Today she turns five.
Oh how she was looking forward to this birthday. "Mama," she said, her eyes as wide as the moon. "I'm a really, really big girl now. I'm getting taller. I can reach the light in my bedroom. I can use kid scissors all by myself. And I'll be in KINDERGARTEN soon!!"
Yes, my darling. You are a big girl. But you'll always be my baby.
Here are some of my favorite snapshots of Izzy this past year...
|A slice of pepperoni at Blondie's Pizza in Berkeley.|
|Fashion prodigy's off-the-shoulder "sheet dress."|
|Channeling her inner-Martha Graham.|
|Enjoying an afternoon on the shores of Lake Erie.|
|She wants to know, "What does the fox say?"|
|Lady in red.|
|The girl is pure joy.|
Watching her grow up at 1, 2, 3 and 4.
