On April 17, you turned 4 YEARS OLD!!!! I spent some time looking back at the posts I’ve written about you over the past 4 years, and I just can’t believe you are really 4. It has all gone by soooo fast.
You really do keep us on our toes these days. You are a bundle of energy, and you can go full speed ALL DAY! You love playing outside, riding your bike, playing in the garden, and playing on your swing set (as long as we get rid of the spider webs first). You can now coast and pick up your feet on your Skuut bike. You will probably be ready for a pedal bike (with NO training wheels) before you know it.
You still love going to school and seem to be thriving there. You’ve made some good little friends this year. Looks like most of them will be in your next year too, so that’s going to be fun! You occasionally have a listening issue at school (and home too J), but Teacher Megan is pretty good at getting you back on task.
You can be a handful sometimes. As mentioned above, sometimes you have an aversion to listening. It’s been a frustration of ours since you turned 3! You can talk my ear off! You can go for a half hour straight without missing a beat! Especially in the car, where are the ultimate back seat driver! “Mommy, why are you driving so fast, why are you driving so slow, why are you stopping, why are you going!” I never knew a 4 year old could be such a master driver!
All of your cute little quirks aside, you are so loving and caring and kind hearted. You have so much empathy for other people. You tell me you love me about 50 times a day. You love hugs and kisses. You are a great big sister. Dylan adores you. Your Papa and I adore you too.
Here are some of your favorites right now:
TV Show: Max & Ruby
Movie: Star Wars (but you have to watch it with Papa
Food: Popcorn or cereal with no milk, no spoon
Drink: apple juice
Here are your 4 year old stats:
Weight: 36 pounds – 23rd Percentile
Height: 42.1 inches – 91st Percentile
I think you will just be tall and skinny…poor you!
We couldn’t love you any more baby girl. Try to slow down the growing up just a little !
Love you to pieces,
