Then after this early morning activity and the big kids and Daddy had headed off, we got ready and raced into town to join our very dear friend Nicki at a cafe for a spot of coffee (or hot chocolate in the wee princess's case) and cake.Nicki gave her a cute little 'special things' container, which has since taken pride of place on her dressing table. We went to Martha's Pantry, a cute little cafe in central Wellington. I happened to mention that it was Tessa's birthday and the lovely staff popped a candle in her chosen slice of gorgeous pink cake. Unfortunately the candle proved slightly worrisome for Tess and she was rather wary of getting too close (clever chicken!), so she and I blew it out together.
After this lovely morning tea, I dropped Tess to kindy and and went to work as usual. Our afternoon was spent with our family and Tess had a lovely time opening the rest of her presents so far.
The Ice Age 3 dvd was a great hit - she loves it!!
So that was her day, and it was lovely :-). It seems like only a blink of an eye since she was born, so teeny tiny and snuggled up in my arms and here she is, a lovely, happy, cheeky, chatty, singing, dancing little bundle of four year old energy!! Can the growing up part just slow down now please??!! My baby isn't a baby any more and this Mama is just a wee bit sad. And yet so very proud of my delightful little girl <3
