Guess who's 4 years old?????

August 10th was Malia's 4th birthday. August 10th is also the day that our plane landed in the USA back in 2007 after returning from China, and Malia became a US citizen. So this day has a double meaning for all of us.

We made cupcakes for her to take to school to share with her friends, she was sooooo excited about that! This is the first birthday where I "think" she might understand what its about. She knows she is 4 now and will tell you she is 4 when you ask her. She was very excited to get presents too, lol.

First we went to our local Chinese restaurant to have dinner. The older gentlemen there adores Malia.

Yes, she got a batman figurine. At her daycare she is the only girl in her class, so all I hear when we come home is batman. When she jumps over something on the floor or jumps down the steps or off the couch she puts her arms out and yells BATMAN!

And the best present (at least to me) is the Baby Born doll that pee's in the potty! I'm hoping and praying that she will think its cool and try it herself. She is still no where near ready to be potty trained. *sigh* I even got her some cute "big girl" pants but told her she could not wear them until she goes potty in the "big girl" potty.

Malia and Megan decorated the cake and had fun doing it.

Happy Belated Birthday Malia! Looks like you had a fun party!

Lia is no where near being potty trained either and she'll be four in January. I'm going to try a weekend after we return from vacation and let you know how it goes.
