S turned six the other day, and her birthday fell during a week of school vacation. So the celebration stretched across week, with extra time spent together and a few outings and events scattered across the days.
I can't stop thinking about how quickly she's growing up, which I know is what every parent feels. The pediatrician said she's grown three inches since last year, and her school uniforms are already starting to look short. She's acting so grown up, too. Todd and I have been commenting about how much fun it is to hang out with her. We have great conversations, and she can both take and give a lot of teasing. Five was a really good year, and I think six will be a lot of fun for all of us.
I wanted to track her changing preferences as she matures, so I made up this little "All about me" page that I plan to give her every year on her birthday. She can complete it herself, and we'll save them all so we can look back to see how long her favorite color remains pink and whether she still wants to be a teacher when she's in sixth grade.
You can download a copy of the page if you'd like to use it for your own kids.
