Five years ago I held a tiny little baby in my arms, somewhat surprised that they let a clueless mother like me take her home from the birth center. Today, my baby is a big, important five year old and I'm somewhat less clueless, but still taking it moment by moment, stage by stage.
Happy birthday, darling Maia!
P.S. As you can see, I finally finished the birthday banner that I've been meaning to make since I first saw Amanda's in The Creative Family! I did the letters using freezer paper stencils, though, rather than applique. Maia's "5" shirt is appliqued.
