There's no cuter way to break back into blogging than by celebrating Rosie's 4th birthday!
She requested a pink horsey cake with a rainbow mane, and you better believe Mama made it happen!
I can't believe it has been four years since I woke our neighbors up at 2 am to see if they could stay with our sleeping girls while we raced to the too-far-away hospital and barely made it in time to welcome Johnye Rose into the world.
No time for an epidural with her -- it was my first (and hopefully my last) natural birth. She continues to be my all-natural wonder girl, radiating joy and life everywhere she goes.
Rosie's smile is infectious. She is my girly-girl, always wearing dresses, necklaces, and sparkly shoes. She brushes her hair 3x/day and asks for lipstick and blush every opportunity she gets. She loves to sing in a very dramatic way, and she write the most beautiful worship songs to Jesus while she plunks on the piano. It's not unusual to catch her singing to herself like this:
Johnye Rose, you are simply amazing. You are so smart (you already write your name and can count higher than any 4-year-old I've ever met!), you love the Lord, you are affectionate and spunky and love to be in the spotlight. You remind me of another little girl from a long time ago. ;)
Keep being you, keep shining, and never let your spark fade away! WE LOVE YOU, ROSIE!!!
