4 Years Old

Today Boogers turns 4.

I have a four year old.

That's just crazy to me. She has been waiting for months for her birthday so she is totally thrilled that it is finally here. She knew that she had to wait for mine, then her Daddy's and then it was hers. So consequently since the end of October she has been obsessing. It started way earlier than that but I had to make a count down calendar so that she would stop asking me every day, "Is today my birthday?" This morning when we told her it was her birthday and she was finally 4 she said, "I'm done with three?" She couldn't believe her birthday was finally here.

Boogers is both a joy and a challenge in our family and I love her for everything. Here are just a few things about her on her special day.

She loves her blankies and smells them- whom she calls "Pink" and "Yellow"

She loves plain tortillas, spoonfuls of peanut butter and cereal

She has become a Princess fanatic and is having a Princess birthday party

We have to read her 3 books every night. She loves books

She loves music and learns songs very quickly

Lately she has been a big "helper". She wants to help Mom do everything

She loves "twirly" dresses. It's not a dress unless it twirls

She doesn't want to get bigger. She always wants to stay "her size"

Life would not be the same in our family without our sweet Boogers and I am so grateful I have her. Happy Birthday Princess!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from her life:
