Four years....

Oh my little darlin'
little darlin'
little darlin'

Oh my little darlin'
little darlin'
Valerie

How can it be four years already? Four years since I first held you in my arms. You were swaddled tightly in hospital blankets with the little striped cap on your head. Oh so tiny!! I wasn't sure what to do with you. I was in awe. You were so good, so quiet, and so sweet. How you changed our lives forever! How you changed ME forever. And here you are, four years old already. A little girl. You love to wear dresses - and the same dresses over and over! You're a Valerina! You're a princess! Make up and perfume are a special treat. Oh so girly girl. Yet so silly!!! You still love your bunny blankets. You can sing and dance. You go to school and dance class. Your friends are so special to you. So thankful for everything and so polite and so full of hugs and kisses and I love yous.... You love to help. You love to cuddle and read books. I couldn't ask for a sweeter little girl.

And even after four years, I'm still in awe.

Happy Fourth Birthday to Valerie Nicol! Love you!!
