Taegan's 4th birthday was great! We have the best family and friends in the world! She loved seeing everyone and really loved all her gifts. Thank you Smiths for letting us have it at your pool!!! I was gonna post a few pics from the party but apparently Taegan erased them all! Yep, she was looking at them and must have hit the "erase all pictures from this date" button, so I have no pictures of her 4th birthday! Oh well!
Like my friend Deedra, I write my kids a letter every year to put in their baby books. Here's my letter to Taegan this year:
Taegan, I can't believe you are 4 already! When did you get so big? I tell you everyday that I love you, but as I look at you today my heart swells and my eyes fill with tears because you are the daughter that I have always wanted. You look so much like your daddy with your big blue eyes, but you act like me with all your drama! When you sleep with your mouth open you look like Granny Willoughby and when your mad at Cohen you look like Mamaw Susie. You're such a mommy's girl and you give the best hugs and kisses. Cohen picks on you and makes you squeal all the time, but I'm just waiting on the moment when you finally lay into him! I tell you all the time that you have "princess syndrome" but you really are my sweetheart. I love it when you want to cuddle with me at nighttime and although I get onto you all the time for still sucking your thumb when you go to sleep, I am actually going to miss it. That will be the last "baby" thing that you do, and you will officially be a big girl then. And I'm not sure I'm ready for that. I know you have to grow up, but even when your 40, you'll still be my baby girl. I love you now and forever my sweet girl!
PS-Thank you for all your prayers for my job situation, I have a job offer! I figure if this nursing job doesn't work out I'm going to Lowe's or Walmart!
