ely has really caught the birthday train! she's taking after me, and will soon have a birthday month! all day yesterday, if she wanted to do something, she said "well, i'm the birthday girl so i get to do it!" and now that it's not her birthday, she gets to do whatever she wants because she's 4. here's what i've heard just in the last 24 hours:
"now that i'm 4 i can...
jump higher (who knew?)
walk by myself (no, you can't!)
get stuff all by myself if i want it
swim pretty well without asking
do whatever i want. i really can because i'm four. (i think we'll need to have a little one on one talk about this one!)
i guess 4 is a great age!
