We celebrated with a Birthday Brunch Sleeping Beauty Party. Looking back there was a lot I didn’t get pictures of. I had a fun table all set up with princesses and pink for the cousins to eat at together. Isabelle got a few things, a bird book, a Dora lunch box, a couple outfits. Her big gift was furniture for the doll house she got for Christmas. Now she is all set.
I sure love this angel girl that fills my day with happiness and warmth. She loves life, LOVES IT!!! She is just happy to be alive and to enjoy all that comes her way. She can be sweet and sassy, funny and sad, carefree and very concerned. Her laugh is contagious. She can get VERY excited over anything. Presents, bugs, trips into town, watching a movie, worms, playing with friends. She will often say when she sees projects I am working on or something I’m putting together, “Mom, that is sooooo beautiful.” She melts my heart.
She loves talking on the phone, hugging Jakob, following her mom around all day, swinging on our rope swing, taking her shirt off when she gets hot (like the boys), pestering, I mean loving her baby brother, eating “white” icecream, and having sleepovers in Mom and Dad’s bed. I love hearing her sing. Love it. Just the other day she was singing “In the leafy treetops.” She sang, “In the leafy treetops the flowers are naughty.”
I just love my sweet girl and couldn’t possibly imagine my life without her. She hit 4 with such enthusiam, asking the day before when she was going to have her next birthday (her 5th birthday.) Hold off my sweet girl. Enjoy this next year. You will only be 4 once and when it is gone it is gone. Savor your days of play, your days of exploration of the wonders around you. Savor your childhood and all that comes with it. I love you my girl and am so proud of the little girl you are and the glimpses of the beautiful future I see that awaits you. Happy Birthday.
