F.I.V.E. Years *Old*!!!!!


Dear Angelina,

Well, it's official! Today you are 5 years old! It's hard to believe that five years ago today you were born!!! *whoa* talk about Flying time!!! It has definitely been a fast 5 years! A learning experience, which was both hard, and fun! As I keep saying, you are going to be in KINDERGARTEN in the fall! Wow*ie! I can hardly believe it! You are such a BIG girl!
I am proud to call you my daughter! You are an *extremely* smart little girl! You are now reading books, and not only reading books, but reading Dr. Seuss books! Pretty soon you will be reading chapter books all by yourself, and you won't need mommy and daddy to read you stories very often. I keep thinking about the last 5 years, and I can't help but smile, laugh, and get teary eyed! We have been through so much together, you and I! And of course daddy too! You have been through more than most kids your age, I think. I think the hardest thing was when we lost *Mum and Ba Ba* {Great Grandma & Great Grandpa Benner}. You were ::extremely:: close with them! Ba Ba past on Christmas Eve of 2004 and Mum past on October 13th of 2005. While you really couldn't grasp what happened then, you still talk about them often, and daddy and I show you their pictures a lot. We are working hard to keep their memory alive for you!
You have become so outgoing, and so much like your father! At times it is quite amazing! I almost feel, sometimes, that I am talking to daddy in a little girl form. *haha*. You are spunky, and can be sassy at times, but all in all, you are {SO} fantastic! Daddy and I are truly blessed to have you!! I thank God each day for you! Even when you make faces like this... *haha*


I think of all these things mentioned, the most *amazing* thing I witness daily is you as a big sister. You stun me! I think it's because I have never seen a little kid have the love for their sibling as you have for Zoe! So amazing, and truly wonderful! I thank God for this too!
Right at this very moment you are spending some quality time with daddy, and Zoe. And playing a princess video game on dad's new Nintendo DS. :) You also love to play on the computer, and just the other day figured out everything on your own! You put in your *My Little Pony* game, and figured out how to play it from there. You are truly amazing! I don't know if you are going to be a prodigy or not {your daddy thinks you will be}, but, if not, we'll *love* you just the same! Our love for your is endless! You definitely make our lives more interesting and fun! And, yes... sometimes hard. But, of course, we will {always} love you! I look forward to the years to come, but I am not rushing you! Please keep your sense of wonder, and your playful nature!

Love you!

Mommy. <3 onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_ySGuXcmr0bI/RlDQLeM9PMI/AAAAAAAABco/V_CdAB_nTBk/s1600-h/FIVE3.jpg">
