In our family, it has turned into a tradition that you get portraits on your birthday. Since we were too busy playing Red Rover, getting all muddy, and eating rainbow cake with macaroni & cheese yesterday, I thought Empress and I could take care of her photos this morning.

HAHA!!! look at those goosebumps- BRRR!!!






But wait....Where did this cold come from??? BRR!!  As Empress shivered in the chair on our patio,  I quickly took a few photos in honor of her fourth birthday. Two minutes later we were under a blanket watching Maisy again and life was good.

This year is special. Empress is not only our youngest, but our last child & this is our last year at home together before she too is off to school with the rest of the kids.






 I will miss our afternoon picnics, and the kind of conversations one can really only have with a four -year-old. I often get caught up in the day- to -day: the cooking, the laundry, the homework, but every now and then one of them hits a milestone, or has a moment that makes me take pause-  a moment that allows me to feel and appreciate the magnitude of being a parent. 

Happy Birthday Snuggle Bear!
