Happy Birthday Alexandra Marie!

Alexa turned six years old on July 26th and I'm afraid I'm struggling with this birthday. Five years old was hard enough because it meant she would be going to kindergarten, but this is killer! I don't know what I'm going to do with all-day first grade!!!

I feel very blessed to have Alexandra as a daughter and I am so proud of the good girl she is growing up to be. She has always been my little friend and I hope to maintain this friendship I have with her throughout our lives. I love it when she gives me a hug so tight that it hurts my neck and she says, "Your the best mommy ever! Even when you're mad at me you're still the best." (Yes, I do get mad sometimes. Ugh.) Or when she says, "Will you still be my mommy when you're old and I'm a mommy?" She is so sweet and loving with her little sisters and is always trying to make them happy. She takes such good care of Grace and has no problem adjusting her games to accommodate Grace's abilities. I love that we can sit and have a grown-up conversation and be the best of friends. I love it when she follows me around the house and talks to me while I do my chores. I love that she likes to scrapbook with me and do our homework together. I love that she is so willing to give me hugs and kisses and is never afraid to show me that she loves me. I have always felt so blessed that she is such a polite and sweet little girl and I love her so much!
