Kira turns 5

My baby is five today. I can't even believe it. It seems like just yesterday that she was a baby, crawling around as fast as she could. We would always play this game after her bath. I'd dry her off with her towel and stand up to go get her clothes and she'd take off crawling down the hallway with her little butt exposed under the towel...giggling the whole way. I'd chase after her and always snatch her up just before she got to the tile entry. I'll never forget that.

Now she is five. She will start Kindergarten in August. She dresses herself and brushes her own hair. She puts lotion on her face. She can get her own bowl of cereal. She can write and read many words. She knows our home phone number. Even though she is so big, she still tells me that she wants to stay little so she can always be my baby. I must record her saying this. Play it to her when she is a teenager.

I wanted to see how much she's grown, so I am posting a picture of her each year, from 0 until now.
