Happy Birthday Baby!

Today was my little baby's birthday. My little baby turned 4. She's definitely the baby since she's the youngest of my four kids. It makes me sad because when my other three kids turned four, I either had a younger child or one in the oven. I'd love to have more kids, but I don't know if I could afford it, or be able to handle the work!

So anyway, my little baby, I mean big girl had so much fun. She jumped up and down and clapped her hands together just picking out her ice cream cake. We stopped at Toys R Us to get her birthday treat. If you join the birthday club there, they send you a $3.00 off any purchase coupon and a ticket for a birthday treat - a crown, stickers, balloon, and strawberry shaped sunglasses.

We just had our family over for cake (my parents, aunt, and mother-in-law). She was thrilled over everything she got, Full House season 5, Barbies, princess costumes, dress-up shoes, Strawberry Shortcake dolls, etc. It's so fun to buy for her because she loves everything! I couldn't calm her down! I know it was a happening party, but cool it a little! Thankfully she fell right to sleep. That was an exhausting day. Next I'll be deciding where to send her for preschool, another bittersweet moment.

Now about my son and the girl who hit him over the head. This morning when we got in the car, he started talking right from where we left off yesterday!

"Mom, guess what? That girl hit me again! I scare her in the halls and she hits me!"

"Well make sure you never tell on her, or she'll tell on you!"

The scaring game. He loves to scare the girls, even his own sister and cousins. Usually the girls hate the game. This girl must like it, I hope!

Oh I know what you mean. I'm excited to be moving to the next phase of life in our family, but it so sad to see them growing up. I wish I could travel back in time just to visit those sweet babies again. Happy 4th Birthday!

Happy 4th birthday! I also have a four year old, it's such a fun age. It sounds like a great day.

Happy Birthday to your smallest small. And that's great news on your son - it's a relationship (of sorts)! With a girl! x

Happy Birthday to your littlest one! 4 was so fun! I'm glad the mystery was solved!

Irene said...

What do you mean "he even likes to scare his sister and cousins". I think that should be rephrased to ESPECIALLY his sister and cousins!

I can't believe the littlest one is 4 and ready for preschool!? Holy cow. So sad. Soon there won't be any more weekday visits with the kids...because they will ALL be in school....maybe we need more? You go first.

I can't believe she is 4 already! Time flies. Tell her I, said "Happy Birhtday!" I think the "Spirited " child is starting to like girls, or at least their reactions to his scaring them.

My oldest turns 4 next weekend. *Sigh* I'm not ready for her to grow up.
Happy birthday to your daughter. It sounds like she had a wonderful day.

I love this ongoing saga about your boy. It's amazing that "If they tease you, it means they like you" still rings true.

Good luck forging a relationship with your new SIL. After reflecting I've noticed that my SIL and I are so close because we make time for each other whenever the families get together. I have another SIL that I don't do this with (and she lives 5 miles from me) the relationship isn't as strong.
