Yes… my baby is FIVE, count em’ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 years old this month! I can hardly believe it myself. She is a full fledged grade schooler in Kindergarten and everything. She says things like ” Whatever” which I REALLY hope she learned at school an not from me (I would just die if I heard that come out of my mouth at my age ~ LOL!) My favorite is when she said” “You’re ruining my life” I thought I would never recover from that one. But she also melts my heart when she says things like “mama, you are the best mama” and “mama, you’re so pretty” and when she composes her own songs in the back seat while we are driving ~ she might be a pop star someday! She has been an absolute dream since the day she was born. After countless miscarriages and trips to the doctors we thought we’d NEVER be parents, but after about two years of heartache we were given our miracle Hallebear. I always joke that her strong personality wouldn’t have taken no for an answer, she was bound and determined to make it here and I am just SOOOOO glad that she did ~ I couldn’t possibly have imagined having any other baby girl. So I thought it would be fun to take a look back on her first five years. I could spend weeks going through pictures, but I can’t wait that long, so here goes…
Now, I know I have said that Halle was quite the chunker, but I’m not sure that does justice to the scale of her chunkiness…

Now here is my baby 5 years later:
I HAD to add this pic of her cake ~ She had been drawing pictures of a birthday cake for weeks and they were always three or four tiers so I decided to actually get her a super fun cake. The designer of this AWESOME cake is April Goff. You GOTTA check out her cakes and get one, get two, you will not be sorry:) Halle loved it ~ it was a show stopper an delicious to boot!!!
Also a HUGE thank you to Rebecca Propes of for designing and making such perfect decorations for my little princess. If I can pry her name banner from her hands for two seconds I will get a pic posted for everyone to see how adorable it is. Thank you, thank you , thank you!
