Tonight I put to bed my precious little four year old baby girl. Tomorrow she wakes up a big five year old girl.
I feel like this is such a milestone birthday. Past the cusp of the baby years. Full speed ahead to the "big kid" adventures that lie ahead.
Birdie was the baby that brought me many tears....before she was ever conceived. My heart longed for her before she was mine. I was so impatient in my days waiting for the blessing to be her mother. I knew my family wouldn't be complete without another little baby to keep Lovebug, Hubby and I company. I can still remember the morning I found out I was pregnant with her. Lovebug had a "sleepover" with me so Hubby had slept in the guest bedroom. I snuck out of bed to take the test, heart beating, praying and hoping that finally this test was different than all the previous ones. In those brief moments you make all kinds of wagers with God. Begging, pleading. And there it was. Positive. And nothing has ever been the same.
Happy Birthday, Birdie. I'm enjoying having this opportunity to watch you learn how to spread your wings and fly. Many new adventures await you!
