On July 17, you were 4 ¼ year old. You’re growing up so fast!
You are still my little firecracker these days. You still keep me on my toes all the time. You’ve developed a little sassy attitude lately. I say you are 4 going on 14 most of the time. You’ve picked up the phrases “whatever” and “what the heck.” You know how to roll your eyes at the appropriate times and you have what I like to call the “stink face” when you are unhappy about something. You don’t lack personality, that’s for sure!
You still love school. You continued to go to school during the summer and you have had a great time. There weren’t enough kids from the Tues/Thurs class to keep it going during summer, so you started going Mon/Wed and met a whole new group of friends. Stuff like this doesn’t seem to phase you. You make friends very easily. You will go up to older kids and introduce yourself like it’s no big deal. I couldn’t do that at 4! (as a matter of fact, I don’t know if I am really comfortable doing it at 32!) You so amaze me in that way!
We’ve been spending a lot of time outside and at the park this summer. You love playing at the park with your friend, Ellie. You two always say you’re going to play in the water, but you rarely ever get wet! You two love playing make believe and both of you have imaginary friends.
Your baby sister adores you. You can make her laugh like no one else can. You are a great big sister. You love that Dylan is getting old enough to really play with. You do pretty well with sharing your toys with her as well. You only get a little protective of your art supplies because you say she’s too young to play with them. Oh, little Mommy!
You took your first ballet class recently. You LOVED it! There was even a little recital at the end and you could NOT WAIT to get on stage! No stage fright for you! I was pretty impressed at how graceful you are, considering you are my child!
Here are some of your current favorites:
Book: still Busytown
TV Show: Jake and the Neverland Pirates
I love you my baby girl!
