Chloe's Fourth Birthday

We got to have Chloe's birthday party on her actual birthday which was a first for her and made the day even more special.  Having my first baby turn four is so bittersweet.  On one hand, it makes me so sad like every other mom of course but I always go back to when she was first born and how bad I wish I could go back to that day.  But then again I am so proud of the little lady she is becoming.  Her personality is so big, she is caring, and she is so smart.  And I am not gonna lie, having a beautiful daughter makes a momma feel good too!  She makes me look good!  But regardless of her beauty and those beautiful curls, I want her to know she is enough and she can do ANYTHING she wants.  I remember on International Women's Day, she said to me, "Mommy....I wish I could take over the world."  Of course I told her she could and smiled from the inside out.  What a beautiful thing to hear from your child.

Now back to her birthday.  Her cousins Adrianna and Ayanna spent the night with us and Chloe got to wake up with her cousins and a little mini birthday party in the kitchen.  Eric brought home two gift bags.  One from his mom and my mom since they are no longer with us and that was one of my favorite moments of the day.  Her aunts Sug and Sarah were in town from California and she hadn't seen them since she was probably one and Chloe LOVED them.  We went to eat at a Mexican Restaurant that is our favorite and Chloe always asks to go eat chips and salsa here with her Pops which is Eric's dad so she was happy.  They even sang Happy Birthday to her and gave her a sombrero!

Chloe decided she wanted to go skating this year  so that is what we did.  It was the very first birthday my mom has not been here for since her passing so that made it feel off but her twin sister and her other sister was there so that made things better.  I was so amazed at how good Chloe did skating.  She skated around holding her friends and cousin's hands just skating around the rink like she had been doing it forever.  My heart melted.  She has been into Harley Quinn (which kind of disturbs me) and all the girl superheroes so we did that as the theme.

We have always had the tradition on every one of Chloe's birthdays to let off her birthday balloons for her Nan which is Eric's mother and her grandmother she was never able to meet.  This year we did it for her my mother as well.  My nieces did it with us and it was a special moment.
