Happy Birthday to my Red-Head

I started my blog shortly over four years ago today- just a little more than a week before my little-red head turned two.

And now today she is 6!!

To my spunky larger than life daughter who:

-is rarely quiet- her big voice will be perfect for the theater someday

-laughs with her whole body- throwing her head back, mouth open wide

-can talk with a perfect British accent when she is being "girly and fancy"

-will run girls over on the soccer field without even meaning to

-loves it when I do her hair fancy-but would also happily go to school without me even brushing it

-now wears a size 1 1/2 shoe- who prefers her crocks as the girly shoes are too skinny for your feet

-is the leader of the pack and makes friends wherever you go

Yesterday I asked her some questions- which I will hopefully remember to ask again next year.

1. What is your favorite color? red violet
2. What is your favorite toy? my American Doll (a recent present from Grandma & Grandpa)
3. What is your favorite fruit? pears
4. What is your favorite tv show? "What's a TV show" -after I helped her know difference between movie and TV show "strawberry Shortcake"
5. What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch? hot dogs

11. What is your favorite book? "I love Trees"
12. Who is your best friend? Kilya (friend from school)
13. What is your favorite cereal? Cinnamon Toast Crunch
14. What is your favorite thing to do outside? swing

19. What do you want for dinner on your birthday? tortellini
20. What do you want to be when you grow up? doctor 

To my Miss Alex- though I may not always know what to do with you-- I will always love you and hope you always live life as big as you do.

We will be celebrating her birthday tonight with cake and presents.  Yesterday- before Lucas went to buy her present she had this advice for him:

 "Make sure you go to all the girl rows and whatever looks the boring-est to you, get that- as that will be a good girl thing I like."

Ah- my Miss Alex.

  4. Happy BIRTHDAY Alex! I can't believe she's 6!! Crazy! Her advice to Lucas is so funny and awesome. Cracked me up!

    What a cute and fun and darling wonderful girl! Love you Miss!

  5. Happy Birthday to her! Such a cutie! And that is MY favorite kind of cereal too. SO GOOD!!

  6. Sometimes her birthday can be a holiday....or at least really close! But that is very confusing to a six year old. I can't believe she is six already. Crazy stuff. Happy Birthday, Miss Alex!

  7. Oh my...that post made me feel Alexandria near...she is definitely closely tied up inside my heart. Love that precious little girl! Happy Birthday to a real gem!

  8. Happy Birthday Alex!! I love reading posts about her--she is so funny! I love the gift advice she gave Lucas. Smart girl.

  9. Happy Birthday to Miss Alex. I love the whole British Accent thing. We go around my house talking with one all the time... wonder what that's all about anyway :). I love that you asked her these questions, now you should every year so you can see how the answers change!

  10. Aw, Happy Birthday to her! I love the Q&A, it will be fun to see how much her answers change throughout the years.

  11. Happy Birthday to a sweet, sweet girl.

  12. Happy Birthday Miss Alex. Hope you had a truly fantabulous day and Lucas went to the all girl rows for the MOST boring thing! xxx

  13. ps Love the Q&A's! Such a great idea. WIll have to try that with my boys when they are old enough xx

  14. Her advice on buying her a present is adorable and genius!! Hope she gets the most boringest thing ever (in Lucas's mind). Love the holiday response too.

  15. Awe, I love her list's of favorites and let me tell ya, her and I could have some fun talking in an English Accent. My sister and I do it all the time with each other.

    Happy Birthday to your sweet 6 year old!

  16. So sweet! Happy Birthday to Miss Alex! "The All Girl Rows" LOVE IT! I'm going to give Jeremy that advice before he goes Christmas shopping ;)

  17. Happy birthday to Alex! She looks like such a beautiful, fun girl! I hope she had a great day.

  18. Happy birthday to your fiery redhead!
