First Birthday: the child really doesn't know what's going on so this birthday really just celebrates the parents achievements in making it through the first 12 months.
Second Birthday: the child is a mixture of curiosity and mild excitement.
Third Birthday: the child all of the sudden clues in to what birthdays are actually about and the very next day starts counting down to...
The Fourth Birthday!! And oh, is it exciting!! :)
At least that's how it was for this little girl...
She had her dance class in the afternoon. She was so excited to wear her new ballet outfit that our missionary associate brought with her.
And we were able to bring cupcakes for all of her friends to share. So fun!
After a supper of pancakes (by her choosing), we had her regular cake.
We praise the Lord for this little girl. She is such a delight to our family! When I recently asked her "Why does God want to take you to heaven when you die?" She answered, "Because God wants princesses!" I'm so thankful for her sweet, cheerful spirit. It is such a joy to watch her grow! Hard to believe my "baby" is four!!
