To Plum at Four

(Late again on this birthday update – time and tax season are to blame.  But now, here we are, just around the corner from Pickle’s 6th, so Plum certainly deserves a small ode to her 4th.)

Twirl girl.

To Plum at Four

And just like that, you turned the corner from toddler to kid.  Little to big.

 

My hysterical A.

My sweet Plum with the “golden” hair and silly hula moves.

Discovering the joys of black raspberry.

You are the brightest star.  I finally understand what it means when they say someone is “beaming” because your huge smile IS sunshine.  Actual sunshine.

The cutest witch.

You love to play and be heard.  You love your own space.  Your hugs are always lovely surprises.

Fall + swings = happy

You are brave.  You love to run.  You love to help (until you don’t).  You love Elsie cat so much we worry slightly for her safety.  You are good at being part of a team.

Small person. Large rock.

You are silly and smart, fun and funny.  You are confident.  You work hard.  And more than anyone I know, the camera catches the essence of you.  Perhaps because you don’t hold back, or perhaps because you just can’t help but let your light shine through.

Yep, she's mine.

You are my middle, and perhaps – unsure when to lead and when to follow – you just decided to do it your own dang way in your own sweet time.   And I love you for it.

I have no words. ❤️

Happy birthday Plum.  Four is awesome, and so are you.

Happy 4th
