Four Fantastic years ago this little nugget joined our family in the middle of our VBS (Vacation Bible School) week. On Tuesday I was walking the stairs to our third floor< sixth grade classroom and on Wednesday I was induced and we welcomed Abi to the world.
Abi Grace! My goodness how the world would be a sad place without our crazy Abi.
We adore you! You are so unpredictably fun. We never know when you’re going to photobomb a picture or cheese it up.
You have this life and energy in you that is enviable. Oh and that smile…. it’s always been there… your utter abandonment to joy… with that twinkle in your eyes…
You and your crazy hair (especially first thing in the morning and post-nap).
You and your crazy delight.
You and the randomly and hilariously crazy things you say with such a straight face. My goodness, I’ve added years to my life in laughter. [Like this morning when you asked for breakfast to be “Cookie cereal and a tomato.” “A tomato?!” I responded and you said with the most straight face, “Yeah, I’ve never had that together before.”]
And those expressions. I swear I’m seeing a glimpse of your teenagehood trapped in your now four year old body. HA!
Abi you are a hoot! You add such spice to life. You are our perfect middle.
And YES, today FINALLY is your birthday. And YES, today we are FINALLY going to Chuck-E-Cheese (how dare we say ‘no’ when you have been harboring pictures you’ve drawn Chuck-E for weeks).
So from your Mommy, Daddy, and the rest of your cohort we wish our crazy, hilarious, dramatic, comedian, rambunctious, irresistible, passionate, delightful, spunky Abi Grace the happiest Fourth Birthday EVER!
– Love you so!
