Happy 6th Birthday

This year Addi wanted a poop emoji themed birthday party. I was so surprised that she wanted that, and I also thought it was hilarious. I tried searching for anything that had poop emoji on it but either I couldn’t find anything we liked or there wasn’t much to choose from. I also didn’t want an explosion of poop emoji things everywhere. So we kept it to the bare minimum and got a poop emoji pool float and some party favors. Oh yea, we rented a huge double water slide that was a hit for all the kids. Addi invited her closest friends and had the most amazing time. 

Her favorite color is purple so of course we added a few purple details. Her favorite, cheese pizza was on the menu with watermelon on the side and tons of sweet treats. Her party this year was so low key and quick and I kind of like the idea of something simple and quick. Until next year, Can’t wait too see what Addi decides for it.

6 Going on 16

"Today we celebrate your life. S I X whole years of your sweet tiny self. Thank you for being our light. If I knew how much joy you would bring us I would turn back time and had you sooner. I wish you could see your self through our eyes, only then you would know how special you are to us. We love you Addi girl. I hope you have the best time today celebrating with friends. Happy almost birthday.” - Tutus & Heels 

This August was probably one of the most emotional ones yet. Addi starts First grade, she turned 6, and officially has a loose front tooth. I mean, can anything else be thrown my way. My baby, my first born is not so much of a baby any more. She’s out of her toddler years and a full blown girl. We are so excited to celebrate her this weekend.

First Grade or Bust

Addi is beyond thrilled to be starting school again as a first grader. We did some back to school shopping this past week and I am so jealous, I wish I was getting a whole bunch of new clothes and shoes. I know that she will do great this year and I am so excited to see all the new things she will learn this year. As for me and Emmi, we will have to learn to survive at home without Addi. It will feel weird just having one child at home.
