Right now, one of Chickadee’s favorite things to do is pretend to be me.
What does that look like, you ask?
Yes, she has a toy laptop, and she is pretending to blog. She also likes to pretend to take pictures of everything. So, basically, she has me figured out!
Today is a beautiful spring day (finally!) so we spent the morning at the Missouri Botanical Garden. Chickadee was so happy to get out and see the flowers!
We don’t need tickets to the Cardinals home opener at Busch Stadium for Chickadee to be excited about Opening Day!
I pray your family’s Easter is as blessed as ours has been!
Exactly six years ago today, Chickadee became a member of God’s family through the Sacrament of Baptism, and Turkey and Bunny were confirmed and received the Sacrament of the Altar for the first time. That year, April 1 was Palm Sunday, which was exciting, but it’s even more exciting to celebrate those anniversaries today on Easter Sunday!
Chickadee is still learning how to read, but even without knowing all the words, she’s gotten really good at following along in the bulletin at church, like she did tonight for the Maundy Thursday service (don’t worry…I took the picture well before church started, while her older siblings were warming up with their choir!):
And a bonus picture from our visit to Rural King earlier this week…Chickadee got to hold a bunny!
For the first time, Chickadee’s birthday is on the same day of the week on which she was born! It was a very fun day!!! We started bright and early, before Moose left for school, with the opening of presents.
Since it’s a Thursday and her birthday, she really wanted a picture with Dolly:
We did a lot of her favorite things today. We watched Mister Rogers Neighborhood and Sailor Moon (six episodes because she is six). She built her new Lego set (with a little help) and played with her new toys. There were even a few games of Candy-land. For dinner, she picked Mac ‘n’ Cheese. I’ve made birthday cupcakes for the last few years, but this year, Chickadee decided she wanted an elephant cake, just like she had for her first birthday:
It was a fun, busy, and exciting day. I still can’t quite believe that she’s six years old already, but I’m very proud of the sweet little girl she is!
