Fabulous Four

My baby girl turned four years old today and it just blows me away. Before I know it she will be graduating from high school! Ashlyn is a joy in my life and here are a few things about her at four:
  • She is hilarious and keeps me laughing every day.
  • She loves to help me in the kitchen, which I love. I love baking and cooking with her by my side.
  • She is a good sister. Of course they fight (what siblings don't?), but they also play together really well and are best friends.
  • She is smart. Watch out what you say and do around her, because she is a sponge and will remember and repeat everything!
  • She is a horrible listener! It is amazing how well she can tune me out and completely ignore me until I am yelling to get her attention! She is definitely teaching me patience.
  • She loves preschool and hates primary. Maybe "hate" is too strong, but she has cried, whined, and made multiple escapes.
  • She is slowly learning to like vegetables.
  • She loves Backyardigans (more on that later), has just started taking an interest in "princesses", and still has a special place in her heart for horses.
  • She has a very healthy sweet tooth.
  • She adores her cousins.
  • She has become quite a fan of pina coladas.
  • She can be both very outgoing and shy when meeting new people, it just depends on her current mood.
  • She can't wait for the new baby to come and has promised to be a very good helper.
There is so much more I could say, but it is late and has been a long day. I will write more later about her special day and party. For now, here is a look at how she has grown:

Birthday: 3-11-06
1st Birthday: 3-11-07
2nd Birthday: 3-11-08
3rd Birthday: 3-11-09
4th Birthday: 3-11-10
I love you so much Ashlyn and can't imagine life without you. Thank you for being you!
