unicorn six

A couple weeks ago our neighbor was having a garage sale and my girls enjoyed walking over there to *shop*. They picked up a couple of things, but the littlest was quite sad because her sisters wouldn't let her buy a unicorn costume because they told her she had to save her money for a Father's Day gift. Little did she know that one of her sisters sneaked back over to the sale and spent a dollar on the costume for her littlest sister's birthday.

The unwrapping happened yesterday morning and she was excited to become an unicorn for a few moments.

Goodness but I love those little cheeks!

Kiss! Kiss!

Her actual birthday is today, however yesterday the girls had a travel day as their oldest sister took them back home with her after the weekend which is why we had the early present opening.

SIX! The time is passing much too quickly!

I'm guessing there's probably a term for the emotions about the youngest that come upon a mom who is raising a large family. A phrase or word for the longing in your heart that you'd like them to stay little a little longer. You've watched all the others grow up so so quickly and there's a sense that it would be nice to freeze time for a bit so you can soak up this wonderful age.

SIX! For everything there is a season....I'm going to enjoy it while it's here!
