Wow, this was a while ago and so much has happened since! Mylie had a wonderful sixth birthday and I tried to make it special for her. For me though, it was a miserable day. I was so sick, which made it a bummer. Also, Nora was developing a huge lump in her girl parts that would be the start of a long journey for her. (Long story short she had an Anal Fistula (a leaking anus) that created a series of infected abscesses in her labia. Once diagnosed, she eventually had surgery and then a terrible road to recovery.)
But anyways! Back to Mylie! She is the sweetest little girl. She is so creative and imaginative. She is always making and creating things for others. She LOVES school, playing, dancing, singing, and all things girly!
Before school, she got to open a gift. She had an excited audience:
Nora was darling as usual sporting her heart sweater.
Chocolate and Strawberries! Mmmmm! Too bad I was too sick to enjoy any of it. I toughed it out to make all of it, but didn't eat even ONE chocolate covered strawberry. Can you believe that? I can't.
All of my babies went through it. We would get them all ready for bed, swaddled up, binky in, place them in the cradle, and there they would be wide-eyed as if wondering what in the world we were thinking! Night time is play time, right? So when I came across Nora's picture in the cradle, I was pretty sure I had taken one of all of my kids in the same state. I almost had one of all of them, but sweet little Coy was my good boy who was sleeping. I don't remember for sure, but I'm pretty sure he didn't have his days and nights mixed up too badly. Nora was probably my worst one. It took FOREVER to convince her that 8 PM was bedtime. She liked to stay up 'til between 11:00 and midnight, then be up again for an hour or two at around 4 AM. Glad she has it all pretty much figured out now!
I've been married to Russell for 12 years. We've been blessed with four beautiful children! I absolutely love being a mom and spending time with my family every day. I take way too many pictures because time just goes by way too fast and I love capturing all those special, fleeting moments!
