Bailee turns 7!

My big girl turned 7 on February 13!! I can't believe it's already been 7 years since she was born! She's such a big girl now. Where did the time go? She used to be my little baby, but now she's a big, independent girl. I can't believe how life just keeps on going. She keeps growing and growing, and becoming more and more mature. And she's only 7! It's so fun to see her learn and grow, and I can't believe how smart she is! She loves to read books, write, color, and do crafts. I love watching her do a project. She tilts her head back and forth from side to side as she's concentrating on something. It's so cute!
Her current favorite meal is baked ziti, and her favorite color is purple. She also LOVES to go swimming!!
Here's a little re-cap of her THREE birthday celebrations:
We celebrated with my side of the family on Superbowl Sunday, February 7. We also celebrated her cousin Jovi's first birthday that nigh. My SIL, Brianna, makes the cutest cakes! She made Ryker his "Cars" cake back in October, and this cute purple cake for Jovi & Bailee. The girls both wore polka-dots that night, and it wasn't even planned!

We had a birthday party for Bailee on her actual b-day, Feb. 13. She was able to choose 10 friends to invite. I always worry about hurt feelings from other relatives or friends in her classes and neighborhood, but I can only take so many at once! ;) I hope no one is offended.

We played pin the candle on the cake, duck-duck-goose, had a pinata, and a couple of other fun games.

Each of the kids got to decorate their own cupcake:

And here she is opening presents:

And last but not least, the cake! I borrowed some of my SIL's cake stuff and made this little heart cake. I thought it turned out pretty cute! (for a beginner)

And then, we celebrated with Kevin's side of the family on Sunday, Feb. 14th. Also grandpa Chapman's b-day. We also celebrated her cousin, Hadlee's 1st birthday.

Happy Birthday Bailee!! I love you SO much!
