Happy Birthday, Miss Gator!

Photobucket

Four years ago today I gave birth to the most amazing little girl ever...

I knew at the time I was blessed...

its just I'm not sure if I realized HOW blessed I was.

I know I didn't think four years ago I'd be where I am today...I'm not sure I even thought about her growing up past the baby stage...

I hung a sign up and wrapped a present (the dress she's wearing in the other picture) and then made sticky buns...

The girls entertained Achoo while the breakfast was being prepped...

Yes, we stuck a candle in the bun and sang! Then, she wanted another sticky bun...with another candle...and yes, Happy Birthday! We also had to stick a candle in her chicken per request for lunch...

They helped me make cake...and then took a nap...

What's the rest of the night going to bring? Well, steak for dinner! Then some cake...and who knows! She's looking forward to her birthday party with everyone else AND because she's so stinkin' cute she called both sets of grandparents to let them know it was her birthday today!!!

she is SO beautiful!!! can't believe she's 4. I remember the day she was born just like it was yesterday. it's amazing how much she has grown up even in the past year. makes me want to have a dozen kiddos...childhood is so fleeting. sniff, sniff!

Happy Birthday sweet Abby! She looks like she's a great big sister and she was such a beautiful baby, as well as little girl! I love her Daddy pillow! So cute. And, she eats steak? Wow!

I remember your marathon birth of your beautiful girl. I can't believe it's been 4 years. Crazy! I love reading about her and I loved meeting her. I hope to see you guys soon... I know our schedules are kind of crazy and you JUST had a baby, but I'll see if I can make it happen some time soon! Happy Birthday, Gator! <3
