Brooklyn | FIVE

Somehow five years have past since our sweet, squished nose girl came into this world.  Your birth was a complete and utter whirlwind.  While I wouldn't go back and relive the days leading up to your birth... getting you out of all of it, makes it worth it.

I didn't do a fourth birthday post.  We were in the early stages of a worldwide pandemic.  Covid-19 came in and completely rocked mama's world.  I had beliefs that we would come out of the other side of it and host your 4th birthday party.  To this day you haven't had a friend birthday party and that makes me sad.  Nothing about your birthdays has ever been standard and normal.  But the years to come we will make special and all about you.

At 5...

-You love to color and be crafty.

-You love workbooks. A lot. I can't wait to see how you love kindergarten this fall.  I think you are going to take to it like a fly.  You love learning.

-You are sassy and you have a temper.  Both of which probably come from mama.  We are working on productive ways to express ourselves and most days are really good.  Every now and again though.. LOL.

-You love lounging in pajamas all day long. You are not a fan of getting dressed unless it leads to something fun.

-Your love language is definitely touch.  You love to dole out hugs and sit right on top of/next to people.

-You got a bike for your birthday and immediately took to it.  I wouldn't at all be surprised if you don't bust out of training wheels before your big sister.

-You love to swing.  Especially if someone is pushing you.  We are still working on learning how to do it yourself. I  think it will happen soon!

-You love hand feeding the chickens.  Crazy girl.

-You have an ornery streak at least a mile wild.  You make me laugh so much with some of your antics.  

-You have mastered hiding the mess in your room.  Tucking the toys and other things in the corners and under beds to get done faster.  I give you credit for figuring that out on your own.  Even if it drives mama insane.

-You love daddy, cheese and the color pink.

-You love barbies and dolls still. You got some new barbies for your birthday and latched on to them with extreme possessiveness.  You've always been my doll girl.

-You love to jump in every last puddle and don't mind getting your hands dirty in the mud, the rain or the snow.  I think you'll be daddy's best friend when it comes to all things outdoors.

-You have a great throwing arm and I think you may also be our sporty girl.  The pandemic set us all back as we were supposed to start soccer with both you and Grace last year but it got postponed because of the virus. Maybe this next year will bringing those new opportunities.

To my Brooklyn girl,

This last year has been crazy.  To say the least.  Getting to spend all day everyday with you and your sisters has often been hard.  But nothing that I can't overcome with one of your hugs.  You are a fierce lover and I am so proud to be your mama.  You keep me laughing and on my toes.  I am obsessed with what you find joy in.  I can't wait to see what the next year of starting school is going to bring to you.  You are already teaching yourself so very much with a constant need to appease your learning cravings.  You can't wait for kindergarten and it is going to be the best ever.  Thanks for being the perfect middle between your sisters.  We love you so, so much.
