She's 4!

I’m wishing you another year
Of laughter, joy and fun,

Surprises, love and happiness,
And when your birthday’s done,

I hope you feel deep in your heart,
As your birthdays come and go,

How very much you mean to me,
More than you can know.

Here's saying congratulations and a huge "I Love You" to an amazing, creative, comical, smart, beautiful four year old. Here are four things I love about you at age four!

1. Your dramatics. I mean, really - you could win an oscar for your performance of Barbie in peril. It's always entertaining.

2. Your love of ME! You had me wrapped around your finger from day one because of your natural affection towards me. You and I may have little disagreements that you really don't like, but it's still me you want tucking you into bed at night.

3. Your love of accessories. You are a fashionista in the making, and it's so fun. You love wearing flowers in your hair, wearing dresses EVERY DAY you can, and even going so far as to sneak my necklaces on when you think I'm not looking.

4. Your sense of humor. It's not unusual to see our entire family laughing and in stitches over your jokes and antics. Even your "way cool" older sisters think you're hilarious.

I hope you have an amazing day, JJ, and always feel how much you are loved.

I love you, JJ!
