Quatre. Yay!

I just realized that this post could be taken 2 ways.

Either newbaby2010 ver.4.0 has arrived or Annika
Is 4 years old today.

Well, my little Princess is a very big FOUR!
This post is dedicated to you my sweet one (blog visitors, thank you for indulging me)

I have to tell you that when I look at the picture of you above,
(1 day old)
I just smile and smile.
What a precious little angel.

Four is a very special age.
Very soon you will become a big sister and with it
comes BIG responsibilities.

You will need to share what you have learned
with your baby sister.

Let her know that it is important to keep
singing her song.
Especially as she gets older.

You are full of joy and joy is contagious.

Let her know that it is important to run her race.
Competition will come at her and the only one you need to compete
with is yourself.
It makes for a much happier life as you get older.

Let her know that it is important to stay true to yourself.
Be who God created you to be.
Let her know that she is an original just as you are.

Let her know the little things are important.


Of course, chocolate cake

and castles.
You are a girl after my heart with your love of castles and
of course Princesses.
When you said yesterday that you looked "just like a Princess",
it warmed my heart.

You are perfect in every way.
You have a generous heart, a marvelous sense of humor,
and you are filled with LOVE.

As you grow older, keep those traits and share them with others.
That is what counts.

Happy Birthday sweet Annika.
We love you so much and can't wait to see you again.

Much love from Grandma, Grandpa Ray, and Uncle J.W.

How quickly our grand children grow as you so rightly say. Also a reminder of how time flies for us too.
