It seems just like yesterday that the entire family was gathered at the hospital anticipating your arrival and today you are turning 6! Where did the time go? I know we tell you all the time, but Mommy and Daddy love you more than words… all the way to the moon and back infinity times! We are so proud of the little lady you are becoming. Just this year you have been named Terrific Kid in your classroom and you have received the Character Award for the month of February… Caring. Those two awards alone are more important than all the 100s in the grade book. Watching you learn over the course of this year has been astounding. You are like a little sponge and absorb everything your teacher (Mrs. Gramling) teaches you. You are reading and writing up a storm and love to do math problems, tell time, and count money! Needless to say you are one smart cookie! Mackaylan, you make us laugh each and everyday with your sense of humor. Sometimes you try to be funny, but there are lots of times where you are witty and do not even realize it. One of your favorite things to do is tell knock-knock jokes. Even when we do not laugh at the joke we end up laughing with you because you always think they are hilarious even if they don’t make any sense to us at all! You love to color, play on the computer and/or your Leapster, and play with all of your Barbies. You also love every minute that you can spend with your Grams (and Pop-O) and Granny (and Granddaddy.) There are times when I think you would stay with them forever, but you know we could never let that happen. Mackaylan, you are going to be a wonderful big sister and we are positive that Lydia will think that you hung the moon. We sure do! We love you and hope this is your best birthday yet!
Happy Birthday, Mac-a-doodle!
