Four years ago you were born during a blizzard. You screamed for hours (and let’s face it, basically for the first 4 months of your life).  We wondered what we got ourselves into 🙂  Today you turned 4 and it’s hard to believe you once used to cry when somone sneezed.  Now you are definitely our “easy” daughter.  The one we can count on to be in a happy mood and be well-behaved in public 99% of the time.  You are the one who happily thinks a trip to Walgreens is an adventure (and sometimes with your little sister it really is). Last week at Parent Teacher Conferences your teacher said: “Sabrina never has a bad day.”

And it’s true.  You wake up each morning with your doggie tucked under one arm, your beloved toy turtle under your other and a big smile and greet us with “Good Morning!!”  I hope you never lose your positive outlook and your ability to make any activity fun.

Daddy and I are so proud of how you are with Thérèse.  You are concerned when she cries and so happy for her when she learns something new.  You sing to her in the car when she gets fussy and hold her hand across the aisle in the backseat and you make her laugh like nobody else can.  She is so lucky to have you.  And so are we.

Happy Birthday my sweet, sensitive, loving and happy girl!


and a trip down memory lane…
