Happy Birthday, Little Miss!

I can't believe its been four whole years since Jadyn made her debut! Her birth was by far my best. She was my first homebirth. My easiest labor. And an easy delivery. Jordan was 4 and Jake was a few days shy of 3 when she was born. They don't remember life pre-Jadyn. But, I do. And I can say with a whole lot of certainty that life was just plain boring before her big, bright personality came to entertain the world!

She is highly social, fiercly independent, creative, unique and wonderful!
I love 4th Birthdays. I can now see that this particular birthday marks a changing point in my kids. Some people hate the terrible two's. For us, age 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 has always been the challenging time. So, the 4th birthday comes in as a new start. A new level of maturity that makes the kids easier to enjoy. A new level of independence that makes life a little easier. As my friend, Amy says for kids like Jadyn, 'the maturity to handle their great big personality!' So true!

Since Jadyn and Jake's birthdays are so close (11 days apart), we are having a joint party on Sunday. An art party since they both love arts/crafts. Can't wait - it will be lots of fun!

Happy Birthday, Jadey-bade! I love you more than you will ever know.

Jadyn...you just warm my heart. But I have to tell you, sweet girl, I am counting on you to let my 'wisdom' hold true...you gotta ease up on your Momma, but still keep that same Jadyn spunk:)
Enjoy being 4!!!
