Happy Birthday LeiLei

We have a Birthday this week!!! Our oldest is turning 4. I know every parent says it, but wow, how can we possibly have a four year old?

A few years ago while watching 19 Kids & Counting (a.k.a. the Duggers, and if it was a few years ago it was probably only 17 Kids & Counting) they were explaining how they let their children celebrate their Birthdays. They allow their child to choose weather they want a traditional  Birthday Party or to have an Experience  (like skydiving, or being able to feed / touch the animals at the zoo). While they are young you give them a few choices, but as they get older they get to come up with their own experience (obviously within limits). I looked at my hubby and declared that was what we would do for our kiddos. Personally I hope they choose the experiences just so I can participate.

So for LeiLeis Birthday this year we asked her if she wanted a party or if she wanted to go camping, and she chose camping. Yahoo!! We will be celebrating our daughters birthday sitting on the river, with a campfire and smores.

Being the mom that I am, let me share with you her last three Birthdays...

First Birthday

2nd Birthday
3rd Birthday
A Daughter Like You
You're my daughter,
and I'd just like to say,
You bring me joy,
each and every day.
Whenever I think,
or look at you,
I know I'm blessed,
that's wonderfully true.
You're very special,
thoughtfully care,
A helping hand,
always willing to share.
You're always determined,
to achieve what's in your mind,
Thinking of others,
you're actions are kind.
I shall admit,
we're a wonderful team,
To have a daughter like you,
was my ultimate dream.
