This is 4! {Denver and Golden, Colorado’s Family and Children’s Photographer}

So, this is four years old.

My daughter, Mica, has wanted to be four since the day she turned three. (Smile!) So, so eager to be a “big girl” and grow up. I remember feeling the same way.Β  And what a different perspective you see as a parent… just like that, my toddler is now a little lady. I can’t deny, that I look back at photos of her from just a year ago and already miss that toddler belly and chubby cheeks… but I love watching her grow into someone so unique, wonderful and full of her own thoughts, ideas and … yes, jokes… and all I can do is watch in awe. I could not ask for more. So blessed.

Her birthday this year, I fully admit, felt a bit different for me…as I celebrated with her – I could feel the constant kicking in this basketball belly I have been carrying around… a wonderful and reassuring reminder that we are awaiting our second child to burst onto the scene in September.

I remember friends telling me that once our first child arrived, it would be hard to imagine life without her… and that an hour would not go by without thinking of her. So true. And I remember trying my hardest to soak in all those days before she arrived – when it was just my husband Bill and me. I did cherish those days and I am so glad I did. Truthfully, I had no idea how to comprehend the world ahead, so I just hugged the world I knew. And now I feel like I am on the eve of a time like that again… when life will never be the same. Trying to soak in my days with my sweet, crazy… love her to death… four year old… and cherish this one-on-one time… before this next person to love comes into our lives. I know I will not completely lose my one-on-one time with Mica, as everyone talks about efforts to make sure that happens… but I am not naive either… that even though I cannot yet comprehend two children… it will be different. My heart will grow to include this new little person… and I can’t wait.

But, until September arrives and our hearts explode with new love…I will slow down and cherish these unique days too… and my girl. Who is four. And is so ridiculously amazing in my eyes.

Happy Birthday, Mica. I love being your mom.
