Mylie~Five Years Old!

I am really needing to get caught up on here! Mylie turned five almost a month and a half ago on Valentine's Day! It was such a fun and girly day. We had a cute "Princess Valentine's Party" with some little friends, then had family over at night! Mylie was a beautiful Princess Belle for her party.

At five years old, Mylie continues to be our singing, dancing, imaginitive, and happy little princess! She is loving preschool and cannot wait until Kindergarten starts!  She is learning to read very well, and is working on passing off her first grade reading level in preschool. She can play and imagine for hours, and spends most of her time singing songs...whether they are princess songs, barbie movie songs, or just made-up songs. She loves taking dance, is getting very flexible, and is catching on to it really well. She loves wearing tights and wants to pretty much wear a dress or skirt every day.

At her 5-year old/Kindergarten check up, she was so brave for her shots, and didn't cry or even act scared. (Thank you Daniel Tiger; she remembered to "close her eyes, and think of something happy.") And I wasn't surprised at all to find out that she is in the "underweight" category of children her same age and height. She was an average height and a whopping 29 pounds at her checkup, having a BMI of barely 12. (Beside's her birth weight, she has never even been on the charts for her weight.) And since we are now seeing a new pediatrician who is not familiar with Mylie's history, she was a little unhappy with her stats...We are now trying to "power pack" and since then she has gained about 1.5 pounds, give or take and depending on the day. Problem is, the girl never holds still so I think she burns off every little extra calorie I get in her! And she doesn't really like the whole milk (yuck, who can blame her?)

Mylie chose an Aurora cake this year, now her favorite princess over Snow White from last year. (Snow White is still a close second).

Next, here are some pictures from her cute little princess party. She really has such darling little friends. I didn't get a picture, but she did make me dress up like a princess too. I was stunning in my junior prom dress. (Yea! At least it still fits...although I couldn't breath as well as well as before, I'm pretty sure having three kids has expanded my rib cage.)

Coy was so cute trying to keep up with the princesses. My neighbor was so nice and let me borrow her real little tea sets. The girls had fun filling and refilling their little cups with pink crystal light.

One of the games we played at the party was Pin the Kiss on the Frog.

Then Mylie got all ready for her party at night with her family to enjoy more little sandwiches and finger foods! We also got to cut into her cake and enjoy it in all its pink goodness.

She got a lot of wear out of that crown!  photo FP2_zps8da22ec4.jpg  photo FP1_zps54e1479b.jpg  photo FP5_zps3b778594.jpg  photo FP4_zps23331cef.jpg  photo FP3_zpsa54f0db1.jpg

What a cute party. All those little girls looked so cute in their dresses (and I'm sure you did too!) She is growing up so fast. What a doll.
