Happy 4th

Some people say it goes fast. And it does in a way - they grow and change so quickly it's amazing to behold. But in another way it slows the passage of time down to a crawl. It feels like we've been parents forever, or at least longer than four years. And it all started with her:

Hazel turned 4 yesterday. Thursday night we had a family party with dinner, cake* and presents.Ginger couldn't stand it so we relit the candles for her. And she was heavily involved in the present-opening.

At preschool Hazel was the special person of the week all week, with her pictures on the bulletin board. And then on her actual birthday she was the special helper and I was the cooperator so I could bring cupcakes* and take pictures. As usual, it was all unbelievably cute.

I've been telling her "I love you" more often the last few days. They're pathetically inadequate words but I know she understands the feelings I'm trying to convey because she looks me in the eye and smiles big each time. She knows I think she's amazing. She knows I love her to death. And she knows being a 4-year-old is super hot stuff.

*What did we bake for Hazel's birthday? I'll post them this week on The VGP.

Happy Birthday Hazel. Hilde says this means that Hazel is definitely taller than Enoch since she is older. I told her we will check her theory when you are here in May!
