Today was the day - our little lady turned 4!!! She woke up and did something she NEVER does - crawled in bed beside me. I had a half hour just to lay there and watch my sweet girl sleep - a rare and touching treat! I couldn't help but think that on the other side of the world another momma lay remembering 4 short years ago when she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I can not say enough how brave I think that mom was - and how grateful I am for her bravery. We are blessed because of that mom's goodness.
We had quite the day - Chloe had her hair curled and toenails and fingernails painted by daddy. We ate at her restaurant of choice - Chinese!! We opened gifts - she had a blast! AND yes, she got her coveted "spinny chair" - purple even! (Is this the only 4 year old that wanted a spinny computer chair for her birthday??) She LOVED, LOVED, LOVED her cake - a princess cake - and did NOT want candles on her OR to cut her! (But yes, we won that one!!) Then we ended our fun day with a bike ride. I am sure Chloe wishes everyday were her birthday!! We had a fun one!
