S-I-X. You’ve crossed over from one hand to one hand plus one finger.
Reading, writing, storytelling and math. You are so good at math!
I feel like you’ve grown up and changed so much in just the last couple weeks. Your vocabulary. Your desire to have one-on-one time. To tell us everything that is going on. You have a strong need to decompress!
You are really figuring yourself out now that you are in school for the day. And yet, you still haven’t found your indoor voice! One day, one day!
You are the epitome of sugar and spice. When you are sweet you are sugary sweet, but when you are tired, that spicy side comes out.
You might get mad at your sisters (hey, don’t touch the LEGOs), but you really would do pretty much anything for them (except clean up their rooms or put their clothes away. But really, who wants to do that)?
At your parent-teacher conference, your teacher told us how helpful and tidy you are. You even help your classmates tie their shoes! Part of your assessment was to write a story that had a beginning, middle and end, complete with illustrations.
The first page “One day I woke up and my mom had a baby!” The illustration was me with a new baby B on my lap in the bathroom. The story goes on to tell of us going to the hospital, mommy’s friend coming over and then us coming home! I can’t wait to get that book and show it to your sister one day. You never really talk about it or talked about it, and yet it was the first thing you thought to write about. You love your matching evensies! My 2 and 4 seem to have a special bond.
You make us proud daily and I hope you know that. I also hope you make yourself proud, because you should be!
Smart. Fiesty. Eager. Talkative. Loving. Kind. Awesome.
