Today you are 4 years old! Doesn't seem that long ago you were only 2 1/2...which is how old you were when we got to bring you home with us for good. We've been through a lot together since then. Together, we conquered the lonnnnng process of potty training, and this year when you went to "big girl panties" full time, you managed to go a really long time with NO accidents at all! We were so proud of you for doing so well!
Together, we've watched your little sister Meghan grow from a little tiny baby who didn't do very much besides eat, sleep and poop, into the "almost big girl" that she is today...able to walk, talk (a bit!) and most importantly, PLAY with you! You are such a good big sister to her, and she's going to be learning so much from you in the days and years to come.
We've had our rough times too...you have some difficulty catching on to things...learning and processing them in your little mind. Mommy gets frustrated too easily, and I know that doesn't help, and I'm really working on doing better! Tomorrow is the beginning of a brand new year, and that's one of the things I've promised myself I'd really try to do better, and not be so hard on you for a lot of things.
You are definitely Daddy's Girl at this point, and he loves you SO much, just as I do! He's told me that when he comes home from work, and you come running into the living room with an excited "HI DADDY!" and hugs and kisses for him, that it just melts his heart every single time. :)
Happy Birthday, sweet Destiny! We love you more and more each day!
