Four years ago I looked like this:
And we were waiting for this:
It's not quite Genevieve's 4th birthday yet, but today is her family birthday party at her grandma and grandpa's house. She has grown nearly two inches this summer and is able to read chapter books labeled "reading level: age 8-9." Of course, she also does not yet reliably sleep through the night and sometimes still likes to ride in the stroller.
Tonight there will be a Clifford cake, ice cream, and the subsequent sugar high. It is also our 15th wedding anniversary, if you can believe that.
I feel rather old all of a sudden.
