Five years ago this day, on a beautiful day in Vancouver, we welcomed a little girl into the world. Every day that’s passed since then has been very full… and has gone by really quickly.
The thing I’ll remember most about this birthday is that, like this last Christmas, it’s really the first one she looked forward to and dreamt about and kept asking us when it was. So, appropriately enough, we planned a multi-part day.
First, we had a nice breakfast with family and opened presents afterwards.
Then, Abbey “opened” one of her big presents- a trip to the Seattle Aquarium- by taking her cousins with her to visit.
Then Cyn & I took her to her first movie in a movie theater. Abbey, who really loves stories, really took to it.
