My Baby Girl turns 5 years!

We recently celebrated this girls birthday this month (with her brother’s coming up tomorrow!) and I can’t believe my baby is 5 years old already. She’s been such a spark of fun, joy, spunk and sweetness for us all. She’s so precocious and social and I love it. I definitely think she’ll take after her father and possibly love acting (no so much shy like her mamma). She’s an artist as well and a dreamer and so thoughtful about others feelings.

She wanted a mermaid birthday so we celebrated by making giant mermaids for her friends to color and decorate with seashells, jewels and more. We also made a set of mini ones (shown here) for puppets and cake toppers (full mermaid party pack coming to the shop so soon!).

I love to have a special birthday outfit picked out for her each year and this darling Bonjour Diary shirt from a new favorite French boutique (can’t wait to go in person next time in Paris). We paired it with her favorite Kokori Kids wales trousers. I also made this sparkle crown lined with soft faux fur (more of which will also be in the shop for holiday!).    

Happy birthday my dear little girl! xoxo

    Beautiful post Merrilee – so artistic with the Mermaid puppets, loose vagabond/romantic style and the vaudeville make up. The Bonjour Diary rose blouse in handblock print looks gorgeous with the Kokori whale trousers … and the fur-lined crown – it’s a star – just perfect. Merci merci, kim xxx

      Thanks Kim! This blouse and what you select to carry in your shop is just darling. xoxo Mer
