Today is Ally's 4th birthday. She's getting tall and looks so beautiful and so grown up these days. What I love the most though is that when both my kids smile, genuinely smile, like during a belly laugh, they flash me their dimples and I immediately see their baby faces and my heart melts. But they are growing up so fast and I can see the changes in them in every set of photos I take, even if the photos are only taken a few months apart. I took these photos about a week ago when we had a warmer winter day and lots of sunshine. Brandon was actually about to lose his tooth (he did lose it later that night) and he was worried about it, but both kids knew how important it was to me to take a few photos of them to document their 6th and 4th birthdays. So they braved the chilly evening air and gave me the gorgeous photos I so badly wanted. And now my not-so-baby baby girl is 4 years old. She's sweet, sassy, smart, kind, and we are so proud of who she is and who she is becoming!
Happy 4th Birthday Alexandra! We love you so much!
