She woke me up at 5 a.m. to let me know it was officially her birthday, then climbed in bed with me. While she snuggled up she mumbled, "Now that I'm six Daddy says I can dress myself for school and put myself to bed at night, OK?" then drifted back to sleep.
That night we celebrated. Sam got to decide what she wanted for dinner - she chose the China buffet - and then she opened her gifts. She originally asked for a puppy (taking a hint from Addi's recent birthday) but when Jay said no way she asked for Uno. This girl is a major card shark - she routinely and legitimately beats us at games.

For the record, Sam did put herself to bed, now that she's six. It was only one time but I'll take it.
