4 years of Lucy Matisse

Lucy turned 4 on Monday and we have been celebrating all week long! Her request was a princess, puppy, bike party. She asked for a pet skunk (for real) or a pet mouse but we settled on a fun little balance bike. She wanted all of her guests to dress like princesses and princes, she wanted to dress like a bunny and wanted everyone to go for a group bike ride! Totally random...totallly Lucy! 

I can't help but laugh when I look at these photos simply because I spent up until age 35 not wanting kids or anything to do with kids! HAH!!! And now here I am dressed as some kind of crazy princess, all to make this kid happy! I am so grateful that my priorities changed because this little girl has added so much joy to my life. She is spirited, loud, opinionated, creative, gentle, imaginative and pure magic. Everyday with her is an adventure and every single moment in the last four years has been savored, soaked up and burned into my heart. Happy birthday my dear little Lucy Matisse!

A huge Happy birthday Lucy! Seems like you had a great party. I didn't know until I had my little girl, how very much I would have been missing without her. The joy of my life and I have been so lucky. She is not a little girl now though - all grown up. Your lovely Lucy is just so lovely and you are giving her so much to feel happy about. The creativity she has all around her and that she is freely able to participate in without judgement, is the biggest gift of all. Fantastic parenting and wonderful little girl! Adorable little bunny she makes too - I love that there was still room for a crown!

You guys are the best. I've been enjoying watching Lucy grow up since you first announced your pregnancy. What a lucky little girl she is to have parents like you both. I hope this photo will be part of your holiday card this year.

I can't believe that Miss Matisse is 4 already. It seems like yesterday that she was just a baby. I like the post that showed you holding Lucy and putting on make-up.
Time flies and your description of her personality makes me laugh. Just think, her next move will be school and that is a big step for her and especially you. She sure is a cutie.

Big hugs to Lucy! It looks like you all had a great time. I did not become a mom until 37 and I had my little girl at 42 - she's 4 too. And what a joy she is. Thanks for sharing.
