She’s Four!



Since last Friday, Zoë’s been doing a countdown.  She would wake up each morning, announce the date, and count her little fingers to see how many more days to go until her birthday.  I’ve never met anybody as excited as she is about turning 4.

She had been planning her birthday party since June of last year.  She would tell me who she wants to invite, what kind of cake she wants, what dress she’s going to wear…

Last night around dinner time, she looked out the window and squealed, eyes alit with excitement, “It’s almost night time and soon it will be my birthday!”  It took quite a while for her to settle down at bedtime.  She was too giddy with excitement.  She kept saying, “Tomorrow it’s my birthday and I’m going to be taller!”

So today Zoë turns 4.  She’s still as tall as she was yesterday. But she is 4.  Today we are going to celebrate her birthday at home with family.  Lunch at home and then a simple dinner out with our out-of-town friends.  Saturday, we’re going to have her party with all her little friends.

Happy birthday, sweet Zoë!
May you be blessed a hundredfold
the blessings that you’ve brought to our lives.
