january 30th











january 30th was a very big day for us.
our little one.... the baby in the family... turned four.
four has always been this huge milestone for me. an age where i actually notice a giant change in the ease of family life. it is certainly bittersweet with miss ollie jane being our last little one. 
i always thought i might have five or so... knew i wanted a big family... but there was a point after she came along where i knew that i had hit my max... i even felt a bit "in over my head" for awhile. that is where it really is so sweet because i do not feel that anymore. four feels absolutely perfect... four kids... a four year old baby... this is my whole world... and i love it.

now to carry on the birthday tradition...

four things i love about my four year old

  1. i love the way she begs for "just one more story" each night... and then after i read one more... she begs for another.
  2. i love the smell of her breath and the tickle of her hair when she comes to steal my pillow every morning.
  3. i love that such a fierce personality can come in such a small package.
  4. i love the little things that make her so unique... a love and talent for puzzles (starting at the age of two)... a fluent tongue in monkey babble... a taste for goat cheese spread on cucumbers.
this girl... so special... so sweet... so loved.

happy birthday ollie jane... we all love you so much!

So cute, I forget how sweet 4 is. I can imagine there were times when 4 kids were overwhelming!

How wonderful to have four children. I was one of 7 and I have great memories of growing up. I love that you seem to enjoy being a mom so much. Lucky children have you for their mom.
