Three Weeks Behind
On August 19, our youngest girl, turned 4. We had a small gathering of family and a few friends. I say “small” but small is relative in our family. There were about 15 people here. Mycah was very excited about her party, but I think Grey was even more excited. She spent the entire week prior to the party counting down for Mycah. Mycah had a wonderful time after a bit of a rough start. She’s a stubborn child and one who wants things to go a particular way. Since she is only 4, she can’t seem to fathom that we cannot collective read her mind. Apparently she did not want to be sung to. We sang and she spent the whole birthday song pouting and almost allowed the candles to burn down before she recovered enough to blow out her candles. After that minor meltdown, things went great. I am attaching photosfor those who would like to see. Wendy was my official photographer. She always gets stuck doing this because her photos are always great and I can’t stand still long enough to think, let alone take a picture!
At every birthday for both girls I find myself thinking and talking about how they managed o come to be. Obviously, I know how they “came to be,” but that they are here and belong to Henry and me is amazing. I remember when Mycah was born. Henry was so much more relaxed than when Grey was born. I have a picture of him holding her within hours of being born. He looks so happy, she is peaceful and he is proud.
Mycah has turned into a funny little girl. Of the two girls, Mycah has inherited some of the traits that I see as my best, but the most off-putting at times. She is tenacious….stubborn. She is curious…..into everything. She is active….a monkey who is always on the verge of needing an er visit. She has a mind of her own….does not accept authority well. She is loving…..I love her.
