four

My girl turned four several months back.

She is just the best. I absolutely love this stage she is in. I wish I could do her personality justice by trying to describe her with words, but I feel like she is someone you have to experience. She is just so unique and precious and special. I don't know what it is about her, but I just want to memorize every single thing about her and never forget. She says and does the sweetest, cutest and funniest things.

She is so thoughtful and caring. She always looks for ways to be sweet with her siblings, or with her Daddy and me. Her spirit is just so genuinely kind and gentle.

She is a girly girl through and through. She loves any and every thing pink, sparkly, twirly. Dresses, fancy things, ballet, etc. are all things she loves.

She loves My Little Ponies, Trolls, and the movie Sing. This year she became very into make believe play. She loves playing games with her ponies and trolls, playing with her doll house, making "houses" for all of her little guys with her magnatiles, playing Sing where she acts out the songs they sing and dance to. She is more into the type of make believe where she has people to "work" rather than the type such as pretending in the play kitchen, or playing house and such.

Next month she is going to start a dance class, which she has been asking to do for about a year now. She is really looking forward to this! I am especially looking forward to seeing her in her sweet little uniform :)

She has been taking a group piano class this year with her sister, and has her recital coming up in August. She has excelled at this, and it has come to her very naturally. I don't think we will continue with music for a few more years, but it was great to get a foundation for her, and she has enjoyed it a lot.

She seems to really have a knack for words and language. Some of the vocabulary she uses blows our minds. Sometimes we are not even sure how she knows a word or where she heard it. If I tell her what a written word says once, she will remember it. My prediction is she will excel in language arts in her school years.

This lady is very sensitive. She has big feelings, whatever those feelings may be. She loves BIG. When she's happy, she is insanely happy. When she's sad, her entire life is ruined and heart completely broken. She is a giant ball of joy 98% of the time.

She is also very assertive and totally confident in who she is, and I LOVE that about her, because I'm not really like that. She is not afraid to make friends, go to new places, or chat with people. If someone is mean to her or someone else, she has no problem standing up for what is right. I hope she never ever loses this trait!


She has taken on the big sister role so well. She absolutely adores her little brothers and is so sweet and patient with them. She loves to hug and kiss them, and does so often. She comforts them often when they are sad or get hurt. I think they will have a sweet bond and relationship as they grow.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that she is only 4! Part of it is the way she talks, part of it is her maturity level, and part of it is the fact that she and her sister do many of the same things at the same level, so its easy to forget that she is a year and a half younger. Sometimes I see that younger side (totally age appropriate side) of her come out and it makes me glad she is not growing up too quickly :)

Some of my favorite things she has said to me recently are 
  • "Mom, I'm going to live with you forever. Actually, I'm going to live with you FIVE ever, because five is longer than four." I mean. 
  • One night I had a bad headache so my husband was going to take the kids to the park, and she came over to me on the couch and was being so sweet to me and then said "I just want you to know that we'll always be together, because of the connection that's in our hearts." Seriously, no idea where she gets these things! 
  • She had worked hard on something, and I told her so, and she replied "It wasn't my work. It was my heart that guided me." 

I am absolutely obsessed with her. I cannot get enough. I still can't believe I get to be her mom. She is one of the most insanely awesome people I have ever met. I can't wait to keep watching her grow!
