M Turned Six!

Our baby girl turned six back in December! She had a great birthday, too, thanks to my dad, stepmom, and sister. Her birthday was the same weekend as the SEC Championship Game, so it was a dual purpose trip to Atlanta. She'd been obsessed with Legos this year, so we knew another trip to Legoland Discovery Center would be a perfect birthday treat! (Though this was my first time at a Legoland, my dad and stepmom took M a couple of years ago.) 

M w/her "cousins" from my stepmom's side of the family.

My dad with his two grandbabies. Dad has ALWAYS insisted on taking pictures, and I could not have been more grateful of him being the same way this day.

We have similar pictures from their last Lego trip.

I remember being a bit rushed trying to get back to Alabama because DK had basketball practice. But Dad promised M a cake for her birthday, and he wasn't going to let us leave without them going to the store to get one. For that I am so grateful.  They went to the store and he let her pick one out. They came back and we sang Happy Birthday to our big girl. 

I am so grateful to my dad, stepmom, and sister for showing M a great sixth birthday. I'm so glad she was able to spend it with her Big Daddy, a memory she can hold onto forever. The memory of this weekend alone has helped me get through a lot of the grief of losing my dad.

This was shortly after we got home. She played with her brand new Alabama Cheerleader Barbie all the way home. We love our sweet six year old! Time, please slow down!
