Oh, birthday babe, we've arrived. It seems that officially you are no longer my little baby anymore. In fact, if we asked your opinion, you would emphatically insist that you were turning six like a certain big sister you adore.
Lucy, I have never met a kid like you. I mean this in the mightiest of great ways. Your zest for life, ferocious laughter and waaaaaaaaaay advanced vocabulary have kept us so keenly on our toes at all times. I don't know that there is anything that you are afraid of. Sister, you are an itty-bitty lot o' living.
You were pretty adamant that your video song be Despicable Me's "Bad, bad, day." We didn't oblige. I'm sorry. It's just that, you aren't our bad bad day... in fact you are the burst of sunshine to our very good good day. Can we arrange for all that happiness to stick around during the twos, please?
I am so looking forward to this next year with you. It will be our first ever alone without siblings for five whole days a week. I know how much you will miss Gabey during the weekdays. This year has been so special for the two of you. I see lots of sibling school lunchdates in our future.
If you decide that you are okay being my baby for the rest of always... I promise there will be no complaining here.
Happy Birthday, Lucy! Such a present you are to me!
