My sweet Layne celebrated her fifth birthday this month. She is a feisty five. Layne loves to climb and tumble. She loves to help momma in the kitchen and rake leaves in the yard. Layne spends time each day creating with paper, crayons, paint, markers and whatever else mom and dad let her get her hands on. Layne is the little mother to all of her older brothers. Whenever they get scraped up she is the first one to the first aid kit, quickly dealing out love and band aids. Layne has a temper but it is because she is so passionate. She can be stubborn but most of the time it shows itself as determination. Layne loves music and dancing and is rarely silent. Layne is our girl. She is a special one.
This year we planned a special day for Layne's birthday. Rather than do a party, we decided to take Layne on a ladies day out. To accomplish this, I asked her Grandma Pam and Great Grandma Mildred to accompany us to the Build a Bear workshop. They gladly accepted.
We strolled into build a bear and Layne got giddy. She flitted from one shelf to another touching everything and oohing and ahhing every other second. Layne was so excited, it made the three of us chuckle. Layne very quickly decided that she must have a pink bear for her birthday bear. She hugged that one tight and walked right to the next station. Layne loved the stuffing machine, she was completely engrossed watching it do its magic.
Then we headed to bath time. Too cute!
