Myla was SO excited to turn FIVE on Friday!! She requested this year to just have family for her party, so that is what we did. Michael took off work on Friday, which was special for her because she loves for her Daddy to be home!
My newly made chalkboard made for a good birthday greeting for Myla when she woke up!
She started off the morning playing with a birthday card that Aunt Be sent her on the computer. You could “paint” a bunch of different pictures, and she loved doing it! Daddy also took her and Selah to get doughnuts, and they loved that! I didn’t take any other pictures during the day because we pretty much hung around the house until it was time to go eat with our families.
Our big 5 year old!!
Selah wanted in the picture too. In fact, I had to do a lot of coaxing to get her out of the picture so I could get one of Myla by herself!
Myla requested Mexican for dinner! Here is Selah with Sae Sae and Granddaddy.
Sis Sis and the birthday girl!
On the way to the restaurant, Michael and I explained to Myla that the waiters might try and put a big hat on her and sing happy birthday. She immediately starting worrying about it, but we told her it would be okay. Myla has a little anxiety when it comes to new things, so I was really glad we had talked to her before we went. When they came and put the hat on her, it took everything she had not to cry. Her face was so funny, but I felt sorry for her because I knew she was not liking the situation. Then, after they sang, the waiter tried to put some whipped cream on her nose, and I thought she might fall out of her seat backing away from him. Poor baby!
Feeling a little uncomfortable while they sang to her!
I tried to coax out a smile, but she just kept saying, “I want to take the hat off!”
After supper we came back home to open presents and have cake and ice cream. Of course, being 5, Myla thought opening presents was top on the priority list, so cake and ice cream would have to wait!

This is what I get when I ask her to smile!

Finally, the present opening commenced! Myla had more of a Christmas than a birthday when it came to presents! Wow…made me a little ready for my birthday. ha!
Mimi and Bodie got Myla a Pillow Pet Dream Lite, and she loved it!!
Sae Sae and Granddaddy got her a really neat dry erase board for school so she can practice her writing!
They also got her this slip ‘n slide!
Myla and I went into the Dollar Tree last week, and she saw these cash register drawers, and she has been asking for one ever since. She was so excited to get one! Of course, being the smart mom I am, I got two since I knew sister would be all over that!
Not only did Myla get lots of presents, Selah did too!
Selah also got a Dream Lite from Mimi and Bodie, and she loves it! It has made going to bed a little easier this weekend without the paci.
Then, after presents, it was time for cake!
Myla knew exactly what to do when we were finished singing “Happy Birthday”!

I truly cannot believe how quickly 5 years has flown by! We are so thankful for Myla, and she is such a blessing to us and those who love her!
