My sweet girl turned four this past weekend. It's wildly bittersweet. I think the majority of that is simply because she isn't a typical toddler to me, she's worldly and wise, and far beyond her years. She is certainly not a baby anymore. I've loved watching her grow into the fierce and wild girl she is, it's a powerful experience to say the least.
I'm equally thankful that our closest and dearest friends came through for our girl and showered her with love, along with things she loves. It was all simple and nice, which seems to be what we all needed. I think at this point in our lives, we are soaking all of these milestones in. As our friends have babies, are pregnant, own their homes now, and continue doing life with us... We feel this is really what it's all about.
Happy birthday my sweet Kate.
