I cannot believe you are four years old today. Four. As in: one, two, three, FOUR Years Old. As in, not a baby, not a toddler; but a full fledged little girl.
The difference in you these days, compared to last year, is just mind-boggling. Your grasp on life, both in a conceptual and practical way of thinking is so impressive. You are so, so smart, which we always knew, but now you showcase your brilliance in ways I never imagined.
Your imaginative play, story telling, song writing, tune singing, the list goes on. Your creativity truly knows no bounds.
Watching you soak in every detail of your world makes my own world a little more bright and vibrant.
You are such an individual. And your confidence in yourself inspires my own self-confidence. Yes, you're quirky...
We call you the "accidental leader" because of your tendency to do whatever feels right for you and how everyone around you seems to fall in line.
Yes, the last year has been a little challenging; mostly because of your fiery spirit and incredible determination to achieve your goals (no matter how big or small). It's hard to set limits for a kiddo who can outsmart me, or find a loop hole in every argument.
Mostly though, the last year has been such a joy to watch you develop into this tiny human who will do such big things some day. You have always been the center of my world, from your first tiny, kitten cry. But now, I see glimpses of how our relationship may be a friendship in the future and it makes my heart so happy.
I love you more than you can imagine!
Happy FOURTH Birthday!
