...wow! Our little princess is 6. That is so hard to believe, when I can remember the day she was born, like it was yesterday. Will it always feel like that?
Darling Emily....now you are 6. You are in Gr R at Saints, and just thriving. You love your teacher, your school, your friends, your uniform, your daily routine...you bounce out of bed in the mornings, and genuinely seem dissapointed when its weekend and there is no school! (Long may that last)
You are as active as ever with your extra murals, doing ballet, gymnastics, tennis, swimming and hockey. Lately, gymnastics seems to be your main obsession, and you cannot walk 2 steps without doing a cartwheel. You will be doing your 1st ballet exam at the end of this month. So exciting for you. You will also play your 1st hockey tournament in 2 weeks time....secretly, I'm just hoping that you escape without getting a stick in your face ;) . You just love to be a busy little bee and relish all these sports that you play.
You are having your party at the Johannesburg zoo. It is still your dream to one day be a vet. Your love for animals is a joy to watch. You love your Sandie dog and your kitties, and would even hug a snake if given the opportunity!
Your main birthday present this year was a Leappad explorer, and you love it! You love to do art and be creative. You make crowns out of tinfoil, cottonwool and paper and proudly display them on your head. You can sit for hours and create beautiful things out of nothing. Such imagination is a joy to behold. You do not have much time for tv and films, losing interest after about 30 minutes and moving on to do something more active.
You are such a confident, happy little girl and you bring your family so much joy. And laughter. Lots of laughter! You are quite a legend on facebook, as Mummy shares some of your funny quotes and antics! Just yesterday you declared "well - this is definately the best 6th birthday that I've ever had!"
Happy, happy, happy birthday our beautiful 6 year old! Wishing you 100 more happy and healthy birthdays. Love you to the moon and back our Emmy-moo. x x x
