Kaylia Turns Four

We were pursuing blossoms yesterday. My mom called to inform us that the apple trees were at their best right now, so we dropped everything, and went to see the blossoms.

June 2013 027

It worked out perfectly, because Kaylia turned four last week, and I’ve been wanting to do a little photo shoot with her, so she did some poses for me.




I take pictures of my family all the time, but this is the first time when I’ve taken one of the girls with me on a photo spree, with a specific purpose in mind. It was so much fun, and she cooperated really well, but after a good amount of pictures, she suddenly announced, “I’m done taking pictures now, Mommy.”


Because Kaylia had a birthday, it’s her turn to share a list of favorites! (You can see last year’s list here.)

Favorite Breakfast: Pancakes

Favorite Lunch: Sandwiches

Favorite Supper: Shepherd’s Pie

Favorite Snack: Raisins

Favorite Clothes: Dresses. Any kind.

Favorite Books: Strawberry Shortcake and the Winter That Would Not End, Brambly Hedge, and Little House on the Prairie books

Favorite Toys: Polly Pockets, and anything Anika is playing with

Favorite Thing to Do: Color, pick dandelions

Oh, how we all love this sweet girl! Anika and Kaylia love each other as hard as they fight with each other, and the hugs, screams, and snuggles all flow freely between them.

She’s a feisty one, and fills our days with strong opinions, independence, hilarious comments, and sweet smiles. She skips everywhere, talks constantly, and is always dragging up a stool to help me in the kitchen.

Can’t believe she’s four already, but I wouldn’t wish her any other age!

  1. Awww i also have a four year old daughter who loves dresses. They are such blessings our little girls:) Happy Birthday Kaylia!!!!

  2. Your pictures of Kaylia are lovely. But, that first one of the blossoms is GORGEOUS! I also love your comment, “I wouldn’t wish her any other age”. So true. Every age has such wonderful aspects. If only I could convince my 8-year-old of this fact. She just wants to be 16. 😦
