5 years old today!
Today is going to be a very exciting day! You are now 5 years old and we have a very special event planned for you.
We are hosting a special “tea party” birthday party for you and some of your friends from school; as well as your cousins from Alabama.
And for dinner, when we asked you where you would like go to out for your big day, you responded, “Acapulco Mexican restaurant because they have the good macaroni and cheese- and Jack likes their pizza.”
I know it’s going to be such a fun 5th birthday for you.
I love you, Holly!

Last night, we took Papa out for his birthday at Tito’s Mexican restaurant; the place in town that is subtly known for throwing whipped cream in your face if they find out it’s your birthday.
Plus, the food is really great!
I secretly signed to our waiter that it was Papa’s birthday… then waited for everyone to be finished eating, so that the wait staff would deliver the complimentary birthday sopapillas; along with the infamous whipped cream.
Unbeknownst to me, you were given to the responsibility of throwing the cream in Papa’s face.
You aimed for his mouth, but directly got his eye instead!

Now that Mommy turned 39 a couple of weeks ago, she and I are both the same age.
In addition to that, I discovered another coincidence in our ages:
For the next couple of weeks, you will be 9 years, 9 months old; as your sister is 4 years, 4 months old.
By the way, I love the realness of the photo I took of you and your sister on Mommy’s 39th birthday.
You made a big, loud deal out of singing Happy Birthday, as your sister impatiently yet quietly waited for the song to end so she could finally have some chocolate cake!
4 years old.
For your 4th birthday last weekend, we had a small party for you with family; only 10 people.
Until the COVID-19 lockdown, we had a big birthday planned for you at the park- there was going to be pony rides!
I guess we’ll be saving that plan for when you turn five next year.
But still, your 4th birthday party was very special because we got to spend it with your grandparents and cousins on my side of the family; at least.
A very special gift you received from your cousin Darla is a picture of the two of you together; which is now propped up on your night stand right next to your bed.
It means a lot to you, as the two of you are inseparable anytime you are both together!
4 years old today!
I have to say: You’ve been wanting to turn 4 years old for a long time now… I’d say for about a year, actually!
Your day has finally come: Today is your 4th birthday!
This is your COVID-19 birthday, but you will never remember that part of it- other than the fact that for some reason, both Mommy and Daddy stayed at home with you on that birthday.
It is obvious how I am so proud to be your Daddy. I am so glad that all of the little girls in the world, I get to have you, my little “Squeaky”, as my daughter.
I love you Holly!
