Lots of fun celebrating our brand new five-year-old! She requested sloppy joes with lots of pickles, chips, grapes, and cupcake cones. Her sisters organized all of the games for her (Mali's true calling in life!) and her friends all enjoyed the crafts too. In true Delaney-style, there was even an impromptu conga line. Happy birthday, sweet girl!

This has been a big year for her. She's now in preschool five mornings a week and rocking it. Well, she's doing great as soon as she fully wakes up. She's our biggest night owl and sleeps in as long as possible each morning, throwing a breakfast in her backpack on her way to school. But then she plays hard and is warmly greeted by the twins as soon as she returns home. I'm so spoiled to have 1:1 time with her while the twins nap and before she has quiet time. We read, do "homework", and anything else she dreams up. Her imagination is big and I love to see it in action. She loves word search puzzles (especially after bedtime), lazy breakfasts, owls, cowgirl boots, fashion, the color blue, and her cousin Julia. She dreams of a world without cheese, soup, eggs, screen time rules, or spiders but still manages to cope with those drawbacks. Her personality is a delight to the whole family, even though she somehow hit the teenage years a decade too early. We are so thankful that God placed her with us. Delaney Fay, thanks for the burst of joy you are. My best belated birthday gift ever!
