Six! I can't believe it. Six years ago you, Little C changed my life - all for the better! Did you know that 6 is the very number that I wore on all my sports jerseys - probably since I was 6 years old. It was my lucky number..... I hope this year also brings you great things.

Over the past year you have grown by leaps and bounds. You have started kindergarten and love going to school full days. On the first day of school this year you asked me if I could sign the letter to allow you to stay for the afternoon - you love school that much!!!! I love it too - seeing your passion to learn is so inspiring!!!!

You have also excelled in your swimming! This summer we spent a lot of time swimming - at the aquatic center, at Grandma's house, at the lake. You love it and your biggest accomplishment was the zip line which you did independently at the aquatic center. You are already looking forward to the body slide next year when you are tall enough to ride alone.

Your friends are many! Every day you eat lunch with Sanaa, Maya and Felix. You also tell many stories of the silliness that you and Grayson come up with at school. It amazes me how quickly you make and welcome new friends.

Your sisters adore you (for the most part)! Baby Doll O likes to follow you around and mimic you. Because of this, you can often get her to do things for you - like helping you clean up your room, or bringing your clothes to your room. You and Bean are also good friends and play extremely well for each other. It makes me smile every time you "stand up" for her and support her!

One of the things that cracks me up about you is your consistency with food. Right now you will eat waffles every morning for breakfast, and PB&J sandwiches for lunch with a cheese stick! There is usually no reason for me to ask what you want to have as the answer is always the same!

Some of your favourites
Sports - tennis, soccer, baseball, basketball,
Outside activities - swimming, riding your bike
Inside activities - computer (Disney, PBS, nick jr) and Wii (Mario & Sonic Winter Olympics)
Food - broccoli, pizza, waffles
Colour - Pink (yes you are influenced by your sisters and I)

For your birthday, you asked me to join you for lunch and I was happy to oblige. We walked hand in hand to the lunch room, and your smile was beaming! I was so proud of you as you let me sit beside me joining your circle of friends. You helped me get my food and then you got me my water and even cleaned up my tray! It was great to share part of your day and made me think of how much you have grown up!

I love you tons little C. Happy Birthday!
