4 Years Old!

I cannot believe that Abby is 4 years old. She is turning into such a wonderful young lady. She loves to play with her friends and loves to talk to her grandparents on the phone. She still sleeps with Orange the cat and Hammerhead the... well, you know... hammerhead shark. She has a real innate understanding and love for all animals. She loves reading books and is starting to sound out words for herself. She picks out her own clothes and gets dressed by herself. She can wash herself in the bath (although she still needs help washing hair), is totally potty trained and is getting really good at making up songs and stories. She has a strong will and is stubborn (wonder where she gets that from) and she is really funny. Her favourite color is pink and her favourite food is pasta. She has a love for Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father and a real desire to learn new things. Paul and I are so glad she is a part of our family.

This morning, we had her new doll house book case all set up in the living room with her prezzies stacked on the shelves. Her face was so cute as she saw it. She opened each gift and really savored each moment. Then we just had some cupcakes as she is getting a big cake next week for her Dinosaur Party but we put them on a special plate that was her great-grandmother's. When we got home from church, she just couldn't wait to play with all of her new things and integrate the old with the new. She had her choice for dinner and she picked lasagna. All and all a really nice birthday for our not-so-little girl.

Absolutely precious. She is such a sweet girl---that comes through in her expressions and in your description of her. I'm sure that someday she'll love reading what her Mom wrote about her on her 4th birthday. Looks like a really nice birthday---I loved how you put the presents in the dollhouse.
