Today was our precious Zibing's 4th Birthday!
And hopefully the last one where she had no clue what was going on, or that it was her special day!
She's been wanting to ride her sister and brothers' bikes ever since we got home 2.5 weeks ago - but they don't have training wheels, so it doesn't work for long.
Sooooo, guess what this precious, much-loved little girl received for her birthday today?!?!?
We let her pick it out at the store. She then rode it all the way up to the cash registers...and then all the way out to our van.
Does she like it???
She loves it!
And while she is normally very good at sharing (so good that our other children have commented about it in amazement)...not so with her bike. She knows that this is Zibing's bike, and she only wants Zibing to ride it.
And that is just fine with me.
After her early-morning spin on her new bike - her day only got better. You see it was that time again...Co-Op time! Every 4th Wednesday we drive with some friends (in their 12-passenger van) to a town a little over an hour away to our Organic Food and Products Co-Op pickup.
My little healthy-food-loving girl was in Heaven! She was running around squealing:
mushrooms, spinach, broccoli, ping guos (apples), raw chickens! The list goes on, and on.....
She was just beside herself. And she was so excited about the food that she forgot to act shy around all the new people! I was glad that they got to see the real Zibing, though - and not just the back or side of her head as she pushed it into my shoulder, like alot of people see when they meet her for the first time outside of our house!
Happy 4th Birthday, Zibing...Mama and Daddy love you very much!
