This Little Rascal is 4

Nichole turned 4 years old today. I cannot believe how fast the lat 4 years have gone. I have a hard time letting go of my baby and seeing the little girl.  But she is getting so big.

Four years ago I had no idea how much this little girl was going to change me. Once the tears over her diagnosis were gone, she fueled me with love. A love that I had never known before.

This little girl holds my heart. She has it. And I feel incredibly blessed to have her in my life. There are times when I watch her intently. I watch her every move, the way she smiles, the way she twirls her hair. She is so perfect, so beautiful. 

Just like her mommy, she loves nutella, and we like to share a slice of bread with nutella for a snack,


She is a determined little girl. I can only begin to guess all that she will be able to accomplish.

And like her sisters, she is a princess. My princess Nichole. This child is God's child, and I have been given the honor to call her my daughter. 

She makes us smile an laugh as her personality develops. Ellie's learning project at school soon become the bunny ears that got this girl jumping. Little bunny hands and cute bunny noises that melt my heart. How can I refuse when she asks for Cheetos in a bowl?

My sweet little rascal, I love you more than words can describe. You are a gift from heaven. The joy and love you bring to us are a treasure.

Nichole got lots of great birthday presents. And she wants to show you one of them.
