Maia Turns 4!

Posted on: July 18, 2015

[Kerean] I can’t believe that our Maia Bear is four years old! As a parent, it seems so much like she is growing up too quickly but in reality, she is still so little – forever our big girl baby. Caution: Don’t ever call her a baby while she is in earshot. You will regret it and she will not skip a beat in correcting you; “I am not a baby!” Or, “I am a big girl and a big sister!” And of course, “I am four years old!”

She is all of the above and very proud of it!

Before her birthday celebration a few weeks ago, I photographed Maia in her birthday outfit; a dress she has since requested to wear around the house just because. It’s a great “spin around dress” and her favorite color.

Unlike previous years, we didn’t take many photos of the party. It wasn’t until the cake that we thought to pick up a camera. Matt snapped these photos that I am adding only to remind Maia of her first birthday cake that wasn’t made by me. For all previous birthdays, I made Maia’s cakes myself since they had to be dairy free. I am most proud of last year’s dinosaur cake!

For her fourth birthday, we got her a fancy vegan cake from Some Crust Bakery. It was huge and delicious!

Maia looks through the mermaid/merman cutout at her cake.

It was very windy so the cutout shielded the candles...Maia blows them out!

She loves this part - happy birthday song and cake!
