Five Years Later

You know how people are always saying time goes by really fast? Well, it does. It only seems to go by faster every year.

I believe that’s especially true when kids are involved.

Over the weekend, we celebrated my niece’s fifth birthday. Her actual birthday was yesterday. I can’t believe she’s already five. I still remember the day I met her when she was just thirteen days old.

It’s crazy to think she’s not that tiny baby that was just an armful anymore. I can’t believe how much time has passed by!

In the past five years, she has grown into a happy, energetic little girl who’s favorite color is pink, favorite thing is My Little Pony, and firmly believes she is a princess.

We celebrated her birthday on Saturday with a My Little Pony themed bowling party. It was a bit chaotic with a bunch of preschoolers trying to bowl, but it was also a lot of fun! Sophia was a bit disappointed when she found she had to take turns, but she was so excited to get started.


As is true with any kid, it’s not always easy. It can be really hard get along with her sometimes when she’s not behaving, but I wouldn’t change it for anything.

Happy Belated Birthday, Sophia. I will always and forever love you!
