Mum's post: Happy 4th Birthday Chia!

Four years ago I watched the sun rise over these rice paddy's


...while reflecting on the beauty of this little one

Nanni came all the way from Australia for your birth

You showed signs of character right away, and you always seemed to have a secret that you snickered at in your sleep

Big sister was thrilled that you'd finally arrived

Pretty soon we found out what those snickers and smiles were all about...
(if you're wondering, the next 4 pix were taken in the space of about 20 mins, and yes the mess is on the pillows, bedhead, sheets, curtains, and carpet)

Although you did seem a bit bewildered at all the fuss

You were quickly smirking again

We never knew when your mood would change (you'd hold your head up for hours like this & yell bloody murder from 2 days old)

There were occasional glimpses of the dreamy side of you

And like all babies, you were cute as a button when sleeping (something you didn't care much for from around 2 months old)

Happy 4th Birthday Chia!

You are full of life, bring joy to our lives and you're also...


Cuddly


Full of character

Crazy


Serious

Cute

Energetic

Pleased


Excited

Silly

Thoughtful


Once Chia has decided to do something she doesn't give up easily. She also manages to laugh at almost anything & brings joy into our lives. We love you Chia -Muah!





She also loves doing silly, crazy things. Check out this game she invented using a ball & umbrella. :)






And here she is enjoying pizza at Shakey's. Daddy & I had some business to do so we took her along for the day. We rarely spend time with just Chia, so she was very happy for all the attention.

Happy Happy Birthday Chia. I have to say I sure would be proud to be a godmother to a shockingly cute & crazy kid like Chia. What a loveable fireball.
