Stella is 4 years old today!

Happy Birthday to our baby girl, Stella. 

Four years ago today our girl was born. When she turned 3 months old, her dad and I drove from California to Utah to pick her up and bring her home.

Isn't she sassy, even at 3 months old?...

Blow on her head ever so lightly and this is the look you get. If you don't move quick enough, you get your nose bit.

This is when Stella still had her neck. It got lost somewhere between 2-3 years old.

Stella's favorite purple people eater chair. Don't even think of sitting in it. Not that we can, one of the springs is broken so if you lean back, you'll go ass backwards, it's not pretty. We've kept the damn thing for her highness.

 She loves a day at the beach. Although she's not much of a swimmer.

The princess does a lot of napping these days.

Happy Birthday Stella!

We love you,
Mom and Dad

Happy birthday, Stella, honey!!!

That's funny that yer folks kept the chair. Mom says we can't throw out dad's smelly old recliner fer a LONG time. An' that's the way it oughtta be!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! If I'd have known, I would have baked you a cake! But I think I might have eaten it too, so maybe it's just as well...
Anyhoo, I hope you have the most fantabulous birthday ever! Four years old, huh? I'm dating an older woman - cool (I'll be 2 in July). Wish I was there to share it with you!

Love the baby photos and the one of you on the tree. Think I'll have mom print it out so I can add it to my Stella wall next to my crate :) And how appropriate that you have a throne - it's only fitting for your regal self! Can't wait to hear what you got for your birthday, have a great one!

Lots of Love & Wet, Snorty Birthday Kisses-

Happy birthday Stella! You were an adorable baby and an even cuter toddler!

I bet your mom can't believe you're 4 years old already. Time is just flying by and you are just getting cuter.

You are so lucky to have your own chair. Do you let Gunther sit on it? How about Betty?

I hope you get lots of treats and snuggling on your special day!

Stubby xoxo
