Happy 4th birthday Naomi!

I cannot believe that you are 4 years old already! You are growing up way too fast. Stay my baby for a little while longer ok? I am not ready for you to be a big girl yet.

Every day Naomi says to me in a frustrated tone, "why is it taking so long for me to grow up?". I remember feeling just like that. She is so mature for her age it is hard to believe she is only 4 years old. We still haven't decided whether to send her to kindergarten next year or not. I think she is very ready. The other day we were talking and she says to me, "mom, feel your nose, do you feel that soft bone? That's called cartilage. There is some in your ears too." She is forever saying stuff like this. She is freeking hilarious sometimes. She is still having a bit of issues with being away from me but she is doing great in swimming lessons and music class.

On Saturday she is having a couple of friends over for her very first friends birthday party. She goes to a daycare of 6 kids of which more than half are babies so she doesn't have a whole lot of friends her age. 2 of her friends who went on to kindergarten will be coming and she is so looking forward to seeing them. Then she is off to her friend Layla's birthday party on Sunday - her daycare friend is 3 days younger than her.

It's been a busy couple of days - more birthday pictures to follow!

So much to be thankful for ...

Disney on ice - Princesses and heros

We just got back from the Disney on ice show. We had bought tickets months ago as a surprise for Naomi. We had a blast getting ready (we tried to replicate the Belle hair do) and talking about what we thought the show would be like. She was mesmerized from start to finish and I got so much joy from just watching her.
