July 10th 8:04 pm
After the first round of cake with Uncle DJ who shares my birthday, I got to stay up late on my birthday-eve so Mommy could put sponge rollers in my hair.

Its my last snuggle with my blanket. For months we’ve had a plan. When I turn 5, Im going to give up my blanket and stop sucking my thumb. And if I do, I get a special date with Mommy and Daddy to pick out my very own baby doll. I snuggle hard! Its knotted and stained and tattered and frayed…and very loved!

July 11th 6:26am
Its my Birthday and I tell everyone early! First things first. A present from Grandmoni that Ive been holding onto for a week. Ive carried it around everywhere waiting for this day and I didnt even peek!
7:11
I surrender my blanket.
Mommy might have cried. Just a bit.
I didnt.

8:03
We take my curlers out. I look gorgeous. All my sisters say so!

9:58
After breakfast fit for a queen, Mommy takes me and her camera out to snap my first five-year-old photos.

11:16
Its tea time. Is it too early for more birthday cake? I think not.

Im a two-lumps-of-sugar kind of tea drinker! Sometimes three.
We eat with our pinkies up and call eachother “darling“.
A girl can never have to many pretty bracelets, you know!

12:27
More presents. Tristan gives me one of his hard earned crisp dollar bills. Abi bought me something smelly with her own money at Bath & Bodyworks. Britain and Evie share half filled bottles of their favorite nail polish and lip gloss.
1:18
I take some time out of my busy morning for a pedicure.

2:00
Daddy is my chauffeur. He escorts us to the car. First stop, Starbucks. Daddy gets me a frappuccino.
With whipped cream of course!

2:34
We arrive at the doll hospital where I get to adopt a baby. Looking through the window, I see so many sweet babies needing a great mommy like me.

I know exactly what Im looking for and Daddy helps me find it. I wanted an Asian baby because I love India and China. I keep asking Daddy when he will take me there….someday!

Its a big job adopting a baby. I have to promise to love and take care of her. I help the nurse weigh her, measure her and listen to her heart.

And then I have to write my name with a pen….that has a plume of course!

4:03
The adoption is complete and Im a very happy little momma bringing my baby home from the hospital.
I decide to name her Rosabella.

She and baby Gigi are friends already.

4:38
One more stop before home. A cake shop where I choose a huge slice of coconut cream.
It was a pretty special date.
5 is looking like a promising year!
