Happy, happy birthday Simone! Wishing you a year of wishes coming true!
Adorable. She’s come so far. Well done Simone and crew. Happy happy Birthday!
Oh, happy happy, Simone! Welcome to the 4-year-old club.
A 4 year old miracle….What a wonderful series of pictures! I hope you get a good night’s sleep and feel much better tomorrow.
Look at that cheeky dumpling! Happy birthday Simone.
Oh, she’s so cute! Happy birthday, Simone!
I love the crayon candles.
She looks so big! The jump from 3 to 4 is amazing–she is clearly a big kid now. Happy Birthday, Simone!
I can’t stop thinking about a card I once got that I wish I had 100 copies of to send to everyone (including Simone). It had a hippopotamus standing next to a bird and two little sheep on the front. Inside it said, “Hippo birdie two ewe, Hippo birdie two ewe, Hippo birdie two ewe, Hippo birdie two ewe.” I have no idea why I’ve always found that so entertaining.
Anyway, I wish Simone the happiest of birthdays and a kick ass year.
Happy birthday! Can’t believe how much she’s changed from 0 to now!
AH! My heart nearly stopped when I saw the first photo – I was worried you had your baby early again! But okay, photos of a baby that I know grows up to be a cutie? Phew! That is a much nicer post to read from you :)
I’m kind of relieved to see I’m not the only one. Now if you could just tell me that the cheesy version of that line “I believe in miracles” started running through your head after you had the perfectly innocent thought that this is one of the reason you believe in miracles looking at Simone’s last photo…
Same here. Wow, 4 years old. Happy birthday, Simone.
Ditto! Heart stopped. Heart started again. Heart now happy.
So Cute!!! and such a journey. Yay for your little family! I am a long time “lurker” and am glad she is such a happy healthy little girl.
Happy 4th Birthday Simone.
My goodness, the changes between the 3rd and 4th year photos are immense. Simone is quite the little girl now – now more toddler/baby-ness left. She’s going to make a great Big Sister!
Hope you and Nature Baby are holding up well Alexa.
And of course that should read ‘no’ not ‘now’ doh!!!
Happy Birthday Simone! 4 is awesome! Enjoy every moment of it.
Happy birthday, Simone!!
More like from 0 to WOW!
That also means I’ve been reading along here for at least that long. Wow.
Happy birthday, Simone! They don’t call it the Fabulous Fours for nothing.
Happy Birthday Simone!
Wow…how is it that Simone is FOUR already? Happy birthday!!
Good Lord how did that happen?! Happy 4th birthday, Simone. I agree, four is awesome.
!!! What a beautiful girl!
I cannot believe it has been four years since then. Happy birthday, Simone!
Happy Birthday beautiful Simone!
Happy happy birthday girlfriend :)
Happy Birthday, Simone!
Happy birthday!! Wow, her face is really maturing. Gives me an idea of what to expect for my 3.5 year old soon.
Wow! Happy birthday to Simone (and happy day for all of you)!
I also felt my heart stop, as I thought you’d given birth to another premature baby. But I’m glad to hear your big girl is having a happy birthday, instead.
Happy Birthday, Simone! Four year olds are awesome! Now I want a cupcake :)
Happy Birthday, Simone!!!
WOW! Four years already. Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl. Hope you and the whole family are supremely well.
Happy birthday Simone! A wonderful year for a wonderful little girl.
She got bigger, but the cake got smaller!
Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!
Wishing Simone the best birthday ever.
Happiest day, Simone! And happy day to her parents, too!
Next year give her a mini-cupcake for the photo and see if she notices that they get smaller every year (except for the first photo, when she was given a celebratory bulb syringe.
My parentheses got left open. Now all the words will get out – oops.
Hooray! Happy Birthday, Simone! I can’t even believe you’re FOUR.
Wow…that is just amazing, to look at the contrast between photo 0 and photo 4. It’s like, “How is that even possible?” How does that tiny baby (any baby really, but with Simone you really see it) become this full-fledged CHILD?
Happy happy happy Birthday, Simone!!
Such a big girl! Happy birthday, Simone, you fabulous four year old, you!
Happy Birthday Simone! And many happy returns of the day.
Oh, Happy Birthday Simone! You are such an adorable child!
Happy Birthday, sweet Simone!
Oh my goodness, how is it possible? I remember so clearly when she was born (long-time lurker). Many many happy returns, Simone!
Wow!! Look at her!!
Holy crap I can’t believe she’s 4!
She’s 4?! FOUR?!?! Like, four YEARS??
When did this happen? I mean, I’ve seen all of those previous photos as they were first published here on your blog, so this should not surprise me. But still! Wasn’t it just yesterday that she was an adorably chubby bald little one-year-old? And now, she looks like a real kid– no more toddler proportions . Oh, my. How the days fly!
Happy birthday, Simone!
Happy Birthday Beautiful, BIG Girl!!!!!!!!
Rumor has it at our house that FOUR. ROCKS.
ALL the best for the coming year!
Happy birthday beautiful girl!!!!!
