Today is Arden’s fourth birthday! In honor of the occasion, she asked that I share some of her impressive stats and fun trivia with you:
Arden Lily Jensen
Arden Lily, Ardentina (as in “Don’t cry for me, Ardentina”), Ardenza (rhymes with “credenza”), Bug, Lady, Lil, Missy, Muffin, Muppet, My Boo, Nugget, Snugglebunny, Stinkerbell, Stinkerella
Astrological sign and dominant traits
Capricorn: can be hard-working and obedient but also stubborn when she wants something
10: Sit, lay down, stay, come here, shake, crate, get down, go to bed, up, kisses
Larger, hairier dogs who are dominant
Knocking, door buzzers, chatter in the stairwell, poorly behaved children
Consistently sneaks in and eats cat food
Rawhide chews with Omega-3 for sensitive skin, any kind of biscuit treat
Great accomplishment last year
Losing 6 pounds! Good job, lady.
And now, a trip down memory lane:
Her first day at home (7 weeks)
After she learned to climb the stairs on her own.
Cozied up during a chilly Arizona winter!
Showing off her Christmas parka and Pablo, her fake boyfriend until she chewed open his flank.
Her first “glamour shot” (vaseline on the lens)
Awww…who can go to work after seeing a face like that?
Lounging in the summer sun at Grandma and Papa’s house while dad’s out of town.
Still as “Offred” from her one-woman production of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale
Dressed for dinner the only time she’s been able to fly back to Phoenix to see Grandma and Papa.
In DC with her new stepsister Kitty.
Happy birthday, beautiful!
