She's Five!

The girl that has stolen my heart from the moment I heard "It's a girl" turned FIVE today.
I'm as shocked as she is.

She woke up and said, "I'm Five? I'm Five. Woah."
She found each brother to tell them she was five.
The conversation kept going like this .. .
"I think I got bigger."
Coleson joined in and affirmed it, "You do look bigger Tatum."
They did a check standing next to each other and sure enough Coleson was sure she was bigger.
Carter and Coleson both agreed that they felt bigger today too.

Our day has been a little different than planned.
She's sick.
Fever and tummy but feeling better each hour.
She ate one bite of that donut that she was so thrilled to be having.
So we've watched tv today, read books, watched more tv, read another book, did a little project together, slept, and right now she's asleep and her cake it baking in the oven.
It's not quite the day I had in mind but time sitting with her listening to her breath reminded me of our first day together in the hospital - snuggling and me listening to her breath.
I'd do that day over again 100 times.
I'm in love.
I'm so thankful for her life.
Happy Birthday Tatum.
