5th Birthday

Today my little girl turned 5. She was so excited she told me, because now she is the same age as her friend Kailee. For me, it was an emotional day and I'm not sure why this birthday was more more emotional for me than than usual. Maybe it's because this is the first birthday that Gracie has celebrated without my brother Frank. I don't know but more than once, I found myself with tears in my eyes. Either way, my sweet baby girl is another year older and as a couple of people have told me, Gracie is now one whole hand, lol! I let her pick anything she wanted to eat for dinner because birthdays are very special, so Gracie chose to have orange chicken from our local chinese restaurant. Saturday, we are having her birthday party and she can't wait. My little girl may be growing up but she's not too young to lay in bed with me and rest her head on my shoulder, while I read stories to her, just as I did tonight.

Happy Birthday Gracie, we love you very much!!

The pictures below were this morning and not the best quality as I was rushing before taking Kyle to preschool and Gracie to kinder.
