My daughter Amelia turns four today. Last year I wrote her birth story here.
I am still amazed at her. She is smart and witty and though she will laugh and be silly, she's one of the more serious of the bunch.
I think three and four are my favorite ages, even if they have their own challenges. We had a great time yesterday celebrating her birthday. The long road to the next town over is briming with wild flowers so we stopped to take some birthday photos. She had a marvelous time picking the ones that caught her eye.
Then we visisted a friend whos cat had kittens a few months ago and picked one out. It's been a long time since we have had a kitten in the house.
I made her special request of a "flat cake with yellow frosting with strawberries, sprinkles and four candles" from Smitten Kitchen's Lemon Cake recipe. It was a wild success.
She passed out in her bed about five minues after lights out. Being four is a lot of work.
Happy Birthday my big girl.
