Emma’s 4th Year Birthday Questions

I can’t believe my firstborn is now FOUR years old. I have been a mom for 4 years now???

Emma through the years:
Year 1:

Year 2:

Year 3:

Year 4:

Emma is growing up to be quite a special young lady. I feel so lucky to have her as a daughter and she is really the best sister ever to Max. She hates to hear him cry and will always let him have his way to make him happy.

So cute how much these 2 love each other. Melts a mother's heart!!! ????????


I don’t know many 4 year olds that has her patience and empathy. She also continues to be the most extroverted introvert that I know. She LOVES people and adventures but when around a crowd or people/situations she doesn’t know, she is super shy and cautious. She started wearing glasses this year and we recently upgraded her frames to a pair from Jonas Paul Eyewear which we love and highly recommend if you are looking for stylish kid glasses!


She is also still taking ballet and absolutely loves it. We are taking a break from it this summer to try soccer (much to her dismay) but we will return to it in the fall again. Meanwhile her first big recital is next month!!!

Saturday ballet class ????

This past year was filled with lots of Disneyland since we had an annual pass (but it just expired :()

Her favorite ride was definitely It’s A Small World and the ferris wheel and she especially loved watching all of the parades, fireworks, and shows.
Emma's new favorite are Ferris wheels. What happened to my scaredy-cat? ???? ????

Seriously the best parade!!

We had a few trips this year including our annual trip to Oklahoma, a roadtrip to Carlsbad Caverns, and a weekend staycation at the new Great Wolf Lodge. Emma LOVES vacations and adventures and I know she enjoyed each of these because she is always asking when can we go back to these places :)


All of us howling at the Great Wolf Lodge hehe

She is almost complete with her first year of preschool too! She has grown so much this past year and learned so much! I’m very proud of her and it makes me look forward to when she starts Kindergarten!

For her birthday this year we celebrated with a movie (Zootopia), one of her favorite foods, pizza, Jamba Juice, and Chuck E Cheese.


Here are the answers to her birthday questions this year with my comments in parentheses.

1. What is your favorite color? pink and gold
