Look Who Is Turning 5?

This sweet girl is!

My niece, MaKenzi is five years old today. I can't believe how big she is getting. Just thinking about it makes me cry and she isn't even my own kid,  haha!

It seems like just yesterday I received that phone call from my mom telling me to open my email. When I  opened my email and found this adorable picture, all I could do was cry because I was so excited and she was so beautiful.

Unfortunately for me, I was stuck at school for another week and was not able to race home to see this precious little girl. But, when I did finally get to go home, I didn't even stop at home first, I went straight to where my brother and sister-in-law were living so that I could finally hold her.

My brother with MaKenzi only a few weeks
after she was born.
Over the years, I have watched her grow up into this amazing little girl who is so smart and just loves life and everything about it. She became a sister before she was even two and it was so cool to see how she instantly knew that the new baby was part of her family. I think she thought that it was her new baby to play with, which is probably why my sister-in-law caught her trying to paint her sisters toe nails when she was only a few weeks old, haha! 

I have enjoyed watching this adorably sweet little girl grow up over the past five years. I can't imagine not having her in our lives and in our family. And now she is in preschool and learning more and more every day and I couldn't be more proud of her. She is so smart and she loves to learn about anything and everything that she possibly can. She can instantly brighten your day with her smile and she can always make you laugh. I hope that when I have kids, that they are like her, always a joy to have around.

Happy Birthday MaKenzi! Aunt Megan & Uncle Aran love you very much and wish you the best on your special day!


P.S. I also want to wish a very Happy Birthday to my step dad Brad whose Birthday is also today! Happy Birthday Brad!
