Molly Nall looks like a regular 4-year-old, but this is the first time in her life she's gotten to celebrate her actual birthday.

"It only comes once every four years," the 4-year-old said while explaining what Leap Day is.

Molly's parents, Lucy and Jimmy Nall, joined their daughter's pre-school class at Cross Roads Christian to pass out cupcakes with pink icing. Each was adorned with a colorful frog on top.

"Its a leap frog! For leap day!" Molly explained.

"It's very special," Lucy Nall said while passing out the cupcakes. "We've been waiting four years for this!"

Lucy Nall says she was due with Molly March 17th of 2008, but was forced to deliver early.

Now, she and her husband couldn't imagine Molly having a more special birth date.

"She's been picking up a lot more this year because we've been making it a bigger deal because its her first real birthday," Jimmy Nall said.

For the last three years, Molly has celebrated 2 birthdays; one on February 28th and another on March 1st. While her parents plan to keep that tradition while waiting the next three years, they say that's getting harder on her 2-year-old sister, Annie.

"She sees what's going on," Jimmy Nall laughed.
