Summer Postcard No. 3 (2012)

I’m trying to re-find my blogging rhythm with a series of summer postcards, sharing a daily photo with a snippet of text. View the entire summer postcard series here.

Because you only turn four and a half years old once.

After weeks of counting down to July 30th, the day has arrived and our daughter will finally call herself four and a half. There’s no rounding up with this girl.


  1. So fun! She’s growing up so fast and becoming a beautiful little lady!

  2. Happy 4 1/2! :-) We did celebrate that milestone too – such an important one… ;-)

  3. Any time I’ve called her four and a half over the past month she’s corrected me. “Mom, I won’t be four and a half until July 30th.” I stand corrected.

  4. I’m all about celebrating half birthdays!!!! Yay Miss Leyba <3

  5. Happy half-birthday from the East Coast. Half-Birthdays are a great way to teach fractions.

  6. 4 1/2 already!! i can hardly believe it. what a grown-up age! :)

  7. What a fantastic half birthday celebration, she’s getting so old! Wish I could’ve been there!
