Peanut is 6 Years Old!

This morning at 4:15 a.m. while we slept soundly something monumental happened.  Peanut went from being a little 5 year old girl to a big 6 year old kid.  She thinks that maybe her toes grew when she went from 5 to 6...big kid toes.  Six just sounds so big.  How did she become a big 6 year old kid?  Wasn't she just a teeny tiny 6 lb. 11 oz. and 19 inch baby that took her time getting here just yesterday?  (Thirty-six hour labor to be exact, but who is keeping track?)  Although LONG her labor and delivery were amazing full of memories that I cherish.  These past six years are even more cherished as she grows into this big kid self.  We are so proud of her and love her more and more everyday.  God really did bless us when He chose us to be this lovely girl's parents.
