She Keeps Growing

Four years old.
We can't believe how grown up you are.
You are a lovely young lady.


One who loves to dress up in fancy shoes, dresses & scarves.
One who loves to be a helpful big sister.
One who loves to explore outside & find little insects to love.
One who gets excited about hearing about God.

You are brave about riding your bike now.
You love learning your letters in school.
You have a great memory.
You have tons of opinions, about most everything.


You like to pretend you are cooking outside,
collecting herbs & flowers for your soups.
You have a pillow sack filled with treasures
that you like to take out with you.
You had a few garlic chive blossoms in there for days.
Your room smelled like skunk.  But, you didn't notice.

You love your brother & sister a whole bunch.
And, they love you & they loved your birthday cupcakes, too.

Happy Birthday Gillian! Sorry we forgot to call today, I kept thinking Gillian's bday is tomorrow- but that is Emmy's! So many birthdays all in a row. Anyway, we can't wait for the party! (Also, I love that huge smile picture, looks a lot like pictures of you when you were her age!!)
