.Six Years Old.
Happy Birthday Carly! I find it hard to believe that you are six today, and that you are heading into Grade One in a couple of weeks. Where did those years go my dear? They went by way too quickly. Especially when you are the third born!
You were my first baby to be born in a different town, different hospital than your brother and sister, and a different doctor. We had MANY people in the delivery room waiting for you to be born. Mommy, Daddy, Pappa, Nanny, Nonna, Aunty April, Aunty Amy, Aunty Kim and cousin Nicole. Plus all of the staff and of course our doctor. You were fabulous easy labour and birth, and you continue to be this way! I remember smiling and laughing throughout my labour with you. The nursing staff were talking about me at the desk. You were the first labour to give me contractions (very mild) FIRST, and a tiny water leak. Born on your brother Cameron's original due date. We thought that was neat. You are our second summer baby :D
The day before I said as I rubbed my belly, I wish you would be born tomorrow! And you listened, and you gave me a great birthing experience. You used to bounce around in my belly when we watched 'American Idol' and today you have a beautiful singing voice. We love how you sing!
You were supposed to be our 'last' baby, but of course you are not. But you are a fabulous big sister, to your sisters and you are very complimentary. We love that you are kind to others, your 'Carly hugs' are amazing and we love your big brown eyes, and your cheerful smile. You bring joy to so many of us. I love the way you my 'Carlyflower' pick me flowers still, and you even get the vase out fill it up and bring them to me.
You ask brilliant questions, you stand your ground, you live your life with gusto! Something we all can learn from you.
Six years Carly my dear. They have been six of the most wonderful! Life became more beautiful the day you were born.
We love you Carly. Happy birthday honey.
