Violet Turns Five!

20131122_182229Violet turned five this past week. She had been counting down the days all week long and for months she has been looking forward to being old enough to join Little Flowers.

To me, her being actually five is a little weird because I feel like she has already been five for the past year and should be turning six. She has always been advanced for her age (walking at 10 months, talking in full sentences by 1 and a half, etc.) and at times I have had to remind myself that she was still only four.

She woke up the morning of her birthday and said, “Mom! Tonight I am going to turn 5!” I explained that she was already five. “Now? In the morning?” she asked. It was really cute, it turned out that she thought that she would turn 5 when she blew out her candles that evening. The whole day she was mystified by exactly what mechanism she had actually turned five, and she kept asking me questions about it. She wanted to know at what point in the night she had turned five.

I took her and the girls to the mall, and I let her shop for herself at Claire’s Boutique. She picked out a plush diary with a lock and pen, and two sets of clip-on earrings, which she bought with money from her piggy bank.

That evening we went out to dinner and then came home for cake, presents and a really gross and brightly colored cotton candy ice cream she had picked out. Boooo, Thrifty’s, booooo.

We got Violet a spirograph thinking that she is so artistic she would love it. It’s just like the one I had when I was a kid, but she wasn’t too interested in it and I think she is maybe still a little too young for it since it requires particularly fine motor skills. Ivy loves it though, ha!

Ivy got her a stamp set, which she was absolutely overjoyed about. I accidentally stopped recording, but her reaction was priceless, so I am bummed I missed it. Still, I got this photo.  You would have thought it was a million bucks. Win!


“Ivy, how did you know I wanted this??? Wow!!!”

So Baby Numero Dos is now five years old. Where does the time go???


Oohing and ahhhing over the stamp set
