Darby is Six

Here is Darby in her snazzy new birthday shirt from Nana.

Darby has been waiting for May 24th, 2011 to come around for a long time. She has watched two siblings (and a mom) have birthdays this year and Darby was ready for her turn.

We open presents first thing in the morning before school. She ordered sausage and eggs for breakfast and we ordered pizza for dinner. Of course she had to have a hot lunch at school.

Her special treat request were yellow cupcakes with purple frosting that we brought to share with her class.

Darby got this new tent for her birthday and it held all her presents this morning. Now it is setup in her room where it will store all her stuffed animals. Darby loves her stuffed animals...almost as much as her blankets...almost as much as coloring...its a toss up.

Paisley now can't wait for her birthday because she was stealing Darby's presents every second she could and opening them herself. She also wanted to hold everything Darby got.

Darby was born right before the finale of American Idol where Carrie Underwood was the winner. So it always reminds me of Darby and when she was born.

Darby was my happiest baby. She was also my biggest baby, the baby with most hair, my only brown eyed girl and my only baby who would always let everyone hold her. Darby was also the earliest walker at 9 months and our only child to ever climb out of her crib (again and again and again). She was also the earliest potty trained and has always been a great helper and super affectionate.

We love her and I always tell her she is the leader of the girls in our family. don't worry, plenty more pictures to come from the famous May 24th!

That's so funny b/c I remember the American Idol top three when Audrey was born! (May 14th). I was literally between contractions saying, "who knows who got kicked off American Idol?" to the nurses.

Can't believe she is six!!! She was so little when we met you.
