Five brings with it a lot of changes in your life, some due to growing and changing and some due to circumstances beyond our control. Turning five means you handled the addition of your cousin to our home with graciousness and aplomb. (You can look those words up when you're Six).

Maya's first day of preschool
This year you started making two activities at school so you could bring one home for Dmitri so he wouldn't miss out and impressing your Pre-K teachers with your reading.

Festivus Nacho Libre
Your awesome personality has reached full bloom. You are funny, theatrical, loving, and friendly.

Super Hero Maya
You love wearing knitting and although your hands don't have the dexterity to do it yet, you regularly ask me for lessons. I bet this year will be your year.

Sad Nacho Libre
I love your style, your heart, and everything about you, even when you're mad or sad. Happy 5th Birthday to my big girl.
