1, 2, 3, 4

I can hardly believe it but, my Sweet Caroline is 4. We enjoyed the day at the Galleria so that we could go to her favorite place- the American Girl Store.
She has the most precious spirit and is such a light in our lives. Our lives would be so hollow without her beautiful presence. We all just adore her.
She's very much like Chris in looks, but very much like me in personality. She is very tall and lean. Her eyes are also green like his. They have been blue until this year and now they are very much green. I thought she'd keep the blues, but alas, the one feature of me in her has left us! She is very much the social butterfly and loves to make friends. She is always busy and likes to have things her way. She speaks like she is 15 with this tiny little girl voice. I pray that I never forget the sound of it! She and my mom are very best buddies. She is very sensitive to the needs of others and is very intuitive to how others are feeling. She is smart and silly.

Her goodies from the American Girl Store. We went and ate lunch at Five Guys and then came back to have dessert here.
She loved to watch the ice skaters. Honestly, I am dreading the day I actually have to get out there and skate with her!

Caroline really loves the song "1,2,3,4" by the Plain White T's. I almost cry every time she sings it! It will always remind me of when she turned 4.
"There's only 1 thing 2 do 3 words 4 you...I love you"
