Four. Wow. How did that happen?

"You know," I said to Thalia, as I cuddled her in my lap last night, "this time four years ago you were still in my belly juuuust about ready to come out. I didn't know you yet and I was so excited to meet you, especially because I wasn't a mommy yet. And that's partly why July 6 is so special to me - because I wasn't a mommy yet until that day."

"Right. You were just a womens."

"I was just a womens."

Happy birthday my beautiful girl. And thank you for transforming me from just a womens into something that's pretty darn nice.

Happy birthday to your little gal and happy birth-day to you. 4 was an exciting one and kind of hard... It meant the end of toddler-dom and the beginning of officially being a kid.

Happy birthday, you beautiful girl!

Isn't it crazy?! No longer a baby or toddler and now a CHILD. Gasp.

Welcome to 4! It's a good year, but turns quickly to that magic number "going to school" 5.

But as far as I'm concerned, they're still babies for as long as their knuckles are pudgy and dimpled.

Sorry we missed it this year. Q keeps saying "But I told Thalia I would be there..."

Can't believe she's 4. Congrats on your 4th year as an awesome mama.

Awww! Happy 4th Birthday to your darling, beautiful, little girl! How are they growing up so fast? What is with that? I'm so emotional about the fact that my oldest son - he's turning 4 on August 1st - will also be starting kindergarten in September. Major emotional breakdown for me!
Happy celebrating your daughter's birthday! She's a big girl now! And cute as ever!

So very cute. I hadn't seen a picture of your daughter in a while & when I clicked on the link and saw the picture it blew me away how much she looks like you!
Since I have a 4 1/2 yo, I have to agree with Kelly and say that 2005 was a good year!

I remember what she said when you told her this last year... "you were a daddy?"

Make sure you tell her this every year and that you keep track of her response. It will make an awesome list for her when she's a mommy too.
