I know what you mean.  Where did the last 6 years go.  Still deciding whether or not to give Mia a birthday party although she is getting a Nintendo DS for her birthday.  But given how tall she is (wearing size 7 clothing already & wearing size 13 shoes) a bike might be a better option.  She looks a bit like a pumpkin on a pea when she rides her current 40cm one, so thinking a 50cm.
