My Baby Baby is Four

Wow! I can no longer even refer to her as a toddler anymore. Seriously, this is hitting a little hard. (sniff!) Since she entered our world four years ago on a hot, July day, Ron and I have been tickled by her in our lives. All my efforts to coax her out early, proved to be an indication of this sweet child's future disposition- she can be quite stubborn LOL. However, she has taught me a lot. After having her brother before her, I think I loosened up and learned to enjoy the process a lot more with Bella. I have learned about the multiple ways to treat her fickle, sensitive skin. Most recently I have stumbled on a fabulous eczema salve that is sold by The Herb Store in Albuquerque. I have had to learn to work fine, curly hair without her walking out looking like she snuck her finger into a socket. I have learned to let loose on all things girly that I completely fought against before she was born. She loves princesses and squeals with delight about all things pink, sparkly, and fuzzy, what can I say? She has taught me to love pink again, as evidenced by the pink, blinged out cross tank I am sporting. You probably WOULD NOT have found me in anything like that before she was born. She has taught me that taking time to paint our nails is a bit of a priority. And most of all, that a smile can melt hearts, primarily hers. Thank you, Lord for this sweet wonder.
