Alice turned 4 last week!
The day started off a little rocky since Alice didn't
FEEL four years old when she woke up.
While she was at preschool, Ben and I assembled her new (to her) loft bed with a slide!
She LOVES it!
Nona got her the zoo for her birthday!
We couldn't wait to take her and are looking forward to going back.
She was exhausted!
I looked over to see Clementine donning the birthday crown. :)
Nana and Grandpa came over later and gave Alice this awesome Elsa hat:
Alice refused to model it.
Clementine was much more compliant.
A couple days later, we had her party!
She decided the theme months ago, "Superhero tumbling birthday party".
We had it at a gymnastics center and it was perfect!!
Easiest party we've hosted yet! :)
After the kids played,
we had cupcakes and snacks in a separate little room.
Alice was super excited about sitting in this special chair.
I should've taken more pictures!
...especially a group picture!
Alice and her buddies got these capes and masks to wear while playing.
All in all, it was a great birthday!
Some things we want to remember about Alice at 4 years old:
-She is an amazing big sister.
-She just learned how to swim!
dressing up as a ballerina, tooth fairy, doctor, etc.,
pickles and peaches,
soap and rubber gloves,
the colors pink, yellow, and green,
and pretending to be Couchy, the dog...named after the couch.
-She doesn't like:
the Sonicare toothbrush,
having her hair brushed,
when we "sing at her",
and leaving the pool.
One of my favorite things is when I tuck her in at night and tell her,
"Alice, I love being your mom."
She replies, "I love being your daughter."
It has gone by WAY too fast.
