4 years ago today, your dad and I were preparing for you to enter the world and change our lives forever. We had no idea what it was going to be like to have a baby. When you finally came, we couldn't believe it! You were so beautiful and we instantly fell in love. Since then, you have grown into a beautiful, SMART, funny, caring little girl. You are the best big sis, you are always taking care of Claire and worrying about her. You love reading, and you can already read some books! You are quite the little artist, always drawing elaborate pictures of dinosaurs, flowers, and your family. You are SO smart, you are always asking questions about things and using reasoning I didn't know a 4-year old would have! You are very cautious in every situation - you think things out and you don't like to take risks or do things that scare you. Once you have made the decision to try something though, you always love it. You act like you like watching movies, but you usually only make it through about 30 minutes. You love playing on the iPad, and would literally play for hours on the computer if we'd let you. You have a zest for life that most adults wish they had. You are always excited, and always learning. You love playing on the playground, going to Jump Mania and the Discovery Center. You like to pick out your own clothes (even though mommy doesn't always agree with your style!) You love princesses and dressing up. My favorite thing you do right now is put on a "rock & roll show" - you dance around and say "Oh ya! Oh ya!" You don't like most foods - you will mainly eat "chips and cheese" from Mexican Villa, Totino's pizza rolls, and sometimes chicken and fries. You will not try a new food, you absolutely refuse - even if you will get ice cream afterwards! Your best friend is Aaron, but next week you will start your new preschool, so you won't see Aaron every day. But I know you will make a lot of new friends, and you will learn so much! You are really excited to start your new school, and I know you will love it.
I am so lucky to be your mommy. I love you more than anything, and I am so proud of the sweet smart little girl you've become. I can't wait to see what the next years hold for you! Happy Birthday sweet girl, I love you!

P.S. I can't get the pictures to line up, so they're all wonky. :)
