I can't believe that my baby girl is now 5 years old.
On Saturday 29th June, we had an early celebration with all of the family! We had a BBQ at nanna's house in the roasting hot sun & Felicity & Joel splashed around in the swimming pool ith their cousins & soaked each other with water guns! The family spoilt Felicity rotten with absolutely loads of coloring things & crafts.. she now has it coming out of her ears, but she couldn't be happier!
Then on Wednesday 3rd July, we celebrated Felicity's 5th birthday! She was in school all day so she took some big share sized bags of Maom to school with her to share with all of her class, which her teacher shared out with everyone at the end of the day & they all sang "Happy Birthday" to Felicity at carpet time!
She came out of school absolutely buzzing with excitement. When we got home, she had more presents to open & nanna & grandad came round for a cuppa & to give Felicity her present... the bike that she has been asking for months for! She spent around half an hour playing in the street with us all watching as she rode up & down with Joel & then we all went inside for more cups of tea & cake!
On yesterday, on Saturday 6th July, we celebrated Felicitys birthday again, but this time with all of her friends, & a bouncy castle in the garden... all Unicorn themed! My amazing friend Kerry travelled from Blackburn (which none of my friends have ever done before by the way) & she spent the day with us & her own children, along with Felicity's friends, celebrating her day! It was fantastic! Even if the bouncy castle did turn up at 7.30am!!! an amazing time was had by all & come 7.30pm when the bouncy castle was finally collected, I had two VERY tired children that had been bouncy since 8am when they got up! I always get nervous for parties at home but I think it's safe to say, I pulled it off without any problems!
It is safe to say that today has been a very quiet Sunday. We have all been a little exhausted from yesterdays celebrations & the last week entirely!Felicity even went for a nap this afternoon & that is an occurance you do not see very often, & then she spent the rest of the day cracking on with her crafting.. she opened her plate today that she xcould decorate with pens & loved every second! It was very enjoyabe watching her do something she was very excited about.
Having children is by far, the best thing I have ever done in my life.
