Look who's five!

Today, my sweet angel turns five. Where has all this time gone? 

Happy Birthday, our little lady. We're so proud of the individual you are becoming. We love how you notice all the small stuff and make a really big deal out of it.We adore how inquisitive you are and the very insightful comments you make. Your lyrical nature and your fancy dance moves brings us so much happiness. We appreciate how kind you are to your friends and family. The one liners you bust out are hilarious! Your sweetness, resilience and independence are just a few of your character traits that we are so proud of. 

As our firstborn, my bond with Cass is special. As a new mom with a (somewhat) colicky baby, those first days were tough. It's kind of like we are war buddies, having survived the dark times, day by day. She became my special little friend-- something that still continues today. She is my mini me! 
And once again, Cassia, just like your fourth birthday post, here's what you've been up to this year...

Here you are on your birthday in April of 2013

 In May, you took your first long road-trip to NYC for Uncle Din's engagement.

You had your first dance recital in June

 In July,  you posed like a flamingo in the Singapore Zoo

Here you are in Malacca, Malaysia in August

First day of Kindergarten (and Montessori) in September

 Halloween in October

Here's our family in November for Divali

And us four in December once again

In January, we bundled up for your coldest winter yet!!!

February was very sad for our family but you made the best of it, playing with your cousins in Trinidad

In March, you became a bonafide reader

And here you are in April once more. 

Cassie, words cannot express the love we have for you or the joy you bring to our lives. We wish you a wonderful year to follow-- one filled with great learning, good health, loads of laughter and extreme happiness.

We love you always!
Mommy, Daddy and Anjali.
