With tousled hair and sleepy eyes, Brooke awoke on her birthday morn', came downstairs, and before uttering a word, did this...
A proud declaration that she is 4!!!

Again, letting us know she was proud of her
new state of "4-ness."
(she did this to everyone all day long)
When asked what her favorite gift was, she did not hesitate to say
"my nails!"
