Brooklyn. Soon to be Birthday Girl.

During her first week.

A couple days before her 1st birthday

Turning 2!

Her 3rd birthday. The day before we moved to Texas.

Turning 4. Everything was about My Little Ponies back then.

My big girl, 5 years old!

I actually cried quite a bit going through her baby, toddler, and preschooler pictures last night. I have loved watching her grow up and she’s changed so much and I LOVE this age she’s at but my gosh, I’ll never hold my baby Brooklyn again, I’ll never lay in bed with her while she nurses, stroking her hair in the dark. I’ll never hear her adorable little baby voice with her baby phrases and silly faces.
I just can’t believe that’s all over. There’s something about your first baby completely exiting that baby, toddler, preschool phase that makes it too real. I’ll never get that time back.

I really love this girl.

A little bit about Brooklyn as she turns 6..
She’s a beautiful girl, isn’t she? A beautiful little girl with a huge heart and an intense love for life. She brings excitement and drama to every situation, she laughs easily and loudly. She is adventurous and curious and determined. She loves her family with her whole heart.
She is mischevious, impatient, impulsive, and gets easily riled up.
She needs to talk through her feelings. She needs lots of cuddles and eye contact. She needs lots of attention.
She is alert and always ready for the next thing. She gets excited over the littlest things, this is good and bad. lol
She is really smart. She learns quickly. She needs a lot of encouragement in everything she does. Though everyone looks at her and her behavior and wouldn’t guess it, she tends to be very insecure. She needs a lot of positive feedback. When she gets this feedback you can see the fulfillment on her face, her eyes will be lit up and she is the sweetest, happiest child you’ve ever seen.

She’s a perfect Brooklyn. I can’t imagine her any other way. I’m so thankful she’s in my life, bringing joy and love and excitement, and challenging me in ways I never thought I’d be able to handle.

She’s a very special person and I’m so excited to celebrate her coming into our family 6 years ago 🙂

  • Ahhhhh. now I am crying! Same thing to be said about having a grandbaby for the first time. There is a special bond that no one can tell you about. You CAN love kids other than your own just as much…they are called GRANDKIDS!

  • Awww, this is a sweet post. It does go so quickly, and I agree with everything you said about your first baby. I have many of the same sad, too sad feelings about my Chaylee growing up. Somedays I don't think I will be able to stand it.

    I still need to do Chaylee's birthday post. The pictures are being held captive on a camera I can't find the cord for. Happy birthday to Brooklyn. She's still adorable, even at six!

  • I started reading your blog around the time Brooklyn turned four. I remember looking at those pictures from her birthday party…doesn't seem like it was that long ago!

    Gosh, six is a huge leap isn't it? Six is like an official “big kid”. It's hard to swallow, I know…Brooklyn is such a gorgeous girl, and you're a lucky mommy to have her. :c)

    I hope she has an amazing birthday. Give her a birthday hug from us!!
