It was a crisp, sunny Sunday morning, much like today, that Elizabeth came into this world. It's hard to believe it's been six years. As I look back at our photos, I'll admit that it's hard to remember life BT (Before Triplets.) But when I look at her at 4, it feels like that's her natural age to be, and I imagine I'll still be looking at her when she's 16 thinking, Aren't you still four years old?
But let's not get ahead of ourselves. All adolescent behavior aside, she's still got a while before we reach that point. Let's take a moment to remember Elizabeth, one year at a time:
2008. Hello, world!
|She was a doll from the get-go.|
|Her swing obsession had an early start.|
|We all started taking what comfort we could from food.|
|She finally got hair and her own birthday party.|
|I hope she never stops climbing.|
|By now she knows what birthdays are all about and this time it was all about Burger King.|
2014: Six Years Old!
Elizabeth has been planning her birthday for months. She wanted a "Frozen Party," (which only family attended, but we did have goodie bags!) a trip to Chuck-E-Cheese's, and to go apple picking. Not ambitious at all, right?
It was our first trip ever to the Chuck Man's and I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was. Twenty bucks for enough tokens for the kids to play games for a good two hours. Not bad at all.
|I think she only wanted to go to get redemption prizes.|
We'd been meaning to go apple picking since fall began, but this was the first Saturday with cooperative weather and no other big plans. We went up to Penning's Orchard in Warwick, NY. The best part for Adam and me was the drive through all the fall foliage. It was stunning.
|We picked out some pumpkins, too.|
We love you, Elizabeth. Happy 6th birthday!
