One more week

For one more week, I get to tell people that I have a six year old, a three year old and a two year old.  Then it changes when this girl turns four:


For a couple of months now we have been threatening to make her stay in bed all day long on Feburary 2, telling her that we were going to make her stay three forever.

Then we realized she didn’t get the joke and she was genuinely concerned that we  weren’t going to let her turn four.  This was proving to be devastating because, you see, for Tia four is a stepping stone.  It’s a stepping stone to five and when she is FIVE, my friends, the world will be her oyster.

Because at FIVE she gets to climb the rock wall at the gym.  She’s going to be sorely disappointed the day after her birthday when I tell her she’s got 364 more days before that momentous event.

For now, though, I get to say she’s three.  My adorable, sweet, fun little three year old.


Incidentally, it still freaks me out when I’m recording birthdates and I have to write down that I had a baby in 2006 AND 2007.  What were we thinking?!


Just one more week…


*all photos were taken by this awesome gal, who also happens to be my sister-in-law. 


  1. Love seeing those pics again in that yummy dress!! I cannot believe that little Tia is turning 4!! Where on earth is the time going?! It is sweet to see them turning into such little ladies, so grown up in their responses to things. Love that Brooke has so many little girls to grow up with in the neigborhood 🙂

  2. Turning four seems to be a new very important stage. How beautiful Katya is! I love her pictures in that adorable dress. She is a real beauty.

  3. Still love that dress!! She is very photogenic definitely and cutie!

  4. Tia is so cute!! I love that dress on her!! adorable!

  5. You must have been thinking the same thing when we had babies in 2005 and 2006. Or maybe you just drank the same cocktail…..

  6. Dawn – I am thinking it was definately the cocktail…that poison! 🙂
