There she is – our four year old! Its amazing how much she has grown. Her arm now is as long as her whole body was when she was born! She had a great day – we went swimming at an indoor pool for a good hour. She loved floating on her back in the water – which had a definite current – and then pulling herself back along the wall. We went for a wagon ride and then had pizza for dinner.
We had a party for her the night before with all the fixin’s – balloons, cake with frosting, candles, party hats and, oh yeah, presents. She chose white cake with pink frosting. She won’t tell me what she wished for when she blew out the candles. She got lots of cards and phone calls and felt very special all day.
The next day, it snowed! It was the perfect way (to Myla) to wrap up a birthday weekend. She got to make footprints, a snow penguin and a snow ball. She really had fun this year in the first snow. Then we had to go to the doctor. Official stats for 4 years old – 35 1/2 inches tall (almost three feet) and 26 pounds 10 ounces. (I tell you what, some days I think Kinsley is already at 26 pounds.)
I admit, I got emotional on her birthday. She is so smart and sweet and fun. Its hard to imagine that just one fraction the other way… But here she is. Four years old. And very excited to be so. I can’t wait to see what this year will bring for her.
