It was my nieces 6th birthday this past weekend, and like myself, she was really sick. Unfortunately too sick to go to disneyland like we planned. She started her day off crying because she was sad that she was not going to be able to do anything. I quickly decided to bring the festivities home. Obviously I couldn't bring disneyland home, but I managed to make the best of it...
We painted faces, watched movies, baked her cake, played with her gifts, did some arts & crafts and ordered in from her favorite bbq eatery, Lucille's! All in all, she said it was one of the best birthdays she had so I am happy she was happy!
I still remember the day we rushed to the hospital waiting anxiously for her arrival. She and I have been inseparable since birth, and at times I feel like she is my own. She is indeed growing up too fast, and at times I wish she can still be that itty bitty baby once in my arms again. However, that's life. Each year comes around celebrating one more year of progression and memories. I am so grateful to be an aunt and to have the opportunity to watch this beautiful, intelligent, & charismatic young girl flourish into such a wonderful being.
Happy Birthday Alexis, I love you more than words could ever describe!!!
