Happy Birthday Solstice baby!

This was taken 4 years ago, on June 20th. It's 4 days past my due date, and i'm roughly the size of a whale. It was super hot that day, and we hiked down to the creek to play in the water and cool off. Later that evening i go into labor and on June 21st, the Summer Solstice, my little Sage makes her way into the world.

She was born at 2:57am and weighed in at 8lbs 7oz and is 21 inches long. So tiny compared to my boy who was over 9lbs!!
We had been calling her our spring baby all along, and then she waited until the first day of summer to be born. :)

Happy Birthday Sunshine!

i finally got to give her the Dragonfly's Hollow doll, who just happens to be named Summer. How perfect is that??

Another super cool gift that she received was the My fairy Garden book by Maggie Bateson. The entire book transforms into a 3-d pop up fairy garden village, with doors that open, and paperdoll fairies. Inside there is an envelope to store all the fairies when not in use. This was actually a garage sale treasure my mom scored!

My parents and sister made a surprise visit for Sage birthday. We don't get to see them to often, since they live out of state, so it was really special for her.

Later that afternoon we played in the creek.

It's so hard to believe it has been 4 years already. It has been an amazing journey so far, and i look forward to all the days ahead of us. Happy Birthday Beautiful girl!
Happy Summer Solstice!

"That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
