My baby is FOUR years old today!!

I can't believe this little peanut is four! We haven't celebrated her birthday yet...her daddy had to leave for work early today and she really doesn't 'get' her birthday...so we're going to my parents house this afternoon and will celebrate with them. Daddy's office is five minutes from their house, so it's all good!

Oh, how we all love our little Ella bella! She's still small enough to carry, she gives great hugs and kisses--when she's in the mood, anyway. She's a beauty and lots of fun, to boot. She really can't talk much at all, but boy does she sing and dance. I love walking into my room and seeing her dancing and singing away to Barney or Dragon Tales. She sings in the car, she sings herself to sleep, and she especially loves singing songs with hand motions, such as Jesus Loves Me. She loves her baby dolls and she also loves to pretend to be my baby--she puts herself in my arms as a baby, sucks her thumb, closes her eyes, and settles in to hear me sing her a lullaby. Too adorable!

We are all so glad she's our baby. But I can't help thinking there is a foster mommy down in Colombia who is missing her Maria Camila today. I wish she could know how loved and cherished our little girl is; how much a part of the Spicer family life.
