Happy 6th Birthday, Captain Chaos!

This photo was taken May 8, 2004. The baby in the picture is Captain Chaos, 4 days old.
The wonderful lady holding her was our good friend Captain Chaos, the lady our daughter was named after.

 This is a picture taken June 4, 2004 on the Captain's 1 month birthday.

Since that day, we've had many adorable pictures taken of her. Here are a couple of her first year.

Today we celebrate the Captain's birthday. We have many things to be grateful for when it comes to our only girl. We love her for her many fine qualities. Below is a list of some of those things, along with photos of her wonderful, blessed 6 years with us.

We love you for:
Your playfulness

Your beauty

Your strength in the face of a fight

Your love of the outdoors

Your smile

Your laughter

Your class

Your ability to sleep through most anything

Your cheery disposition in the wee hours of the morning

Your loving heart

Your love of anything Mickey
(Seriously, she loves Mickey)

(Reaaaaaallllllllly loves Mickey)

The way you march to the beat of your own drum

Your innocence

Your curiosity and wonder of the big world around you

Your unparalleled bed-head

The way you make us smile

Your weird love of chickens

Your ability to call it like it is

Your beautiful eyes

Your sense of humor

Your perfect aim

Your addiction to adrenaline

Your girlishness

Your modesty

Your love of Slim Jims and Funyuns.

So today we wish you a very Happy 6th Birthday, Captain Chaos.
Thank you for all the joy you bring to our lives.

That and all the entertainment.

Happy Birthday, Captain! What wonderful pictures of her. I must say that in picture #4 - we have that same bouncy chair; given to me by my sister where her two daughters bounced before mine. Also - we have that same mickey mouse blue sorcerer's hat.

That chair was given to me by my sister as well. Her two girls used it, followed by all three of ours. We loved that chair!
