Today you are four years old! How is that possible? It seems like no time ago when you were a tiny baby in my arms. You are our firstborn, and came as a ray of sunshine after a sad time for our family. You are the first grandchild on both sides of our family. Do you know how spoiled rotten that makes you? Everyone went nuts over you the day you were born and continue to do so today.
You are cute, smart, polite and funny. You are clumsy, love to make a mess with tiny objects and forget to say yes mam and no mam sometimes, but those are about the only negative things I can think of to say about you. You are really such a delightful child, and other people tell us this regularly as well and it makes us so proud. You are girly and love to dress up and pretend. We absolutely adore your imagination! You love your baby dolls, and I just know you are going to be a fabulous mama one day. You are so bright! We are amazed at how quickly you learn things, and I hope that love of learning continues as you go through school.
You grew up so much when you became a big sister, and we are so proud of how you have handled the changes in our family. You are so sweet to Graham, and he adores you! It makes my heart so happy to see you interact with each other. You love to help me around the house and with the baby. You are very obedient and love to please me and Daddy and your teachers at church and school, and we are so proud of that.
Amelia, you are such a joy to our family. You make every day more fun. Daddy and I could not be prouder of the little girl you have become, and we can't wait to see the person you grow up to be. Happy Birthday to the sweetest four-year-old I know!
