One big fun birthday party for SIX!

Today was my big fun birthday party!  I’m not quite 6 yet, but I will be on Wednesday.

Auntie Cheryl decorated my cupcakes and they were SO cute!

More champion clothes

I got another one today. My team is the winner again!  But I am VERY tired, so it's time to sleep early. We are staying in a hotel, so I hope I sleep good. And mommy does too.

A+ on my heart test

It’s been about 2 years since I had to see Dr. J, my heart doctor.  I was so strong and healthy that he didn’t have to see me for a while. 

But today it was time to go see him again and take a little test.  First they checked to see how big I was.  30 lbs 7 oz and 38.5 inches is what they said I was.  Mommy thinks that’s big.  Everyone else seems to think it’s little since I’ll be 6 in a couple weeks.  I say it’s just right!

Then I talked to one new doctor. He was nice but he wanted me to lay on my back so he could listen to me. And I do NOT like to lay on my back at all.  Mommy is stronger than me, though, so I couldn’t get up even though I wanted to.  It was over quick, though.

After him, we went next door to see Mr. Jim, and he gave me a couple tests.  One was EKG and it had lots of cold sticky things on my skin. I didn’t like that.  And since I don’t like to lay on my back, Mommy sat down first and then I leaned back on her, even though I didn’t want to, but she was stronger than me again.  They put on some TV I like and Mommy sang me some songs, and I let them do the test. 

But after he took the stickies off for the EKG, he put a few more on for a test called the echo.  I sat pretty still with Mommy holding onto me tight. And guess what…. I passed all my tests!

Dr. J came and saw me after my tests and said I was doing really good!  He said I’m doing the right things since I do swim and cheer and school and lots of stuff.  He said it keeps my heart strong. 

The best news is that I don’t have to go back and see Dr. Johnson for 3 years!! Woo hoo!  I like him a lot, but it’s a good thing when you don’t have to see your heart doctor all the time. 

Mommy and Daddy are going to help me make up a letter and some pictures to send to Dr. F, because he is the one who fixed my heart up really good back when I was a tiny baby.  We think he will like to see how big and strong I am now!

Athletic National Champs. We won!

Today I got to do another cheer competition. I told Mommy when we were getting dressed, “I LOVE cheer competition!”  And we had lots of fun today!

I was so excited. And I did my parts really good today!  There were lots and lots of cheerleaders there, from lots of different states. 

But the big news is that we won our division! Woo Hoo!  Our team got a big sign to put in our gym.bombgroup-wm

I got some neat stuff to take home, too… another medal, and a super cool sweatshirt.

Next weekend I have one show in St. Louis on Friday night to do, and then we go to a place called Joplin for another BIG competition on Saturday and Sunday. KiKi’s team didn’t do their routine today, so she watched with Mommy and Daddy. She was a little sad.  But when we go to Joplin, her team gets to go and do their stuff there, too.   It’ll be a fun girls trip with Mommy.

This time we had 3 new cheerleaders, from my group of “extra” cool friends in my town.  I love my team! I tell Mommy and Daddy that I wanna go cheer every day, so I’m excited for practice again tomorrow afternoon!
