WOW! My daughter, Cedi turned FIVE today! I can’t believe that she’s already FIVE! Before I get into all saga of all the adventures she had for her birthday I thought we’d take a look back at some photo’s… Click HERE to read the story of Mercedi Rose’s Birth.Cedi – right before I went to the hospital.November 29th, 5:30pm Mercedi Rose Lapacek was born weighing in at 6lbs 13 oz and measuring 20-inches long.

Mercedi Rose – 5 years old (well…almost 5 in this photo…)
Cedi and Me on her 3rd Birthday. Me and Cedi on her 4th Birthday. Me and Cedi on her 5th birthday.
We are so blessed to have Mercedi. She is a wonderful little, pistol of a girl. I’m pretty sure she got her stubbornness from her papa ;). She’s a smart little girl that likes everything just perfect (and I know she didn’t get that from me!). I love seeing the excitement when she discovers something new that she can do and the things she imagines up for her and Capri to pretend never cease to amaze me. She’s an absolute sweet heart to Persimoni and calls her ‘Bibble’. Monkey bars are no obstacle for this girl. She came home with bleeding blisters on her hands once she learned she could do them and we had to keep her off for a few days. As soon as her hands slightly started to heal – she was back up there. I could go on and on but really – she’s truly a magical little girl.
Now…enough gushing about Cedi – what did we do to celebrate her birthday!?
We did so much for Cedi’s birthday that I’ll just give you some sneak peaks at it tonight and I’ll show more pictures later. It was lots of fun but I think next year – we’re going to go to a movie and have a quiet birthday. I may have planned TOO much fun into a few days… Cedi’s birthday celebration all started on Thanksgiving at my parents. She had cake and opened some presents from her grandparents and Uncle Brian. On Sunday night, we headed over to Frank’s parents for a celebration there as well!Yesterday, I took Cedi to get her ears pierced. She did really good – no tears, no whimpers – just a brave little girl. We then came home and had cake with some friends and opened her presents from us and her sisters. It was a very nice night and probably would have been fine to end it there. But…I didn’t.Cedi had her first day as a 5 year old 4K-er this morning.I brought her birthday treat in towards the end of the day so the kids could take their caramel apples home with them to enjoy. Then, it was off to Cedi’s (and Capri and Pip’s) first visit to Chuck E Cheese. They had lots of fun with their daycare friends! Our next stop was at The Glitter Workshop for the Tuesday Make ‘n’ Take Night of decorating Christmas Cookies!Both of the girls (and me) had LOTS of fun with this adventure! It was great that all the hard work was done for us and we could just have fun with the decorating. And to end the night we headed to the Melting Pot for some chocolate fondue dessert. Whew…what a birthday! Now, I have to remember – a movie and cake will be just fine for Birthday 6!
