Boo turned 4 on Wednesday. She had a fun packed day where all of her requests were met: Chuck E Cheese and a candy necklace.

We hung out with some animals (National Zoo 10:45-3), naps, then picked up S. and went to Chuck E Cheese that evening. She had a magical day in her eyes.

Some of my favorite things about Boo:

1. She will randomly tell me that she loves me, or that I'm a good chef, or that I look beautiful. Who wouldn't want an in-house self-esteem lifter?
2. She is a really good sister to Little Man. I'm so glad she is my oldest, because if I really do have 6 kids she will help SO much. She always says, "He's really cute when...," she "reads" to him, sings to him and helps him do things.
3. Her belly laugh. It's one of those laughs that is contagious--even if you're grumpy.
4. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body.
5. She sings and dances beautifully. She can pick up a song the first time she hears it, and she can sing past a high C.
6. She's goofy--just like me and funny like her dad.
7. She has a great imagination.
8. She is loving to all of her grandparents. It doesn't matter that they can't always interact with her. She is so wonderful whenever we visit--whether in a nursing home with Great-Gma Mc, or in Great-Gma Dixon's home. She sings, and talks, and holds hands. She is not phased by others in the nursing home who are yelling out.
9. She finds joy in the littlest things.
10. Her curly hair, big eyes, and beautiful smile.

Her interests right now: Princess things, fairies, dressing up, High School Musical, Wicked, Seuss, listening to books on CD or having them read to her, swimming, being with cousins and friends, riding her bike, writing, drawing, playing the piano, singing, dancing (she made me pick her up so I could be her partner and in the air she did the splits. She came up with this idea herself), make-up (ahhhh).

We love you, Boo!

B. is my joy. Her quick mind and beautiful voice lift unimportant worries from my sholders when I get home from work. She is kind, warm, silly, and smart. Our nighttime stories are often my favorite part of the day.

I hope she grows up just like her mom.

Happy birthday, B.

Hey girl - your father-in-law was over the other night (I drove up and he was digging through the dumpster we had in the driveway for spring cleaning!) and was telling us all about the Mudrick family blogs. So, in order to avoid studying or doing anything else productive, I checked them out... super cute... and I can't let Dave see the gourmet one or he'll realize what kind of fabulous home-cooked meals he's missing out on! Alright, and tell me this... does Isabella (which, I just found out, was in the top 10 most popular names around the time she was born) look exactly like Sam? And does Luke look exactly like Uncle Ben (not the rice guy)? Last question... you're on to number three already!?!? When's it gracing the world with its presence?

Jules said...

Seriously, Bella is Sam and Luke is a preview of what Ben and Amanda's children will look like. I am wondering if #3 will look like me (due Feb). Those Muds have strong genes. It's a good thing they are so dang good looking and smart!

We love B! Can't wait to get our 4 year olds together this summer! Can you even believe they are 4? Getting pretty old. It's fun. I somewhat disagree with the assessment of little man. I think I can see Atkinson boys in him...maybe a little craig or steven....Does anyone else think so? I know it's been FOREVER since I've seen him in the flesh.
