Fabulous four

Today we celebrate you and the day that you were born! It has been an amazing four years of my life and I'm so proud that I am your mommy. If I had to pick one word that most reminds me of you it would be delightful. You bring light and laughter and optimism with you wherever you go and I pray that would always be so.

In the last year I have been amazed at the way you so easily transitioned from being an only child to a big sister. Papa and I are so proud of you and the way you love on your brother. You are the biggest helper and are always looking for a way to get involved. You're intuitive and can see where someone might need help or overlooked something. Mati doesn't always appreciate this, but I can assure you it's a great asset. You have a nurturing heart and I love to watch you play with your baby dolls and "be the mommy", doing so many of the things I have done for you.

I love the way you want to understand what's going on and why, and even though it wears me out sometimes, I am thankful that God gave you such an inquisitive mind. I love that you love to learn and read and are always up for a project. You have an imagination that never quits and love nothing more then making up some crazy, silly story. I've loved watching you really begin to understand more about God this year and a desire to want to please Him. I'm so proud of the way you are working to hide His word in your heart both at home and through Awana.

Haven, you are just a delight! I never know what's going to come out of your mouth and that's only half the fun! I can only imagine how fabulous of a four year old you're going to be. I pray that this new year of your life finds you growing in your love for God and your compassion for other people. You're my best girl.

I love you thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much!
