Happy Birthday to this little crazy, wonderful, talented, special, spicy, funny, long-haired, sweet, sensitive, shy, wiggly girl!
(a lot of our pictures are on another drive so we're missing pictures from 1-2 yrs :))

8.  She wasn't too fond of ballet class, when all the

Happy birthday, sweet Hattie! I loved, loved, loved reading this list because many items sound so much like Mazy - and explains why they got along so well last summer. Wish we were closer to you guys! Give Hattie a big squeeze from us. I can't believe she's 4! Big girl!

This list was wonderful, so much like Saiji in so many ways too, but also so different! These little peanuts are the best!!! I absolutely LOOOOOOVVVEEEE that little Hattie girl, I think she'll always be my favorite. I love that we were able to live so close to you when she was born and hope to someday live close again. I also feel so blessed to be "in" her circle as well as my kids and Anthony. Give her a big squeeze for me too!!!
