Well, your birthday season has concluded my girl. We had a “camping” party with Leo, a small birthday dinner with neighbors and Grambie, and a play date with your buddies from your old class at school - your “Voyager play date.” You’ve had cakes and cupcakes and donuts and more cakes. You’ve opened a parade of gifts spanning over a week and have been showered by so much love by all of your biggest fans.
And you deserve it! Your exuberance makes everyone smile around you, always. You are outgoing and loving and funny and in charge. You are the most full-hearted big sister, taking Royce’s hand into yours and leading him around the house or the block and just this morning showing him how to “practice” using the potty. You know the names of every single person you’ve ever met, and you report details to all of the parents at school, who tell us you are their main source of information.
You love to dance and climb and flip and swim. You are brave and strong and fearless. You are precocious and affectionate and you take care of everyone - your pals at school when they are sad, your brother, your puppy. You have collected more best friends than most of us amass in a lifetime.
You have style and sass and spunk. And you will do big things in this world.
We are so lucky you’re ours.
This is four.
