Kaydence at FOUR!

I never wanted a little girl. When I imagined myself with kids I always pictured boys. I am one of 4 girls and my mother's side of the family is full of them, it's the Johnson "curse." So when I found out I was pregnant with a little girl, I was at a loss. What was I going to do with a little girl? I am really not 'girly.' I hate high heels, I wear make up almost never, and dresses have never been my thing (my thighs rub together and the chafing is just awful).

So here we are 4 years later, and I couldn't imagine my life without a little girl.

At only 4 years old Kaydence is such a little spirit. So timid and shy when in new situations and around new people, but the most outgoing and boisterous little girl when in her comfort zone. She has no concept of personal space and prefers to be in yours. At only four she is a bookworm. Choosing books well beyond her age level and even reading small words. 

She will choose balloons, bubbles, and empty boxes over toys any day, and being outdoors is really her thing. She is a sour patch kid; bitter as ever when things aren't going her way, yet sweet as can be when she wants to be. She knows her brother's buttons and pushes them often, yet she hates being without him. He is the yin to her yang. She is a dancer! The most graceful, petite, long legged and perfect ballerina. It's her niche, for sure. Crafting is also her thing. Give her paint, paper, crayons, glitter, googly eyes, modeling clay, and whatever other craft item you can think of and she will be happily entertained for hours. She is all girl and loves everything pink, purple, tulle and glittery. She is articulate, oh so articulate. There are times when I wonder if I am speaking with a four year old or forty year old. 

I am so in love with her spunky personality and large spirit; and although she is in a phase where that spunk can be a little overbearing and hard to handle at times, she sure wouldn't be Kaydence without it.

My Dearest Kaydence,

I never wanted wanted a little girl, but the moment the doctor placed your tiny 6lb 13oz body in my arms, I knew I wanted YOU! You are everything I could have never imagined in a little girl and my very first true love. 

Happy 4th Birthday my sweet Kaydence Bug. Mommy & Daddy love you so very much!
