Happy 4th Birthday!

Dear Elena,

I know you were very excited to say 'I'm four" instead of "I'm three" on April 30th, 2009. You'd been practicing it for days! I hope you had a great time with your friends at your Ice Cream Chef party. I know we loved celebrating it with you.

You and the rest of the Strawbunch making strawberry ice cream

You rolling the ice cream ball down the hill to mix it

Your Daddy and I are so proud of you, every day. You are the hardest working kid I know. You are more patient, understanding, and focused than a lot of adults I know. Sometimes I feel bad that I have you work so hard...but seeing you grow and change and progress from year to year makes me happier than you can imagine. I know you will be able to run and jump by yourself some day, and I know you will play on a soccer team like you keep talking about. Your Daddy and your sister and I will be your loudest cheerleaders!

We love you always,

Mommy and Daddy and Vivian
