My Baby's A Big Girl Now!

Remember this gorgeous little creature?

Well she's gone and grown up. I'm not sure when it happened. I'm positive that she still looked like that just last week. Then yesterday she went and turned four. Yes. Four-years-old!

To say she's gorgeous and (along with her big brother) the absolute light of our lives would be a complete understatement. She's funny, inquisitive, sunny and, according to her besotted Daddy, cute, cute and cute. She loves to help me 'do jobs', adores helping her Dad in the yard especially if it involves her gumboots, dirt and some garden tools and she waits patiently all day to collect her big brother from school only to pick a fight with him before we even reach the carpark. She loves her babies, doing puzzles, drawing and colouring, jumping on the trampoline, riding her bike and cuddles. She hates being left behind, being told no, cleaning her room and green beans.

We had a few of her little friends, along with their families, around for afternoon tea on Saturday afternoon for a birthday celebration and what would an afternoon tea party be without...

Some sweet little Marshmallow Teacups

Fairy Bread, with fairy sprinkles

Tiny little Baby Cupcakes

Party bags for the guests

and Birthday Cake with pretty flower candles

Nothing makes time fly like having kids. Tell her Happy Birthday from me.

Oh noooo, she can NOT be 4 years old already! Seems like the days go by slowly but the years just fly by! She is such a beautiful little girl and I love hearing about her personality. Her party food looks like it was just perfect for her. I know she loves pink and girly stuff......gumboots and dirt excluded! Give her a big Happy Birthday Hug from her American friends!

Happy 4th Birthday! Four is a fabulous age :-) You can do so much stuff! Ride bikes! Make sandcastles! Stir the risotto! Have fun!

Happy belated Birthday from here, too!

:-))) LOL "...and green beans"!

She sure is a cutie, her Dad is right! :-)
