Every year around this time, I can’t help, but share what I am thinking about my oldest’s birthday with my favorite thing to do here on my blog by asking her what her favorites are to see how much she has grown, changed and gotten older over the course of the year for her annual birthday post.
This year, my girl reminded me we actually had to do this post and started happily answering the questions at hand even before I had a chance to jot down her answers. So, I had to ask her again once I had my notepad ready to go.
This article was written about 2 or so weeks ago though and edited after we returned just slightly, as we were Disney bound (which is another story for another day) the week before her birthday (celebrating her birthday Disney style overtime) and just got back late Saturday afternoon the day before her actual 7th birthday (yesterday).
But still make no mistake, I am not only still on Disney time today, but also still a bit shell shocked and nostalgic, because I can’t help, but travel back those 7 years now to where it all began with me being a first time mom to this little girl, who was a once small but screaming, colicky baby that it is now so soft spoken and kind hearted as a growing girl could be.
But even though her birthday was actually this Sunday, I couldn’t resist as I have been sharing birthdays here with all though, since I started this blog and hope to do so for years to come.
If you are new here and missed last years’ answers to these same questions at 6 years old, click here.
But now onto 7 years old with her new and updated answers…
[Tweet “The more things change..Happy 7th Birthday to my girl”]
My Oldest’s Favorites at 7 years old:
1. Favorite Color: Pink (Is that your final answer?)
My yellow girl, who became a pink girl now apparently is a blue girl this year. But on second thought, she is just as indecisive as her mother and made me change this last minute back to pink.
Seriously, she totally kept me on my toes with this first question!
2. Favorite Movie: The Descendants
My once Frozen obsessed girl is now into The Descendants Mal and Evie. Don’t get me wrong, she still was super happy to be going to Disney and getting to go on the newest Frozen ride in Epcot, but she is indeed growing up with her tastes evolving and maturing, too.
3. Favorite TV Show: Stuck in the Middle
She recently told her younger sister that Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is for babies and is not one for watching Disney Jr. anymore at 7 years old. She now watches Disney, but the pre-teen/teen shows. So,when asked her favorite, as of right now it is Stuck in the Middle.
4. Favorite Book: The Descendants
My girl is now reading chapter books as first grade has come to a completion. She also absolutely loves to read to and help her younger sister by a year to read and sound out when she does. Also, during one of the recent school book fairs, she chose The Descendants chapter book and it has now become one of her all time favorites, but then again she seems to just have a love for the wicked side this year.
5. Favorite Song: Rotten to the Core
This one totally changed and no longer is Olaf and summer king here as he has needed to move over and make room for the Rotten to the Core girls of The Descendants once again…
6. Favorite Thing to Drink: Strawberry Lemonade
Sticking to the pink theme, my girl loves lemonade, but it has to be pink by adding strawberries to it as it would seem this year out.
7. Favorite Thing She Likes to Do: Play Soccer
As soon as I asked her, she emphatically declared that playing soccer with her friends with her dad coaching is still up there and now her favorite thing to do.
8. Favorite Thing to Eat: Cake
Leave it to my girl to mimic Marie Antoinette! But seriously, this girl knows how to party and love having her cake and eat it, too!!
9. Favorite Animal: Puppy
Lucky for her we still got Elsa, even if she isn’t quite the little golden retriever puppy she once was!
10. Favorite Thing to Wear: Her Hip Hop Dance Outfit
This past year she took Hip Hop dance and she honestly loved her recital outfit and still plays the hip hop version of her recital song, “It’s a Small World” whenever she can.
11. Favorite Job For When She Gets Older: Being a YouTuber
This one she made me add this year, as this is all she seems to talk about as she loves to video pretty much anything she can and document it for posterity and would love to become famous apparently on YouTube for this!
Happy 7th Birthday–We Love You So much!!
