March 26

Dear Harper, Harper-girl, Harper-lo, Lolo, Lowly, Lowly-worms, 

March 26, 2013 you turned FOUR years old!  What a four years it has been, Lolo.  You are such a fun, spirited little girl who is CONSTANTLY keeping us on our toes.  You are finally showing little glimpses of the 'big girl' you are going to be soon (ie, giving us a glimmer of hope that the last of our family's screaming-toddler years are behind us).  

Harper, you are the FUNNEST little one.  No matter where we are, or what we are doing, you can always find something to do.  One of your favorite things to do right now is dig around in the fridge for a snack and sneak it upstairs while mommy is folding laundry.  Some favorite snacks that we have found upstairs with you?  Butter, a jar of grape jelly with a spoon, apples, grapes, entire containers of strawberries, packages of lunchmeat, and lunchbox filled with granola bars and food coloring.  

You go to a new preschool twice a week this year, and you love it!  You know how to spell your name and sign with an 'H'.  You have been, thankfully, fully potty trained for a while now, and still bear a strong resemblance to your mommy and brother Dane-o.  Your best friend in the world is Emerson, and you want to wear a dress every day.  When you're not in your swimsuit, that is.

For your fourth birthday, we kept it pretty low-key this year.  Several weeks before, when we asked you what you wanted for your birthday, you IMMEDIATELY, without hesitation, exclaimed, "Unicorn Stomp-eez!"  Yup.  Those As Seen On TV slippers for kids that feature animals that open their eyes when you walk in them.  Ummm, okay.  You were pretty excited to open your Stomp-eez:

After you blew out candles with your fellow birthday girl 
(birthday Momo was at her house this year)
you opened up the new twirly dress that Daddy and Mommy got for you.  
You love a good twirly dress.

After enjoying cake and present-opening, we headed out with your good friend Reed to Build-A-Bear.  You picked out a pink Hello Kitty animal
And you, Reed, and Emerson had a big time stuffing and cleaning your animals at the drying station.  Aidan and Dane served as Bear Assistants this year.
Happy birthday, my sweet Harper-girl!
