my first baby turned four today.

chloe is OBSESSED with birthdays,
and she's been waiting SO long for it to
finally be hers.

she shared the morning with her bf's at preschool + funfetti.

....and while she was gone,
we decorated her room & left some gifts & surprises.

she loved her treasures & her new bicycle,

& her new special bed!

*my sweetest pal cori gave me this cute
headboard & footboard a while back...
so i touched it up with some paint &
oh em gee, chloe loves it.
she calls it her "princess bed."
{thanks mccoys!}

*and i've been pulling 3am-ers trying to
finish this quilt in time for the big day.

i've only been working on it for 10 years!

my mom bought the fabric my senior year for me
to make a bedspread for myself
and i'm just now finishing it
for my favorite 4-year-old.

it's done! i love it! yay!

we spray painted this cradle that my awesome dad
made when i was a little girl.

*the sentimental-ness makes me tear up, actually....

i thought chloe's babies might get cold,
so we made a blankie for them too!

...my amazing-in-every-way friend bev,
taught me how to make these cute banners!

....and i thought it'd be perfect
hanging right above chloe's sweet head @ night.

chloe makes me smile every day.

we had a simple, magical day celebrating her.

she is worth celebrating every day though.
she's one amazing girlie.

{i love you bowie!}

I can't believe you have a four year old! Remember 7th grade when we were all awkward and frightening? (Just sayin'.) Love you!

Lisa said...

Your kid and my kids sound like kindred spirits.

It's been hard for Hannah to go to everyone else's birthday, but hers.

I asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She said, "A birthday party for ME!"
