{four} oh my!

you were born {four} years ago today

two weeks before your due date

we didn't want your birthday to compete with Christmas

we wanted it as separate, as special as possible

right now you {love}...



your toy kitchen


Fancy Nancy

princess stuff

lip gloss

coloring books and markers, NOT crayons

your girlie friends

your toy horse, Fancy

Aunt Karen's real horse, Fancy

right now you love to {play}...

with your stuffed animals

farm with your Fisher Price barn and animals

make "oatmeal" for your dollies like Daddy does for you


a funny game with Benji and Alec called "Princess Power"

 dress up with Benji as your stylist

right now you love to {eat}...





still not sure about sandwiches

brown rice

oatmeal with blueberries



and just about anything else I serve you

right now you are {learning}...

how to read

how to write

how to color in the lines

how to sit still for a book with chapters and pictures

how to set the table

how to wash dishes and wash the sink
how to share and use your words when you're frustrated

how to memorize the Bible

will be learning to play the violin

right now {we love} your...


curly hair

still chubby feet

huggies and kisses each night

sense of humor

eagerness to help

desire to learn

sweet mix of tomboy and princess

...you asked Jesus to live in your heart about a month ago...
even though you are young, you knew exactly what it meant...

we love you just the way you are...
don't grow too fast precious daughter....
