Happy Birthday Leecy T!

Happy, happy birthday Leecy T dear! Happy days will come to you all year! It's crazy to think you are already 6 years old!!!
I know I say it every year, but you don't realize how much your children have grown until you sit back and reflect on how much they've changed in the past year!
Aleece has grown leaps and bounds this past year, and if you'll indulge me for the time being, I'd like to take a minute to brag! :)
*Aleece attended and graduated kindergarten this year! She had such a great time and she surpassed all of her teacher's expectations! She can read on the same level as some 4th graders and we love to hear her read anything and everything!
*We can no longer spell anything out---she is way too smart for that! She catches us every time!
*The girl has a PHENOMENAL memory! She can recall events from years past! We don't know how she does it!
*She has learned to overcome some of her fears, especially her shyness. She is still shy, but nowhere near where she was this time last year.
*She lost her first tooth.
*She continues to be a sweet, sensitive spirit, who loves her family very much. She has an intuition about her (she has known when I've been pregnant, before I have!) and she has a strong testimony of the gospel.
*She wants to be a rock star/fashion diva when she grows up! She changes her clothes frequently throughout the day and most(all) days insists on wearing a dress or skirt and high heels. She is into ALL things girly!
*She is outgrowing her breathing health problems. We have made it over a year without having to check her into the hospital! Hallelujah! (knock on wood!) We were worried that school would exacerbate her problems, but it seemed to help!
*Her favorite color is purple and she still loves all animals(besides being a rock star she wants to be a veterinarian as well)! She also has a major sweet tooth just like her Daddy!
We are so very blessed to have Aleece as part of our family. She is a wonderful big sister and she has a great sense of humor. Our family wouldn't be complete without her in it. She brings us great joy everyday and we love watching her learn and grow! We can't wait to see what this next year brings! Happy birthday baby girl! We love you!!!
