Happy 4th Birthday, Taylor Grace!!!

Taylor Grace, how is it possible that you are four years old today?

I'm pretty sure it was just yesterday that we were doing this: 

 Meeting you for the first time.

Our fourth girl. 

Lately I've been having lots of conversations with myself.

They go a little something like this:
"It's fine. You're going to be fine.  So what if the girls are growing like weeds, changing every single day?  That's alright. Each stage is new and different.  Each stage is a blessing in its own way."

And it will be fine.  It *is* good.  I *do* love each new stage.

But boy do I long for those baby days.

I miss your chubby legs.

I miss carrying you around everywhere we go.

But what fun it is to see you become your own little person.

To watch your personality grow.

You are definitely your own little person.
And so different from each of your big sissies.

You got that "baby of the family" thing down pat.

You want what you want, and you want it NOW.

But most of us are happy to oblige, because when you look up at us with those big blue eyes, and smile that silly smile, we pretty much melt.

Every day is a new adventure with you.

We never know what will come out of your mouth

What new ideas you'll have

Or, truth be told, what kind of mood we'll be in for each day!
But God sure knew what He was doing when He blessed us with you.

Our sweet little Taylor Grace

I can still remember when she was born! Gosh, that doesn't feel like it could possibly have been four years ago! It also puzzles me how you can look like you've walked off a magazine shoot while still in the hospital after giving birth. Did you have someone there to do your hair and makeup? ;)
