Happy Birthday, Sweetpea!

Today is my firstborn's sixth birthday and, to celebrate, here's one of my all-time favorite pictures of her.


For fun, I'd like you guys to provide its caption. As of Sunday evening, I'll pick my favorite (with misterwrites's input), to be announced in Monday's post. The winner will "win" a limerick or ode written (by me, not misterwrites, unless of course you'd like the inclusion of sharks with lasers) in their honor. Let the captioning begin!
PS. "Sweetpea" is not her given name.

"Shh. Mommy's on the phone with her Agent!"

"Mommy told me to be as quiet as a mouse until she finishes the last paragraph of her new book."

She is just darling. Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to the big girl!

"Shhh... it wasn't me!"

Darling photo! (You should scrapbook it, hee hee.)

And I would SO love to hear a lymrick by misterwrites!!!!!!!!!

Melissa Marsh said...

What a gorgeous photo! Happy Birthday to Sweetpea!

I can't think of a good caption - am horrible at those kinds of things. ;-)

Marian said...

Your daughter's an angel, but she looks as though she's watching something come closer. A spider maybe?

"Itsy-bitsy spider, crawling ever near,
Trying to crawl up my face and sleep inside my ear."

Aw, how cute.

"My mom's gonna be so mad when she finds out she's been tagged on Wendy's blog."

Happy Birthday to your SweetPea!

As far as a caption goes?

"Oh noes! She's wearing the same dress! Quick, under the table!"

Dube said...

I love Jen's caption suggestion!

The picture is absolutely adorable - and very well done. Impressive!

Is Mom looking? Can I reach that cookie?

Janna Qualman said...

You guys are great! Thanks for the birthday wishes; we had a great day. It was everything a 6-year-old could ask for and then some. (Including Chuck E. Cheese...)

You've given fantastic captions!

Janna Qualman said...

Oh! Stay tuned for the winner and ode or limerick come Monday. Let's see if any more entries trickle in on Sunday!

Turkey Lurkey said...

Oops.. I arrived a little late for the captioning. But it is an adorable picture!! Don't you just love capturing those moments?

Rafael said...

You know Janna, that picture would make for a great book cover.

Terri Tiffany said...

Will she notice if I take only one cookie?

She is soooo cute!!

Janna Qualman said...

Thanks, everyone! Caption contest is officially closed. Stay tuned for the winner tomorrow!

And I see a new face (welcome, Debra!) and one or two I've not seen in awhile (hiya Dube and Marian!). Thanks for coming by and commenting. :)

Jessica said...

What a cutie! The big six. :-)

Kathy said...

Drat! I'm too late for the captioning, but I must say that is a very cute pic!

In case this thing signs me anonymous again, I'll just sign my name.

Jessica - "Six" is so hard to wrap my head around. And my arms! She's getting so tall and big. :)

Kathy - Thanks! The subject is pretty darn cute herself. :)

A very belated Happy Birthday to your daughter. That is a great shot! :)
