Zoey Grace is 5 Today ....

How does one wee warrior spend the morning of her 5th birthday? Much like she had to 5 years ago. Working hard. But this time, this time it was an entirely different kind of work and it was done with an absolutely radiant  smile.  Zoey spent the morning with her therapist Christian, whom she adores and if you ask her if she loves him, she makes this little shy look, drops her head to her shoulder, smiles and says " ooohhh". So darn cute. We are off to Starbucks, where we will people watch. One of Zoey's most favorite things to do. Then to our favorite little bookstore. And well, after that, who knows. We will just enjoy the day. Soaking it in for all that it is and all that it is, is simply beautiful.

Precious, precious, precious. I can see, in my mind, Zoey's shy acknowledgement of her love for Christian, and it makes me giggle. Little girl crushes are sooo sweet. Happy, happy birthday, radiant princess in pink.

Happy 5th Birthday Zoey Grace,

Oh, she is lovely.

When my daughter was 5 she wanted to marry my brother-in-law. She proposed often. I guess she eventually felt jilted because she is 14 now and no longer asks.

Bless her 5 year old heart.
Yay 5!

Heather your count-down to turning 5 is so beautifully written, it just brought me to tears. Mitchell was standing over my shoulder reading a bit and he said you simply have to publish. It is so honest and heart-felt, and filled with such emotion. Thank you for sharing with all of us.

And how adorable does Zoey look on her 5th birthday! And look what Christian is getting her to do :) Way to fight for her.
