Happy Birthday, Baby!

12 Jan

I couldn’t let the day go by without shouting from the rooftops that our girl is FOUR YEARS OLD! Holy cow! I’m sure there are some of you who remember this day four years ago…My pregnancy hadn’t necessarily been smooth sailing- I hadn’t been able to breathe since October, Neve had been mashing on a major artery for months which meant that I’d been passing out in random places since before Thanksgiving (bless John’s heart- one night he was rubbing BioOil on my belly and thought I died!), I hadn’t slept in weeks…So we went to our regular doctor’s appointment this morning and by complete chance, I happened to cough during the exam. Doc looked at me and asked, ‘When did your water break?!’ I had no clue of any leak! Ha! So we headed across the street to the hospital…

Isn’t she the most perfect thing you’ve ever seen? ❤

I can’t believe we threw her fourth birthday party this past weekend. It was definitely different than in years past where it was a huge to-do, tons of people, (lots of work 🙂 ), but in so many ways, it was absolutely perfect. Neve had told me months ago that she wanted a ‘Rainbow My Little Pony Cake,’ so we went with that. We invited over just a few of our friends (we knew she’d be having another celebration with her school friends today) to play and eat her favorite snacks, and yes, the cake. We played and we talked and we laughed and we ate Cheese Puffs and we opened presents from all the people who love her, near and far. It was wonderful and she declared it ‘Best Birthday Ever!’ just as she has every birthday since she was born. ❤

Aunt Sam must know us so well- sends us the kit to MAKE the banner rather one that’s already done. ❤

Seriously, what a wonderful day celebrating our girl! Thank you to our friends here who helped to make the day- and our life here- so full of happy. And thank you, Mom and Grandma, for staying to be part of our day. And finally, I know I’ve said this before, but I want to say it again- THANK YOU to all of you who follow along with our story- for loving our girl and not being afraid to show it. You rock.

Now, I can’t wait to pick her up from school in a few hours and see how Cupcake Baking (we took the supplies, the class is going to make them!) went! And before I go, here’s the link to a quick little look back, set to one of my favorite tunes. Just click the play button on the picture. https://flipagram.com/f/icOaj9sJuB
