Birthday girl Maisie~ six years old

No way is my little Maisie Miao Miao six years old.  I know that each year I say the same thing, that it seems like just a short time ago when we saw her cue ball cutie face for the first time and she was just a scared little 14 month old being placed in our arms.  Each year I also say that I can’t believe how grown up and mature she looks.


Maisie’s now a big six year old, a second grader and already almost finished with her second year of competitive gymnastics.  I just want to cry as the time is passing much faster than I’d like and though I love seeing all that she experiences, does, accomplishes and who she’s becoming I wish I could just slow it down and keep her small a little longer.  Maisie is the best daughter I could have ever have asked for.  She’s kind, loveable, feisty, smart, talented, athletic, motivated, independent, self assured, opinionated, demanding, an all around great child and the light of my life.  I look forward to every day with her, experiencing life with her and I look forward to seeing what her future holds…but not too quickly mind you.

Happy Birthday my sweet little Maisie Miao Miao, I love you more and more each and every day.

Here’s my sweet little Maisie on her birthday through the years.

Since I don’t have a picture of my sweet Maisie from her first birthday I figured that I’d post a recipe that I posted during that month and my choice was Cioppino…well my easy version of it at least.  Click on the link or the picture to be taken to the recipe.

  4. Happy 6th Birthday Maisie! I was looking back at old posts today of the first time I met you when you were a month shy of your 2nd birthday. So little and just as cute now as then! Heh...I remember when our backs were turned and you found a bottle of soda and decided to try it out! :o)

    Hope you have the very best birthday!

  5. Happy birthday, Maisie! All her pics are darling (although I just love the one at age two). Lisa, you certainly got blessed with one very special little girl.

    I just made cioppino last night!
