Happy 5th birthday Dalton!!!!

Happy Birthday Dalton!!!! While in labor a little over 5 years ago I literally thought I was going to D-I-E! We made it to the North Monroe hospital from Crossett in less than 20 minutes....( this should be an hour trip!) My little 5 year old Avery was BIG EYED in the back seat in the middle of Lee's truck... never saying a word about me squirming in the seat and getting on to Lee about how fast he was driving... The FAST did not bother me... what got me was that when he would hit 100 mph the governor (I am not sure on the correct spelling on this!?!?!) on the truck would shut the truck down.. I KNEW that if that truck died and we got stranded on the side of the road then I would have my 2nd born in the truck on the side of the FREAKING ROAD! Ok.. now with that being said... we made it and 15 minutes after getting to the hospital WITHOUT PAIN MEDICINE I had my second born! Note to self.... DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE... Can you say PAINFUL!!!?!? And let me just say.. The NERVE of that nurse to offer me a Tylenol (I just have to say HA!) for the pain after it was all over. I should have just slapped her.... Never would I have dreamed that I would be the mother of 2 of the sweetest girls. Today Dalton woke up in the best mood because I LET HER turn 5.. then within a few hours of getting up she was actually growing... She had the hiccups and she was SO excited about it! For those of you that don't know her she is very small... like she has a bathing suit that is an 18 month old and she can wear it! LOL
She is so small and sweet.

She is so shy, but if you talk to her softly and keep your distance you have a friend/shadow in no time...(right Grammy!?!?!)

She loves to dress her self... SEVERAL times a day..

She loves a ponytail ONLY like a ballerina (thanks to Mrs. Lauren)

She loves a daddy's Coke.

She loves THE Mexican place.

She loves her blanket ( not like Rachel Draper loves hers, but she does like to sleep with it) S

She loves to sneak in our bed.

She loves our big tub.

She loves her purses.

She love to carry roughly $10 worth of change (mostly pennies) in her purse.. just ask anyone at the ball park that she got to HOLD her purse!

She loves her 15ish cell phones.

She wants a pink razor when she grows up.

She always hollers YELLOW CAR when she sees one.

She wants to be a mommy when she grows up.

She LOVES Jenna Dumas (Avery's friends older sister)

She tucks her shirt in and puts on her REALLY SHINNY RODEO belt (LIKE AUNT ROSIA)

She loves her tractors.

She loves horses.

She has braces on her teeth ALOT... yes, it is gum spread over her teeth, but at least she can take them off! LOL

She loves to go with her daddy because she knows she gets to go to the store and get chips!!

She LOVES papaw Robert... GOTTA sleep with him when we go to visit!

If she gets to get a little something at the check out at WM then she ALWAYS asks to get something for Avery.

and she LOVES deodorant .... YES, deodorant! Actually, she got a new thing for her birthday this morning and she was SO thrilled!

Happy birthday Dalton... I can't believe that my baby is 5. Now I can say that I have a 5 year old, and a 10 year old!! We have come a very long way!

Happy b-day!! She is my favorite but don't tell Avery. I just tend to be drawn to the little ones who talk funny and have huge personalities even when they don't shine through but once in a blue moon. Cause when they speak it's something worth stopping to listen to!! It makes me smile.

I's taking Bryce home today - his mommy really misses him.

I sure do love Dalton! And I remember hearing all about your birthing...when I was 8 month preg with Rachel...hoping that wouldn't happen to me! Tylenol...that's funny!

I love all of her personality!!

Happy Birthday! Wow, you have babies fast!! I have done the no pain medicine route as well, and I too DO NOT recommend it! I learned from that experience and got the epidural ASAP with the second kiddo! haha Love that she loves deodorant, my little boy who is almost 7 is the same way!

Happy belated birthday to Dalton! What a sweet little tribute you gave to her. So sweet!

I will have to see if I can get another cute video of Lucie for her to see. Of course, I don't think I can top the pretty eyes! I'll try. :-)
