However you want to say it, today my baby girl is turning 5.
When Brian and I decided to have children there was no way I could have known the twists and turns our lives were about to take.
God has blessed us with an amazing daughter. She has spunk, personality, stubbornness, a tender heart as well as so many other qualities I couldn't even begin to explain.
She has changed so much in the last five years. This year will bring all sorts of new things as well. She will start kindgergarten in the fall, cue the mom tears. She is going to continue her Karate lessons and she is doing amazing at Awana. She loves memorizing her Bible verses and I can always see the wheels turning in her brain as she processes them.
Being a mom has challenged me in so many ways I never could have expected but being able to say this amazing girl is my daughter makes it all worth it!
Happy Fifth Birthday Lauren!
