collette. how did it happen? how could you possibly be four years old today? i don't know. but i feel like if there is an age to bottle forever, this might be your year. you have never been sweeter and more loving than you are now. your hugs are so tight you fold your fold your lips in and shake a little bit with the effort. (they are great hugs by the way, if you can get one from her, do it.) everything is beautiful and you are not afraid to tell us. yellow is your favorite color. who could possibly argue with that? i know for a fact i never will. happy birthday my love. i know someday you will grow up to be a beautiful, smart, wonderful woman. but for now, i am going to sit back and enjoy four. ok?
