Now she is six




When I was One,

I had just begun.





When I was Two,

I was nearly new.





When I was Three

I was hardly me.





When I was Four,

I was not much more.





When I was Five, I was just alive.





But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,

So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

Happy Birthday!
I especially appreciated the link to last year's post, with her birth story. Brought tears to my eyes -- tears of joy for you and Kiddo and hubby. What a beautiful family!

I've said it for at least 4 years and I will say it again - Kiddo is one of the most stunning children I have ever been privileged to know.

She is also fun, sweet, smart and adorable. And gets more so every year!

Finally, this post made me cry. The photos! I think I came along about 1-1/2 but I cried and cried over 5 and 6. Gosh! Canshe get more lovely? Bigger? More adorable? And I know the answer is yes, all times.

Happy 6th, sweetie. Bean sends you kisses and fish wishes. And Auntie Coco hugs you hard over the Intertubes.
