And now she's 4!

In March, my pretty little girl turned 4. As super excited as she was, I was a tad sad to see her aging so quickly. Could be because I missed those first 15 months and feel like I just need more time with my baby or it could be because being a Mom of 4, she is my baby and no Mama wants her baby to grow up....sigh...

But nonetheless, the calendar keeps churning away as days turn into nights and nights into we celebrated with a pretty pink cake, per her request. 

She is 4 and yet so full of life.  She is happy all the time, unless she's 'trying' to pout, which usually ends in smiles.  She's my shadow, my snuggle bug, my complete joy.  I can not imagine my life without her and like every important date that rolls around, I think of her birthparents.  I wonder if they even thought of her and like always, I pray they can somehow feel how this one little girl is so deeply loved and adored.

Welcome to year 4 of your life baby girl.

So it's been awhile....

So it's been a really long time. The thought of updating this weee lil' blog has occurred to me like twice, but I usually find something to do that requires less brain cells instead.  So much has changed and I am in a much better place than I was a year ago, mentally speaking of course.  I was laid off from my job, which I'm quite happy about.  I was miserable there, m.i.s.e.r.a.b.l.e. and didn't really allow myself to think of other options because my little girl was thriving in her $1000 a month school and I didn't want to change her schedule.  Nonetheless, the company business plummeted and I was stuck beneath a pathetic office manager with no real penis in his pants but had the ego of a real winner.  The job was sucking the life out of me, so I began my search to relieve myself from that misery.  I found my way into a new company, where flexibility is the norm.  I work from home, part time-full time, whatever I want and my salary is much better.  We shall see how it goes, I am new to the field and my brain is spinning with so much to learn, but it's a great opportunity.   I've also been able to switch EG's school to a part time school next year and save $700/month....much better...

So I'll just update the crew:

My husband is spinning the wheels at work as well as he takes over another division.  So much good stuff happening, but also a lot of work. 

G is finishing up his 10th grade year where he is doing great.  He is still an avid golfer and still thinks that EG hung the moon.  She is his first hug when he comes home. 

C has become quite the violinist this year.  He's always been musical and artsy, but his skills have improved greatly.  He is finishing up his 7th grade year.  He's extremely social, he's very out of the box (still) and he's still true to who he's always been. 

W is closing up his 2nd grade year with the best teacher on the planet.  He talks a lot.  A.L.O.T.  In fact, if he's not talking, we check for a pulse.  He has a whole lotta stuff to say.  He is still fascinated with food and has developed a love for gardening.  We planted a small garden, but our neighbor has a large one that he encourages W to come over and take care of. 

lil EG is sassy and sweet, more sweet than anything.  She LOVES school and the fact that I see no anxiety in her is nothing short of a miracle.  She has been sleeping through the night for 2 years, in her bed and only occasionally does she wake up to go potty, but she always runs back to bed.  She is easy going, happy and so freaking smart.  She hears everything we say and will repeat it.  We can always get an accurate truth out of her if the boys are in a fight or trying to hide something.  She doesn't tattle (yet) but she will offer up the truth if we ask her.  She loves shoes, hair, clothes and nail polish.
