was two and I also dropped her off for her first day of kindergarten and the beginning of her journey through primary school.  So far she is really enjoying school....hopefully that sticks.  Maddie also started dance classes this year and LOVES them!  She needs a little work on the gracefulness, but her heart is very into it.  We had a busy and fun filled year, camping, trips to the beach, a vacation to California, swimming, running and playing.  I love watching my girl grow and spread her wings.  She is turning into such a beautiful girl inside and out.  I love her quirky sense of humor and her inquisitive nature.  Her enthusiasm is infectious and her smile (when its not forced) will knock your socks off.  I can't believe how tall Maddie is getting and how intelligent she is.....some of the concepts that she is able to grasp really amazes me!  I am looking forward to her 6th year and everything it will bring.  

I love you Maddie!  You are such an amazing little girl with a huge heart and I'm so glad that you are mine.
