Our little girl had a birthday. Emma turned four on May 8th and its hard to believe she’s already so big.

This past year she’s grown up so much. She is such a good big sister and I love seeing her come up with games for Brendan and her to do. She’s always sure she knows what he wants and it makes me smile.

After reading about high wire walking she informed me she wanted to do it. Up high on a wire between the trees. Being a mommy, I improvised.

She asks the best questions and sometimes they seem never ending. But I love how they get me thinking and I’ve loved learning where cork comes from and how sugar cane is harvested because of her.

She’s a very special girl. We feel so blessed that she’s ours. Happy birthday, Emma-girl.
