Ceeya Cinco

Today, my beloved Ceeya turns five! Here she is, enjoying a birthday chocolate muffin before school this morning. 

I can't even describe how much Ceeya has changed our lives, and (warning, cliche) how much richer our family is for having her in it. We were not lonely before as three, but now I wonder what we did with only one child. I can see how some people keep trying for just one more kid. I don't see how they afford it, but I get it. Each kid seems to magnify the love in the house. It doesn't seem possible, but love just magically expands.

Sweet Dub and I joke about Ceeya being our Unexpected Journey, and it has been one wild and crazy journey that has taught us so much about each other and about ourselves. She is so amazing and lovely and needed in our family. How I worried that she might be overshadowed by Viva! It seems silly now, since she is such a big personality, but Viva is a tough act to follow.

I need not have worried. My little busy bee is no shrinking violet.

Can't wait to see what comes next. Happy Birthday, my babygirl!
