Today marks Hannah's 4th year of life, and what an action-packed 4 years it has been!
Our little Hannah, from the moment she was yanked out to this very moment, has been one ball of constantly-moving, never-stopping, energy. She is full of curiosity, is the most independent little girl I have ever seen, and has brains like nobody's business. She has never ceased to amaze us: From crawling at 3 months old, walking at 7, talking in sentences by 1 year...to potty training herself at age 1-1/2...to reading books on her own at 3-1/2...we are always at a loss to wonder what is coming next.
This weekend, we celebrated her 4 years of life on this planet (notice I say on this planet because sometimes I am convinced she is an alien) by throwing a dinosaur-themed birthday party, complete with a dinosaur egg hunt and T-Rex pinata (both of which were slightly modified due to the rain that decided to make an appearance for her party). Luckily, we had cleaned the garage out the weekend prior and it was somewhat presentable and made a great pinata bashing locale.
We also had the requested-for-the-past-year-or-so dinosaur cake with dino skeletons and dino candles. Hannah received a ton of gifts, including the Snow White vacuum she has pined away for since before Christmas, a fishing pole, t-ball set, dino toys, books, My Little Pony beauty salon, and more. Lunch was also her request: Hot dogs, chips, fruit kebabs, BBQ chicken, potato salad, Sunny D, and Scooperman ice cream.
Some fun 4-year-old Hannah facts straight from her mouth:
Favorite color: Pink
Best friends: Summer and Haiden
Favorite book: My new how to train your dragon book.
What do you want to be when you grow up: Ummmm....someone who plants flowers and lives in a house and has vases. I want to be someone who goes to the zoo and takes care of all the animals.
Favorite things to do: Pick and plant flowers, I like to play Just Dance and Star Wars. I like rubber princess toys and rubber dinosaurs, but not the ones that make scary sounds. I like to dress up like Bumblebee from Transformers and like a princess.
