Fabulous 4




I feel like I didn't add enough about my fabulous four year old. About how sweet she is and what a great big sister she is. She can be so concerned about her "little buddy" (Tucker), she'll put her arm around him and help lead him to wherever. She defends him when a little friend isn't so nice, which is really funny because in the big sister tradition-she's the meanest. I often find her shoving him or chasing him with teeth clenched and nails ready to attack. But this is a nice post so we won't go into that! We all have our moments. She's not really a cuddler but sometimes she won't stop hugging or snuggling, how I love those rare, random occasions. Some of her favorites:
*princess Polly Pockets, she'll play forever with these funny, rubber dollies
*her Noni
*singing, any song will do but her favorite is I'll Follow Him In Faith or Going Campin
*ice, for the longest time she refused ice but one day at breakfast she said she changed her mind and ice is now her favorite.
*Sunday dresses that twirl
*ANYTHING Tinker Bell
*movies-Annie, Cinderella, Island Princess
*to be tickled, not the annoying tickle but the soft, relaxing tickle. She insists on being tickled before bed and begs for "one more minute"
*Primary, she loves her teacher Sister Knollmiller and is always so excited to sing the new songs she learned in Singing Time
*anything active: riding her scooter, running, dancing, chasing bubbles
*she loves to camp, begs us to take her camping
How we love our little princess. She brings humor, love, and kindness into our home. She has such a sassy attitude I can't help but laugh when she dishes it out, it worries me though for the dreaded teenage years. She has spunk and personality that make even the hardest hearts smile.

she is a cute little miss. I always remember that when she was just tiny you taught her to call her knee her patella. I just thought that was so cute. I sure she knows a ton more but unfortunately my mom did NOT do that so that is where my knowledge ends. We should stop being retarded and hang out soon. i have a van now so i can go places. call me.
