I'm about a month late writing about this. I couldn't skip it, so better late than never!
In the midst of our move, our sweet Maddie turned 4! She's turned into quite an amazing little girl and we are so proud of her. She's silly and caring and sensitive and helpful and smart and understanding and sassy and independent. Moving was hard on her. Leaving friends and family, her house and things she was familiar with. But she's been a great big sister and after some talks and snuggles, she has adjusted well.
She loves school, so I made sure to find her a school to start when we got here. We have since changed to a school closer to home and she loves every minute!
She's a singer, actress and a comedian. She loves putting on clothes to dance around and sing. Her newest love is singing and dancing in front of the mirror….usually in a million different outfits or a bathing suit. 🙂 (I did the same thing at her age!) She also loves making up songs. They are hilarious, ridiculous and so very off-key. But she sings with such passion! It's just heartwarming!
Back to her party. I met a couple new friends online (and an old friend) who have kids the same age, so they came as well as our wonderful friend, Kelly (who spoils our kids rotten…in a good way!) and her fiancé. And it so happened that my dad ended up being in town for the party. We were still in temp housing at the apartment, so we rented the theater room. I got some activities, snacks, popcorn…and we ordered pizza for lunch. We put a movie on the big screen and skyped with our moms. It turned out great! Here's a few pictures.
We are so happy her birthday turned out so well even with all we had going on. And thank you to those of you who were there and sent her gifts! You all made a four year old feel very special!
