Sloan is Six!

I cannot believe our Sloany girl is six!!  Six seems like such a big kid (just ask Sloan, it IS a very big kid :))!  We had so much fun celebrating our big girl on her actual birthday and at her puppy dog themed breakfast with friends last weekend.  Our girl is so lucky when it comes to friendships.  She has known most of her closest friends since she was born.  I feel so blessed to see Sloan around her little friends, they all love each other so much!

Sloan had school on her actual birthday which was really weird.  It felt so strange being away from her for part of the day, but we definitely made the most of the time we had with her!  She woke up to a room full of balloons and then we headed downstairs for donuts.  After school we opened gifts, went to Playdate PDX (so so fun if you're local), had 10 Barrel for dinner, and ended the night with cake at home.  It was a great day for an even better girl.

A few months ago we had breakfast at one of our favorite places, Mother's Bistro.  While we were there Sloan said she wanted to have her birthday party there.  I was like wait, you want to go to a restaurant and I don't have to throw a birthday party??  LET'S DO IT SLOANY GIRL!!  So we went for a little puppy dog themed breakfast and it was everything she wanted and more.  She felt so grown up and special, it was so cute.  She's been telling everyone that she had a grown up brunch for her birthday because she's not a little kid anymore :).

I made sure Sloan's breakfast still felt like a party by adding a few little puppy dog touches.  All of the little girls got a puppy dog stuffed animal and made them collars out of pipe cleaners, beads, and a a little charm.  My friend Lisa made the cutest puppy dog cupcakes (check out lilac butterfly cakes on facebook if you're local!).  It was the easiest party I have ever thrown (hello, no clean up!) and it really turned out so cute.  Plus our big girl had the very best time!!

Six year old Sloan is pretty amazing.  She is the fearless leader of her gaggle of siblings, LOVES school and her friends, plays soccer and does ballet, could do art all day long, has two missing teeth, and is the life of any party (girlfriend does not ever shy away from attention).  We love our girl so big and love getting to watch her grow into such a wonderful young lady.
