Hi, Five

Beatrix Violet, sixth baby, second girl, force of nature, lover of foxes and owls and purple, singer of songs, mixer of cakes, creator of Golden, princess of castles, Hello Kitty’s bff, Little Big Planet whiz, is 5 today.

Her last 5 years, in review:

Beatrix's first birthday, the aftermath

Bea Birthday #1 with big bros Tommy and Sam

Birthday #2 and quite contrary

She had a blast that day...

Smile. She's 3!

Wheee! Threee!

Finally four!

...A girly-girl who isn't afraid of dirty-dirt...

I wrote about her dramatic entrance into the world here.

Happy Birthday to Beatrix.

    My second daughter was also born on September 8. (Though, she was number 2 – she now has another 2 sisters and 2 brothers). We celebrated her 13th birthday with a huge costume party. Happy birthday Beatrix.
