Today is Amelia's birthday. We've been busy celebrating! There was the birthday party on Saturday and tonight we had a special birthday meal.
Amelia picked the menu: mashed potatoes (that's my girl!), corn on the cob, homemade tomato soup and chicken. Actually, she wasn't interested in the chicken, but I convinced her to let me add it so her Daddy would be happy!
So now she is six.
Every parent says it, but it's so hard to believe how fast they grow.
One minute she was a baby, and the next minute she was a six-year-old super hero.
Super Amelia takes to the course.
And her brothers are growing up faster than the speed of light right behind her!
Superman Sam, Batman Alex, and Spiderman Isaac show off their muscles.
Amelia helped make her Batgirl cake with plenty of sprinkles. After all, what's a birthday without sprinkles! Sam had flourless chocolate cupcakes with marshmallow creme. Actually, a lot of the kids chose those, and they must have been good because they were all gone.
Amelia, her friends, and her brothers wait to blow out the candles on the cake.
Happy birthday, baby girl. You brought lots of laughter and happy tears to our world. Mama and Daddy love you very much.
