{Smiley Mailee is 5}

This little firecracker is 5 years old today.

She woke up this morning and jumped out of bed and showed me that she was taller, that her arms were longer and that she just felt old.

When talking to her Uncle Michael on the phone he asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She quickly replied she'd like some Hello Kitty or Disney Squinkies - miniature figurines??!! of course she's obsessed! She informed Mike that he could get her more than just one set since they aren't expensive...that's my girl!

I asked Mailee what's so cool about being five. She held up her right hand and pointed to all her fingers and explained to me that every.single.finger. on her hand can now be used to say how old she is. She's also pretty convinced that the Tooth Fairy can make a visit since once you turn five your teeth magically loosen.

She loves to accessorize (wonder where she got that from). Notice in the pictures she's wearing an old necklace of mine, a bracelet she made, glittery nails and a ballerina bun (her favorite style).

I sure do love her loud and spunky personality. She's silly and caring and emotional.

Love you more than all the stars Miss Mai!

I can't believe she is 5. She looks so grown up in those pictures. I wish we could stop time...wish you well
