My Girl Turns 4…

Dear Miss A,

My sweet pickle.  You turned 4 today…and you haven’t missed a day of amazing me.  You’re sassy, you’re smart, you’re one of the funniest people I’ve ever known.  I love you more everyday.  You are an amazing big sister.  Baby D is so lucky to have you to teach him everything you know.  Daddy & I are so incredibly proud of you.

Some fun facts about you…

You love:  Your blankie…still.  You also love make believe.  You have a wild imagination and will keep yourself occupied with your imaginative play for hours.  You love playing house with your cousins & someone is always given the part of “sweetie”.  Sometimes you like to play a puppy or a kitty.  You also love movies.  Today it’s a tie between “Cinderella: Dreams Come True” & “Cinderella: A Twist In Time”.  You just ended your “Alice In Wonderland” phase.  You are definitely a normal 4 year old and love Frozen.  Your rendition of “Let It Go” is very dramatic!  Your favorite TV show is “Sheriff Callie” & I love when you sing that song!  You love broadway & going to shows with Grandma I.  You love coloring.  You don’t mind if it is a coloring book or a blank paper.  You love to play the music loud & just dance around the house.  You use your scooter to get all around the house…sometimes I think you forget you can walk without wheels!  We can’t wait to see what you can do on your new skates! (thanks Grandma M!)  You love school.  You want to go to dance class…which IS happening this summer!  The weather is now getting warmer, and you are psyched to get out of your tights & leggings and wear your dresses & skirts like a real spring baby!  You have a wacky, cool, eclectic fashion sense that sometimes means you leave the house looking like a maniac & other times a fashion model!  You love taking pictures with my camera & you are really really good.  You love dessert but you also love to tell me the danger of sugary things for your teeth!

You are the happiest girl.  Until you’re not.  You talk about your tantrums as “freaking out” and you need some hugs to get yourself calmed down.  Once you calm down…you are sweet a sugar again.   Sometimes we get frustrated, and we have to understand that you do too!  You really hate when we interrupt you…and you respond much better to active listening!

No matter what happens in this crazy life Miss A…Daddy, Baby D & I love you more than you can ever imagine.  We can’t wait to see where this life takes you brave girl…watching you live life is such a privilege & an honor.

Here you are on your 4th birthday Miss A….more beautiful than ever.  and standing in the classic “Grandma” pose….something my Grandma that you are named after perfected.  I know you’re making her beam with pride up above the clouds!
