Christina Lucia is 4 today!

My baby girl turns 4 today.  Amazing.  This has been an incredible year for her.  We have seen such momentous shifts in her personality, courage and ability to connect.  She started pre-school this year, and we all remember I did it kicking and screaming but it has turned out to be the BEST decision we could have made.  She has become so much more confident and happy.  She has a lot of friends and has begun connecting with people on her own.  She has surprised us with her athleticism which is showing up more and more as she gets comfortable in her own skin.  She has a brilliant mind which her teachers are always commenting on.  She has tons of creative talent that I can't wait to see blossom over the years.  I am so lucky, so blessed,  so privileged to parent her.
