now we are six

My mom found this for Phoebe for her birthday. It’s so sweet. I can’t believe Phoebe is six! That sort of happened in a blur. Having a birthday right at the end of school is a little tricky. Phoebe is not much of a toy kid, and also not that into a fuss, so we planned for that but turns out six wants some fuss. We hobbled it together ok. The big hit was the “American Girl” doll (Our Generation doll from Target) that she now claims to love as the “sister she’ll never have”. That is, when she doesn’t forget her in the trunk of the car. We picked a doll that sort of looks like Phoebe and I have to say, she’s pretty cute. I’ve never been a big fan of the AG dolls aesthetically but I’m coming around. I might even sew Diamond (yep, that’s what she named her) some new Summer dresses.

  1. I can’t believe Phoebe is six either. I started reading your blog before she was born…my, how time flies. Anyway, a belated happy birthday to your June baby. 🙂

  2. It doesn’t feel like I’ve been reading your blog for over 6 years now, wow how time flies! On a side note, your blog has always been an inspiration, I know how hard it can be to keep one going, so thank you for keeping it up, your’s was one of the first blogs I ever read so I’m sentimental about it 🙂

  3. thanks! I’m sentimental about it too 🙂 I know blogging is dead or whatever but I’m looking forward to being back in this space. with both kids in school all day next year I’ll need people to talk to!

  4. Happy birthday, June baby!

  5. I was due with my daughter in August the summer Phoebe was born and I have been reading you before and still. It hit so close to home. I can’t believe your girl is 6! And my Dorothy will be in just a few weeks.

  6. Yeah Junebaby!
    Those six years went by fast. Your blog was one of my first reads, and I started mine just a month or two after Phoebe was born – so I’ve got a little six year birthday coming up too.
    Seems like just yesterday we were watching those little quilts go up on her sunshine walls.

  7. We LOVE our old copy of this book. It’s timelessly charming! Our first girl turned 6 in May and she was so torn…almost too old for fairies and dollies, but not quite…but also wanting interesting sciencey stuff. One day she wants French braids, the next day, a mohawk. Sigh. I love six.

  8. What? Blogging is dead? Really? Who said so??? I sure hope it isn’t!

  9. Love that book! Happy Birth-day (to you too, Mom)!

  10. Awww! I too starting reading your blog when you where preggers with “junebaby” … so hard to believe that much time has flown! I can’t wait to see what kind of outfits you make Diamond! 😀

  11. happy birthday to Phoebe. I’ve been following your blog since she was around 2 yrs old. It always amazes me how time goes so fast. the Winnie the Pooh book looks super cute.

  12. When I turned 6 my mom bought me this same book in soft cover and then I fell in love with poetry.
