I don't quite know how it happened, but my little Amelia isn't so little anymore. I can't believe she is four! She has been talking about her birthday for months (as all little kids do) and has been very specific about having a princess birthday with a princess cake and exactly which princesses should be on it. Plus, she wanted 2 purple balloons, 2 pink balloons and 1 princess balloon. Of course, I obliged. She was very excited to have her Grandmas and Grandpas and Aunts, Uncles and Cousins come and share in the festivities.
I really can't believe how quickly she is growing up. Considering that I've been changing diapers daily for the past 91/2 years, sometimes I get caught up in the slowness of the days and don't realize how quickly time is flying by. I am trying to enjoy these days as much as I can with these sweet little girls, because Jonas is already so big, I feel like I missed out on a lot of the enjoyment aspect with him since I was so busy learning how to be a mom. (This does not mean that I have yet learned how to be a good mom - somewhere along the way, I figured out I would always be learning. We'll see if I ever achieve.)
Anyway, Happy Birthday Amelia!
