She calls me “Dad.”

Many of you probably already know this, but last Tuesday, the 20th, was my daughter Erica’s fourth birthday. I went to Chatham for the weekend to celebrate with her and her friends and family, and had a great time.

The party went off incredibly well, due in every part to Mandy’s efforts – from the decorations, to the food served throughout the day, to baking an elaborate birthday cake (in the shape of a castle, pictured below), Mandy poured all of herself into making the party and the weekend an incredible success for Erica.

My personal favourite moment of the weekend was when I was trying to dance with Erica, trying to shake my body with her and teach her to as a joke, when instead she insisted I pick her up and dance with her in a more traditional way, holding hands and spinning around. She folded each of her tiny little fingers in between mine, and stole my heart all over again.

My baby is four now, and growing so much. What a world… what a fast, fast-moving world…

    Awesome cake!

    Glad the party went well and that you survived the first big birthday bash, next birthday milestone – sleepover parties aka: giggling/screaming girls all night. ;)
