Has It Really 5 Been Years?

Dear Charlotte and Addison,

I hope you weren't disappointed this morning when you woke up and realized that you weren't actually 'a lot' bigger than you were yesterday when you went to sleep. Not sure what gave you the idea that turning 5 turns you into a 'big' girl. Apparently using scissors is allowed at 5 years old and you think you need to wear make up when you go to a birthday party.
All of this behavior is unacceptable to your mommy and daddy. You are still our little girls. You are to stop growing, never use scissors, and definitely not wear makeup ever.

Sincerely, Mommy and Daddy

How can you possibly be 5?
I surely don't feel 5 years older.
And I certainly don't look 5 years older.
This has been the fastest 5 years of my life.
I'd freeze you right now if I could.

Some of my favorite things about you two right now...

You would wear a dress everyday if we let you
You are loving school and love your friends from school
You use 'seriously/serious' a lot and it makes me smile
You can write your name all by your self,
and people can actually read it
You LOVE your cousins to pieces
You praise my cooking almost every dinner,
I love cooking for you
You love to say Grace at dinner and you have the
most sincere blessings, makes my heart melt
You still want to dress the same
You love to dress up in my shoes and clothes
You ask to go to the mall to just walk around and look at things
Sushi is your favorite food
But Charlotte also favors corn dogs
and Addison chow mein and panda bear (orange) chicken
You love pretend cell phones and have VERY in depth
conversations with friends on them
You like telling everyone what your mommy and daddy do for work
You are obsessed with having long hair,
I swear you'd measure it if you could
You love having your nails painted
You love playing tball
but I think you would like to wear a tutu over you uniform
Daddy is teaching you to break dance and you are both naturals

I still cannot believe that you are mine some days.
I very so lucky to have been given the chance to be your mommy.
You are my biggest accomplishment.
You make so many people smile everyday.
Your giggles alone quite possibly could start world peace.

Happy Happy birthday my sweet baby girls.

I can't believe I missed their birthday, and that they are five. Where did the time go? Seriously?
