four years
i can't believe you big you are
how much you've grown, your legs
they dangle down past my knees when i hold you.
how funny you are (you make us laugh so hard we ache)
you are filled with joy
and compassion, you greet others with hugs and help them up when they fall
you are earnest in your exploration and your belly laughs are music.
my heart has never been more full,
in awe of you
my precious baby girl
today we celebrate you.

happy birthday baby.
