Turning Four

It has been another long hiatus. I have more excuses. Mom came to visit. Little Miss had multiple birthday parties. It was a full and chaotic week. But I can't let any more time pass before documenting the fact that our little girl is not so little anymore. She had her 4th birthday on Saturday. Then she had her doctor's check up yesterday. Not only is she not little, she is actually in the 75-90 percentile for her height. In fact in the last 4 months she has grown almost four inches! It seems like just yesterday she was tiny enough to sleep in a baby swing. 
Then, just days after this (her first birthday) she started walking. 

By the time her 2nd birthday rolled around she had already become a "big" sister.
And by the time she turned 3, she had already been in preschool for 6 months. 
 And here she is on her fourth birthday. Riding a real bike with training wheels, going to preschool 3 days a week and starting pre-K in August.
Everyone says it goes so fast, enjoy it while it lasts, blah, blah, blah. But seriously the last 4 years have gone in a blink of an eye. I vividly remember on the day she was born when they handed me a blanket in the shape of a burrito and how she had managed to poke out one tiny finger because she refused to be completely swaddled. Many things haven't changed a bit. She is still stubborn, strong willed and gorgeous. And even though she makes me say those mother type things that you never expected yourself to say, she amazes me on a daily basis. We are so lucky to have this wonderful girl in our lives. Happy Birthday Little Miss.
