Our Baby.... Who's not a Baby





Our youngest has just celebrated her fourth birthday! She is my baby, but she is also quick to tell me that she is NOT a baby.


She is our most independent child, by far, but also our most expressive. She is talkative, energetic, loving. She is either smiling or crying and she either makes everyone love her or dislike her.
She enjoyed her birthday very much! She first got to go on a walk with daddy. They went on a bus ride and also on a train. She said she had so much fun. While they were gone, the rest of us decorated. The children made a sign and tried to blow up balloons. The balloon thing didn't work out so well, but it was fun trying!
Later that evening, we had spaghetti for supper and then she opened her presents.
She was very excited to get some brand new Italian slippers!
Later, we ate some dolci (dessert or sweets). Earlier in the day, while she was taking a nap with daddy, my oldest daughter and myself went and picked out six little treats at the pasticeria. We bought candles and some gelato (ice cream) at another store.
I think she liked it. What do you think?!
Another year is upon us. We are truly blessed!

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
