A Bug’s Life

On Monday, my oldest daughter turned 4.  Where has the time gone? This is Bug when she was just minutes old, greeting the world with a wave.  So much has changed, and yet so much is the same.

But she doesn’t really have time for boring things like cuddles.  She is very content to play with her toys, and keep tabs on everyone in our home.

She is always smiling, and brings so much joy into our lives.

She has a serious side, too.  At times she seems much older than she actually is, and we have to remind ourselves that she is still a child.

And, she keeps us laughing all the time.  From the funny things she does:

To her hilarious facial expressions:

Few things make a day better than a lollipop.

Drawing is one of Bug’s favorite pastimes.

First time drawing a face.  Mommy especially loves the lips!
