How have 4 years gone by since Emma was born?!?! It is hard to believe we have a 4 year old living in our house. She is the most helpful, considerate, responsible, and caring 4 year old I know. (I know I might be bias..... but I'm serious!) She is always filling up a glass of water for one of us, helping set the table, asking if we are okay, wanting just to talk, and many other things. We can't imagine life without this little lady. Here are some pictures from her birthday party when Jay's parents were in town the other weekend.
If you know anything about Emma, you know she loves wearing dresses and princesses. So, I decided to make a Belle birthday cake for her. She was quite surprised.....

became very concerned for Belle. Quick picture
was taken and Belle was rescued. :)
The more this girl grows up, the more she teaches me, the simple things in life are the best. All she wanted to do for her birthday was watch the sunrise and go to the Science Center with her family.
The Science Center is way more fun when Dad comes with.
If you can't tell, making rockets with Dad is always her favorite part of going to the SC.
We asked her over and over again if there was any place special she wanted to go for dinner or an ice cream snack for her birthday. Yet again, she is our simple girl and wanted to have pizza and ice cream cones at home in our pjs.
Emma continues to amaze us with her personality and heart. I'm sure we are in for quite a ride with this girl as she teaches us things every day.
