Today she is six

And I am very afraid that if I blink, she will be 16.

Happy birthday, baby. Love you more than you will ever know.

Love this photo! (You are so talented!) Happy birthday cute six year old! (Jaimee wants to come over RIGHT NOW) ☺

PS Seriously... don't blink.

Tell her she's grounded from turning six. Tell her she has to go backwards now. It works for my kids. It makes them cry.

HILLARY said...

She will be. I blinked and my first baby is 14 today. We have a bday in common. I'm posting about her today.

Lauren said...

Don't *blink*, don't *blink*!


I love that picture. You are such a talented blogger and photographer!


I love how you said you love her more than she will ever know. It really is true...how can our children possibly know how much we love them?

Happy Birthday to Hannah!

Christy said...

This is really in response to your previous post. YOU HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO BE A PHOTO SNOB - your pictures are absolutely beautiful. As a matter of fact, I have a coveting problem with your photographic abilities... Like this picture of your twirling 6 year old - absolutely amazing. I hope you just buy the cheapest package of those school shots.....

Christy said...

BTW - You WILL blink and she WILL be 16 - so keep taking those pictures!

Family Adventure said...

Happy birthday, Hannah :)

Lovely shot, as always.

a) amazing picture

b) ooh, your youngest is 6!! You sure you don't need another baby? 6 is so old!

c) ignore b. Life without babies must have (how should I know) it's many advantages.

Kimberly said...

I love, love, love that picture! When are you coming to visit so you can take some pictures of my little ones! Give your birthday girl some extra hugs and kisses from us! Is she really six? She is just so adorable!

Wendi said...

Beautiful shot! Beautiful girl! Happy happy Hannah...

AnnaBanana said...

I can't believe she is 6 years old! I remember when she was born. My goodness, don't blink (even though somedays you would like to blink). Beautiful picture!!

andrea said...

what about that country song, "don't blink" i think it's by kenny chesney or keith urban or tim mcgraw or some other semi-hot cowboy looking guy. i've only just scratched the surface of country, but that's a good one. check it out. or win my prize at BP and you'll have it.

happy bday, six year old girl!!

What a cute picture! Is that a new haircut? She looks like she's happy to be six. Happy Birthday Sweet Hannah!

Becky said...

Yah, is that a new haircut? Just what I was thinking. Looks like a cute bob. Cute twirly picture too- she probably loves looking at that. That is all that mattered to me when I was little- how my dress twirled. I can't believe she is 6. That means Camden is going to be six. What happened to our preschoolers???

Diane said...

I just noticed that when I posted a comment it was under Robyn's name. oops! She says happy birthday too!

TravelinOma said...

The great thing is that at 16 she'll still have the 6 year old inside her. Isn't it great that she turned out to be a girly girl in pink??

RobynandJoe said...

We're visiting my parents in Nashville, and my mom left comments on everyone's blog as me. Oops! Anyway, Happy Birthday to your cute, happy girl. I hope mine turns out as sweet.

danandcindy said...

Happy Birthday Hannah!

Love your favorite uncle.

Chatter said...

Happy Birthday Hannah! You are too cute spinning in your beautiful dress.

Bridget said...

My gag has been lifted. I can comment again!

Love that photo. You have totally captured that moment. So beautiful.

And yes, I am totally with you on the school picture thing. They are awful. I buy the smallest package which is like letter M just so my kids feel like they are loved as much as the kid sitting next to them in class.

Tom & Rachel said...

BP buddy here. :)

Happy Birthday to your adorable little girl. What an amazing picture. Seriously.

I also just read a little bit through your post about school pictures. Too funny. I'm all about bringing back the whole 80's double shot. You know, the one where you are looking forward then you have the faded looking off to the side shot in the background. Now those were beauties. :)

Blazing Goddess said...

What an awesome twirl!! I used to love doing that. Well, don't tell, but I still do it....

Keep your eyes wide open and your camera ready. I could have sworn I just celebrated my duaghter's 7th. She'll be 14 in a couple of months. Where does it GO?!?!

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

How adorable! Happy birthday to the little Princess!
I got a prince's birthday today. Time does go fast. My baby boy is 17 today!

Holly said...

Beautiful photo. They grow up way too fast, don't they?

diane said...

The photo is so artistic. My baby girl will be 16 soon...and she was 6 yesterday. We have the same family 2 boys and a princess!

Michael said...

That picture is great. I think it captures everything it is to be six. Happy birthday, Hannah!

Kristy said...

Beautiful pic. Happy B-Day to your princess!

Jenibelle said...

Gorgeous photo, absolutely stunning.
Don't you wish you could just shrink wrap them and keep them little and innocent and wonderful forever?

I was at lunch with Lauren and my friend Rachel in Utah this weekend and burst into tears missing my "little girl" and wishing she was 6 again. Savor each and every minute, time flies by too quickly.

Annemarie said...

That is a beautiful pic! My baby just turned 2 and I'm dying!

Melain said...

What a great photo. You need to stop blinking, because that's exactly how it happens.

Mique (as in M-i-c-k-e-y) said...

Such a sweet shot. Love it!!!
And I still we lived closer- my Julia would have a devine time with your Hannah.

Cheffie-Mom said...

This photo is awesome! Sorry I have not been blogging lately! I have been taping shows. What was I thinking?? Hah! Maybe it is a good thing I wasn't thinking! If you get a minute, check it out. I'd love to hear what you think. I am inviting all my blog friends over for feedback. http://www.dishingwithdebbie.com Your stories are great and my whole idea behind this show is for other moms to share real stories like you do. Sponsors are donating neat prizes like chocolate baskets and mini-chef aprons and way cool cookery stuff. Anyway, I'd love to hear from you.
