Nixon Grace turned 5 on
the 15th of December.
5 years! Wow! I remember holding
her in my arms, as I am now
holding Lottie, like it was yesterday.
She has turned into a sweet
precious little girl.
Nixon is a wonderful big sister.
I know that's what all
moms say about their
oldest but I really mean it!
Isla is her best friend.
They come home from MDO and
play barbies, school, or
"fashion girl" for hours everyday.
I am told when I am not around
she takes care of Isla, making sure
no one messes with her
and she doesn't get scared.
Roman adores Nixon.
Isla and Roman fight like cats and
dogs but not Nix and Roman.
No matter if he hits, bites or takes
her toys she always remains calm
and like a mother corrects him.
She gets so excited when he says a new word.
She loves her baby brother!
And of course she is a HUGE
helper when it comes to Lottie.
She likes helping with diaper changes,
picking out her clothes, and
bringing her toys to play with.
She is always wanting to
hold Lottie like a baby doll.
I love it when I often hear her say,
"I have the best family ever!"
But because December was such
a crazy month and we did not know
when Lottie would make her grand
entrance, we decided to have her
birthday party in January.
(which has now been moved to February)
We woke up on her birthday to
find that Casey the Elf had
hung balloons and streamers around
the house to celebrate her birthday!
She was excited to blow out her
candles and get a prize at school!
She specifically asked
to have pink and purple
cupcakes and icecream brought
to school to share with her friends.
She opened up her gifts
as soon as she got home!
Nina bought her some cool Moxie Girls!
She got a Barbie camper
from mommy and daddy!
Isla picked out a special gift for her...
Barbie camper sister and tent!
She showed off her new toys to Lottie!
That night we took her
to Ezell's to eat her favorite food...
shrimp and sweet tea!!
Her best friend Libby came to celebrate!
We had a great day celebrating
the birth of our big girl!
She has added so much happiness and
laughter to our life these past 5 years!
We have also listened to her as
she has planned her Rapunzel Sleepover
Party she is going to have since the moment we were
leaving the parking lot of her Pinkalicious Party last year!
Needless to say the girl loves to party!
