Autumn turned 4 today! I love to take photos the night before of them asleep, one last time before they turn another year old. Here is Autumn asleep last year, her last night as a 2 year old. I cannot believe how much they grow in ONE year.
To celebrate Autumn's birthday today, I have two last gifts for her... a jewelry box and a ballerina necklace. Then, we are surprising the kids with brand new sleeping bags and the Brave DVD, and we'll sit on the couch and relax and have dinner and eat some snacks... and some birthday ice cream before heading to bed before we celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow! All in all a nice relaxing birthday celebration!
Autumn has changed so much this year...
She started preschool
She started Sunday School
She can dress herself, including shoes
She can write her name (Autumn)
Her hair has gotten longer and curlier
She is starting speech classes soon (last year this time we had JUST weaned her from the binky)
She started dance class
She has her first real little friend outside school name Chloe, then several school friends (Lauren, Caleb, etc.)
She has a preference for what shoes she wants to wear
If you ask her where she wants to eat, the answer is always McDonalds (even over Chuckie Cheese)
She loves to give kisses and hugs
She mastered a tricycle and now has a big girl bike, her favorite toy
Some of her other favorite toys were Loving Family, Lalaloopsie and Play Doh
She loves to play Doctor
She loves Brian's rollercoasters
She loves to color, draw people with fingers
