Marshmallow Mondays


4 Years Old

Lily celebrated her 4th birthday on Saturday (her actual birthday). I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen her so excited, and it lasted all day long.  Her excitement made us smile, laugh, and it touched our hearts all at once while reminding us what a truly sweet, amazing little girl we have been blessed with.

Doc McStuffins style, her birthday was a mix of bouncing with friends, eating some of her favorite foods, opening gifts, enjoying cake and ice cream, and lots and lots of laughter and smiles.

Lily received so many new Doc McStuffins toys, ones that she’s never seen in stores, which was very exciting for her.  Just look at that face!

Her friend Madelyn even found Lily a pair of Doc McStuffins pink glittery shoes!

What a lucky girl to have such great friends!

Since she had insisted on practicing how to blow her candles out before going to sleep on Friday, Lily was very prepared for her Doc McStuffins birthday cake.

She took her time to blow out each candle, one at a time.

After a nice afternoon nap, Lily’s friends at church made her feel even more special by letting her talk about her day.  Together, they all said a big “Happy Birthday, Lily” on the count of three.  When we arrived back home, Lily opened up more gifts from Mommy, Daddy, and Rydan, as well as gifts from family members in Pennsylvania.

“Don’t even say it… don’t EVEN say it. OH. MY. GOSH.” – Lily as she opened up her musical horse jewelry box from Nana.

“Mommy, can I go running with you now?”

All day, Lily enjoyed phone calls and skype sessions with lots of special people, including Papoose, Lola, Nana, Aunt Neese and Cousin Kip.  Thank you everyone for showing Lily how very loved she is.  She truly had a wonderful day and soaked up every single moment. I loved seeing her so happy and watching her excitement throughout her special day.  To everyone who wished her Happy Birthday on the phone or left a birthday wish for her on Facebook, Lily says “Thank you SO much. That was SO nice of you!”
