Turning FOUR is fun galore!

We had a very busy weekend! Busy with celebrations, that is. Sunday was Mother’s Day, of course, but it was also Carolyn and Elizabeth’s birthday, and we also celebrated Janet’s birthday at the same time (although it’s technically not until next weekend) because we already had the whole family together and my parents were about to leave for a two week vacation. The icing on the cake (so to speak) was that my Grandma was able to come up and join us too.  So, we had Mother’s Day celebrations for Grandma, Mom, Janet, and Annmarie, and birthday celebrations for Carolyn, Elizabeth and Janet.

Carolyn and Elizabeth turned FOUR years old! Amazing. I suppose if I had more time to pause and reflect, I’d probably feel flabbergasted at how much and how quickly they’ve grown — and perhaps even find some energy to miss those “good old days” (like when I used to change 7 to 10 diapers every stinking day). To be sure, I enjoyed many aspects of the time when they were infants, but frankly I’m glad they’re four, and I’m thrilled to see them learning so many new things — letters, numbers, games… We measured them a few days ago and found they have grown about an inch and a half in the last 6 months. We’re looking forward to what comes next.

Happy Birthdays!
