I know that I said that I would blog about you yesterday but you see my dear I had forgotten what a hectic day it was going to be for me. However I didn’t forget about you and I never could. I know that you think I have forgotten you in the car a couple of times but really I was just putting stuff in the house so that I had arms to carry you in plus you were out cold and I didn’t want to disrupt that. I think and talk about you often and even though you are more than a handful at times I still love you and you bring great joy to my life.
I love to see your face light up when I tell you how proud of you I am and how excited you get when you can do something you didn’t think that you can do. I love your giving heart for others. Not to long ago you made a whole stack of cards to give to sick people and you want to give your hair away to help make a wig for someone with cancer. How precious is that at FOUR you do these amazing things. I hope that you continue to light up the world for others like you do your family.
Just recently we had parent teacher conferences with your teacher Miss Collins. You are doing so awesome in school. You are so smart! You count the highest in both the morning and afternoon classes, you know all your letters and the sounds they make. You are even asking how to spell out words. You are a great friend in sharing toys with out a fight. You just had a couple of things that you need to work on. You need to be a leader and not a follower. We know that you want to fit in with the other kids but we want you to do what is right with fitting in with them. You also need to learn to get a tissue on your own and be a bit more independent in the classroom. We know that you are a big girl and can do it yourself. We push you to do these things at home too.
We also recently went to see Dr. O’Malley and learned that you are in the 75 percentile in both height and weight. This means you are tall for your age but also that you heavier for your age, however we are glad to see that you match your height because this means that you are very much right on track and not too thin or not too heavy! You are so beautiful! You got some of your 5 year shots so that you didn’t have to have so many at once. Mommy let you choose.
Next week we go for your big haircut. I can’t wait to see how grown up you will look. It till be better for both you and mommy and daddy. You won’t cry when we brush your hair and mommy and daddy won’t feel like they are hurting you so much. I can’t wait to see how good you look.
You are growing so big. I wish that I could put a book on your head and make it stop. One day you will be married and be a mommy of your own but first you will have to make it through your teen years! LOL.
Love, hugs, and kisses,
