Turning Four

I'm not sure what's scarier - the fact that Amelia turned 4 today, or the fact that this was a year ago. Every time I see her, she's grown up just a tiny bit more. In September, she'll be going to school! It's scary how fast time is passing. This afternoon we headed down to my sisters for a mini party with family.
As an Aunty, I take great pleasure in spoiling my one and only niece. This year, that came in the shape of an Ariel doll, an inflatable Disney princess chair, a Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck puzzle, a party dress and new PJs. The whole thing was a bit overwhelming for her, but as soon as her new chair was up, she plonked herself in front of the fire and began playing on her Mum's iPad. Four going on fourteen?
This year she asked for a Spongebob cake (great choice I think..) but got super shy when we all sang to her! Something I used to hate when I was a kid too.

It's amazing to have watched her grow from a tiny baby, to a gorgeous toddler, and now in to a perfect little girl. Happy Birthday Amelia!
