Birthday Girl

Well, Maggie turns SIX today. I’m so excited to have such a sweet six year old girl, but I also can’t stop thinking, “My, how time flies.” The first picture here is Maggie at two days old.

First Birthday (in her Pea Pod Baby sweater…I no longer have the pattern, so please don’t ask.):

And yesterday, at her 6th Birthday Party:

Maggie's Sixth Birthday

Maggie's Sixth Birthday

She did not get this bike for her birthday. It was the training wheels that were new, and she was beyond excited. There was also a new horn for the bike. We all went out last night to ride her bike for the first time. She was amazing, until she fell off; then she was forlorn.

My favorite picture I took of her yesterday was a knitting-related one. I’ve been meaning to get a picture of this sweater, because every once in a while she puts it on.

The sweater is the February Baby Sweater that I knit for her when she was one. ONE. And it looks better on her now than ever before. Although I do love this picture from April 2007, shortly after her 1st birthday.

It has been fun, if a bit teary, looking back at all these old pictures. But I need to stop so I can get ready to go to her classroom with cupcakes.

Happy Birthday Maggie!
