She's 4!

Today is the big day, the day we've all been waiting for, the day Robynn turns 4! This is the first year Robynn has understood the real excitement behind her very own day, and the excitement was awesome.

It took a little bit to get the wee one out of bed this morning, but with promises of surprises awaiting downstairs, we were soon on our way. All Robynn asked for from us this year was a balloon and a sucker - since she got the sucker yesterday when she visited me at work, we needed a balloon. We got two! She was just tickled when she saw her special balloons this morning flying over her breakfast chair.

But the biggest giggle came when she saw the 4 dozen cupcakes waiting for her and her friends on the counter! Robynn got to take some cupcakes to her preschool, and we had plenty left over for all of our friends that we play with in our townhouse complex this evening.

I looked at Robynn this evening as asked her if she had thanked me yet. So she thanked me for the cupcakes. "No," I said. "You need to thank me for giving birth to you." "Oh! Thank you for the cupcakes." Well maybe another year... But since we're remembering, here's a shot of our angel on the day she was born. I really can't believe it's been four years already.

Happy Birthday Robynn. You are loved.

Okay, every time I look at that last photo I get all emotional...how does time go so quickly?

What a precious, precious gift!
