Dylan will be five on June 19. FIVE! As usual, I feel like lamenting the passage of time, but I’ll spare you the details today. Instead let me tell you about my wonderful daughter.

She loves animals, people and nature. She loves her little sister. She loves all of her grandparents. And she loves her dog, Zoey.

She has crazy dreams and likes to share them in the middle of the night.

Playing pirates and knights is a favorite pastime. And she can wield a sword while riding a stick horse better than a few of the riders at Medieval Times. She has a passion for anything horse related.

She is a true dare-devil. The first time she rode a tricycle, at 18 months old, she didn’t think sitting on the seat was enough fun so she stood on the seat with one foot while putting the other as high in the air as she could. She wants to swing higher, spin faster and needs the adrenaline rush. She screams for her Dad to “Go Faster” on the quad.

She can’t stand bad breath or any sort of bodily function. Being anywhere nearby while I change her sister’s dirty diaper makes her gag.

She loves to make crafts, paint and color. She is always running out of glue and losing her scissors.

She likes to make silly faces during dinner and after dinner she and Hayden put on a “show” for us every night. She loves to dress up in costumes.

She makes me proud because she is kind and considerate. She remembers her manners and feels bad when her friends call one another names. She doesn't like to make “bad choices” and really drives the point home when she tells you not to throw something away because it is “special to her heart.”

She is a very special little girl. Very loved and very loving. Happy birthday Dylan!

Oh Happy Birthday Dylan! What a wonderful, loving tribute Kathy. Print it out right now and put it in her scrapbook. She'll love to know how you share your pride of her with others.
