it's obvious how devan got the nickname cheeks.
she's got squishy ones.
well, this little thang finally crossed the threshold into
full-blown, true blue, no turning back, little girl-hood.
why is five so much older than four?
so much bigger, and smarter, and spunkier, and totally not a baby anymore-er?
i dont' know, but it is.
devan had been counting down the days until she'd turn five.
and then she did.
cheeks and turtle man keepin it real.
turtle man looks a little possessive with cheeks' present.
i'm not sure exactly what she is smiling at, but that smile cracks me up.
it looks a little pyromaniacish to me.
or maybe she was thinking about her wish.
this one says, "i love you, number five candle. i've waited so long for you."
leave it to nik to bunnyear-bomb a photo
devan's self "portrait" bares a striking resemblance...
especially in the hair department.
this girl is kooky.
the most random and dramatic things come flying out of her mouth on a daily basis.
on an hourly basis.
and she is so so sweet and loving,
even if she does throw a mean eye roll or "duh" face around every once in a while. (or more)
her first day of preschool was another much anticipated day.
and it did NOT disappoint.
what a sweetheart.
happy birthday, devan. we love you!
you've made the past five years amazing.
