Now we are six

When I was One,
I had just begun.
When I was Two,
I was nearly new.
When I was Three
I was hardly me.
When I was Four,
I was not much more.
When I was Five, I was just alive.
But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.


— A.A. Milne



You couldn't be cleverer on our walk to school this morning.

Happy birthday, kid.

For many it's a given — it's A.A. Milne who authored the poem; I've edited this post to give attribution. Sorry if this caused any confusion.

Happy Birthday to Helena! She's growing into quite the amazing little lady.
