4

Four years ago my life changed forever. Four years ago my heart loved like I never knew it could. Four years ago I cried happy tears while a stared at the most beautiful baby ever. Four years ago my role in life changed. Four years ago you made me a mommy!!

You turned FOUR today! Oh my! I think back at my thoughts when I first brought you home from the hospital. I don't think I could have ever imagined what these last four years had in store for me. You are quite the character. You are finishing up your first year of school (pre-school). You loved school, made lots of friends and I am glad to report that you didn't get into too much trouble! You are Miss Independent with a sassy attitude. (of course, mommy is trying mold that sassy attitude into a more lady like attitude) ;) There have been moments that I have been so mad at you that I swear I couldn't even speak and moments that I have laughed so hard that I couldn't speak! You became a big sister to another brother this year and you LOVE it. You are my little helper as I get a bottle ready. Of course, mommy keeps reminding you that we don't carry the baby around the house! Your other brother can sometimes bug you, there are many more years of this, but he has reached an age of co-play! He sometimes lets big sis boss him around and he doesn't mind. One of mommy's favorite sounds is to hear you two laughing in the toy room together. You are always telling me that you love your brothers so much.:) You are great a playing by yourself also. You have a very creative imagination. You love to play pretend house and oddly enough always making sure your "honey" (kid) is behaving!

You are filled with endless energy and bring so much joy to our lives. No matter how old you get you will always be my little stinker. Oh sorry, you always remind me " I am not a stinker I am a sweetie pie!" We love you sweetie pie. Happy Birthday Ella Bella!

This picture taken when you were 18 months old. I should have taken a hint by what your shirt said. It was giving me some advice for when you turned three!!
