Rowan's 5th Birthday

It's hard to believe that our baby girl is already 5 years old...
it's all happening so fast...too fast for this Mama.


We didn't have the chance to give Rowan much of a birthday party this year (at least not one that was all her own).  Since we were moving that weekend and I was packing like a mad-woman just before, this prego just couldn't handle the thought of putting all that together.  We did manage to include her in a shared birthday party at Michelle's house that included her cousins and our best that worked out well.  And to be honest, I don't think she even noticed.  She was happy to blow out her candle when it was her turn for the song...and I think she actually did better this time at not being so shy.  

Happy Birthday time for Lorelei, Alivia, Rowan and Cort
It's Rowans turn to blow out the number 5
We also took the kids up to Chicago one Saturday so we could take Rowan to the American Girl Doll store for her big day.  My mom got her her very own American Girl doll for her birthday (which Rowan was so excited about) so we had to take her and the doll up to the store to pick out an outfit.
Our friends Liz and Jason came along too...their daughter Gretchen is only a few weeks younger than Row and she's one of her best buddies.

On our way to the big city!
I think we're just happy to be stuck in the car for an hour together :)

I can barely stand how cute she is...her and that stinkin' doll.
Doesn't the doll look just like her?  
LOVE this one
Rig went along too...
he enjoyed climbing all over the Chicago landscaping :)
I got Rowan a ballerina costume for her birthday...
Grandma Gora bought a matching one for her doll too
