Happy Birthday SweetCheeks!

I can't believe you are
Where has the time gone?
Where has my baby girl gone?
Where has my LIFE gone?

It seems like just yesterday
you were a tiny little thing.
You only weighed 5# 2oz when
you were born.
You were in the NICU for 15 days.
And then you came home so
we could love on you.
Your sweet Mama doted on you..
(Look at those Cheeks-
We loved you as we watched you grow-
Even when you were a hot mess.
You were so sweet even
as a tiny girl,
and funny,
and smart.
I love this picture of you with your two sisters

And you know that your
 Mom & Dad and Sisters
love you soooo much.
You LOVE Starbucks
with Nana.
I started you early on...
I know..I know..
Sad, isn't it?
And here you are our poor, poor
 little SweetCheeks as you got
snagged by a bush
after picking out a Christmas tree.
And you were quick to remind Santa
that you had
what you wanted for Christmas!
And then you started nursery school-
and your teacher said you were
very smart.
Pfffftt..we already KNEW that!
In many, many ways
you are an
Old Soul.
Wise beyond your years.

But today..
just today..
you can be our
Little Girl for
one more day
you only turn
Five Years Old

Happy Birthday
Little Princess!
We Love You!

Happy Birthday SweetCheeks. You don't look a day older than 4. I had forgotten about her getting stuck in the bush. That's going to follow her all her life!

A very Happy Birthday to SweetCheeks, I hope she has the best day. I read in one of your earlier post that she is actually a real princess kidnapped from England, well we want her back!

Happy birthday to Sweet Cheeks! Oh Nana, they grow up so fast, don't they! My Little Sweetheart turns 6 in three weeks. Like you, I'll be asking, where has the time gone?

Please give her my best wishes for a wonderful 5th birthday!

Miss Sweet Cheeks, I think 5 is the PERFECT age to be a princess, may you have an oh-so royal Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to Sweet Cheeks. What a funny little cheeky baby you were. You keep us alkl in stitches with your silliness. I hope your Mama doesn't plan your BD party in the forest. (Hah)

P.S. I see that your awesome Nana has you "Starbucks"-trained! lol

Hope Filled Living said...

Happy Birthday Sweetheart! You have the best Nana ever! She loves you soooooooooooo much.

Gypsy Heart said...

Beautifully written Nana! That age is just so very special...and I miss those young years with my grands. They're teens now and you almost have to make an appointment to see them with all their activities, friends, school, etc. But, that's life and the way it's supposed to be.

I hope her birthday is as special as she is!
