Can she really be 4 years old???…

Just call me Mother of the Year.  There was a birthday in our house 2 weeks ago and I am just now getting around to documenting it… geesh! 

My one and only girl is no longer what I would consider a toddler.  Why is there such a huge difference between 3 and 4?  You tell people you have a 3 year old and they’re still little… kind of on the tail end of toddler-hood… Then all of a sudden overnight (literally) you have a 4 year old.  An almost-ready-for-school-totally-independent-ready-to-take-over-all-things-that-used-to-be-mom’s-job 4 YEAR OLD!  Our Branson trip always falls very close to Sass-erella’s birthday.  --We’ve been calling her that since she was tiny and now she’s developed this strong attraction toward the REAL Cinderella…. go figure…  IMG_8400

Anyway, we celebrated a few days early while in Branson…

This pinata had NO idea what he was in for…

Of course her actual birthday (June 15) was a few days after we got back and so of course the BIG EVENT seemed to turn into a week long celebration.  Doesn’t it always??? :-) ….

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!  I can’t believe you’re 4!  Your dad went into your room the night of June 14th to kiss you goodnight.  Before he did, he told me he was going in to kiss his 3 year old daughter goodnight for the last time.  Of course I cried.  You’re growing up too fast but I sure am loving watching my one and only daughter keep developing into such a strong, independent, determined young lady…. sometimes a little too determined…

just a little tiny eensy weensy bit:-)

Happy Birthday Sawyer! There are some wonderful pictures in your mix. (All are good but I have faves.) They are:
The profile pic of Porter with his cape. He has grown so much!
Sawyer in the background blurred out with the cake ingredients in the front. LOVE her expression!
The princess with the gun - hilarious!!
Looks like a fun party!

Ok the Sawyer Get Your Gun picture is freaking hysterical and my Porter Dude with the "shoes" priceless!

You are still going to let me take my girl on Friday morning aren't you? Tuck can come over and play with Reece if he wants too!

Sawyer already looks older in the pictures. How does that happen?
Totally love the pictures! Sawyer with the glove, shoes, and being all girlie with that gun is hilarious! I love that girl! Love the bling you made for her. So cute!

Alright, I was fine until the story of Daddy going in to kiss his 3 year old good night. Ugh. Tears. What sweet babies you have. And yes, they do grow rather quickly! :)
