Happy Birthday, Dear Dahlia!
She began her life like this and this - what a trip to have everything documented so that I can revisit it! What a crazy 4 years it has been.
She is also so good with her brother (most of the time). When she's not frustrated with him for 'stealing her toys' she is really good about "showing" him how to do things. And most of the time he is receptive. She tells him she will teach him, because she is the big sister & big sisters are good at doing that.
She still enjoys 'hiking' with us & playing in the creek. We have had so many fun hours of throwing rocks, sticks & toy boats into the water to see where they will end up. She also likes to "fish" when she's down there. Any stick will do.
She could watch a movie every day - but I can't say I blame her, so could I. She loves listening to the "Disney" channel I created on Pandora & has started singing along to songs from Mary Poppins & The Sound of Music which squeezes my heart even more. We have dance parties in the kitchen to whatever is on & we don't miss "Dash's Dance Party" in between shows on PBS.
She is the light of my life. I love her more than I knew was possible.
Can't wait to see what delights the next year will bring!
