her 5th birtday is coming up in a few days and i just have to say that the last 5 years has been the best in my life. a lot of fun times, unadulterated love, cute photos and healing. even while she was refusing to fall asleep, i reminded myself that the time i have with her is so precious. i just hope that me succumbing to her call for love when i know i should better, well, i just hope that all my extra love manifests in her being a well nourished adult.
