4 years ago today...

i've recently posted about my birthing story with my boo.  it was a "BOO!" story!!!  :( 

this was the day after boo was born.  binkins came to meet her.
so, i'll tell you a little about my recent 4-year-old.

    boo today, in her birthday dress.
  1. she's gorgeous!  
  2. she's super sweet.  sweet smile.  sweet disposition.  and sweet tooth!
  3. she LOVES to laugh.  she has a very unique sense of humor, especially for a 3/4-year-old.  she has the absolute most adorable laugh ever too!
  4. she messes up her r-sounds.  but we're sure working haRd on it!
  5. she likes hot dogs, corn dogs, and maccaroni and cheese.
  6. she also likes fruit and candy and snack foods.  when i asked what she wanted for her birthday dinner, after about an hour of brainstorming, all she could think of was cake (link to the cake recipe i'm making), candybars, suckers, and frosting.  FINALLY today i got her to list out some "healthy" things too.  we get to have raisins, watermelon, strawberries, chocolate flavored berries (???  yeah, not havin' those for dinner), with mac 'n' cheese. 
  7. she LOVES to wear dresses!  she'll deal with skirts, but only with a happy face if they're full of lace and toole. 
  8. her favorite color is purple and pink.
  9. her favorite animals are cats, but she also likes alligators.
and now, a life-pictorial of her:
