Lila is FIVE!

On the morning of her fifth birthday, my dearest little Lila woke up with a very puffy face. I'm not exactly sure why, but it was sad to see. Luckily, it did not dampen her mood in the slightest!  We were still able to celebrate our first born on her day of birth.

Since her birthday was on a Sunday, we had to keep things local... to our house. :) We started off the morning with some birthday pancakes with extra sprinkles! She also wore her cute little birthday crown that she had saved from preschool.

Can you see how her face is all puffy? We never figured out why it happened, but it was mostly gone by the evening and all the way gone by the next morning.

Opening her family gifts. I love her reactions! Kids are the best.

She finally got her own barbie doll, Rapunzel. She's been wanting one for quite awhile. 

This year on her cupcake (a Nutella one... yum!), we put trick candles. She had a heck of a time trying to blow them out. :)

Our little girl is the light of our lives. She really does make the world a better place. Not just our world, either. She's incredibly kind and considerate. She is often thinking of others and concerned about how they can best be helped.

This girl is quite the little smarty, too. She learned a lot in preschool this year and very quickly. She was a very big helper for her teachers and other students. I can't wait for her to begin Kindergarten.

Lila really loves girly things like Barbies, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Frozen, princesses, dressing up, being a mommy to her baby dolls and stuffed animals, etc. That's not all there is to her, though, as she also really loves watching sports, playing soccer, running around, learning about animals, looking at insects (although she's terrified of flies in real life! Like, crazy scared!) and so many other things. 

The things that come out of her mouth always amaze me.  Sometimes she is the funniest little girl, sometimes the most thoughtful. Often she is very spiritual and teaches me things. 

We love this little girl. 
Happy Birthday beanie babe!
