Part Four: The Day of the Birthday


On April 19th 2010
Ella and Zoe officially turned FOUR YEARS OLD!!

That morning I woke the girls up by singing 'Happy Birthday' to them. Zoe looked at me with her big brown eyes, smiled her super sweet smile and asked in her still little girl voice 'are we four yet??'. Ella rolled over in her bed and moaned 'but I don't feeeeeel like I'm four!'. Later that day she told me that she now felt like a four-year old, that it just took her a little time to get used to it : ) She went through the same thing the following morning, but she's totally used to it now, and if Zoe slips and says they're three Ella is very quick to point out they are NOT three any more, they are FOUR!! Good thing they have each other to keep each other in line : )

The girls started out their birthday day by blowing out candles on muffins for breakfast.

Ella went first because, as she likes to remind everyone,
she came out first : )

And then it was Zoe's turn, who is just fine being second because SHE kissed my nose after she was born -- she loves hearing that part of their birth story and I love it too : )

They also opened more gifts,
and this time the goodies were from Tom and me.

Reading cards . . .

. . . and opening presents.

Zoe was super excited to see a Tinkerbelle dress . . .

. . . and Ella was equally excited to see a Cinderella dress!!

So yes, we have a dress-up drawer now full of Barbie, Princess, Fairy, Cinderella and Tinkerbelle dresses -- and lots of purses, scarves, hats, shoes, gloves and tutus as well. These girls are indeed FOUR, and playing dress-up rules at our house!
