four

four years
i can't believe you big you are
how much you've grown, your legs
they dangle down past my knees when i hold you.
how funny you are (you make us laugh so hard we ache)
you are filled with joy
and compassion, you greet others with hugs and help them up when they fall
you are earnest in your exploration and your belly laughs are music.
my heart has never been more full,
overwhelmed
in awe of you
my precious baby girl
today we celebrate you.

happy birthday baby.

The joy.

How much you make me long for my own daughter. Notsosage can deliver her and you can be her soul advisor.

ah. happy birthday to the sweet girl. give her a big hug from me and tell her that Monkey still keeps saying her name (insanely clearly), obviously thinking about her. Ah well, one day, hopefully sooner rather than later they will play again. xo

OOOH, I love a four-year-old! Just the right blend of still-baby-but-starting-to-be-a-fascinating-individual. Yum.

Mad said...

Oh heck! I missed this b/c of my weekends off policy. Happy, happy belated birthday dear girl.
