Stats first: You weigh 38 lbs and are 41.5 inches tall.
And now a list of things I love about you right now:
-You can read! Ms. Audra, your Pre-K teacher, sends home lots of "level 1" books to help you practice. You're great at sounding out words and are so proud of yourself when you finish a book!
-You love to wear your hair in a "side poof ball." You beg me quite often for a "side braid," but I don't know how to do that!
-You're still very much into princesses and horses. You also love makeup, lip gloss, high heels, sparkly tights, and dresses.
-Last week you told me that you "could not use the green towel because green does not look good with you."
-You are silly beyond belief. You still like to talk with a "Scarlet O'Hara" accent and will do just about anything for a laugh.
-You're stubborn! You've earned more spankings than anyone. :)
-You're a picky, picky eater. You know that you have to eat "five bites" of whatever we put in front of you, but you'll do just about anything to get out of them.
-You have a fantastic imagination. You will play and play and play for hours...mostly with your princess figurines or toy animals. I LOVE listening to you narrate your play.
-You can dress yourself. You can take a shower by yourself. You still need help brushing your hair.
-You love Thatcher and Emmy and enjoy playing with them. You tend to be more rough with them than you are gentle, though.
-You share a love/hate relationship with Harris. Y'all can be so kind to each other, but you often fight about whether things are "cool" or "pretty." At the end of the day, you don't really want to do anything without him. He was sick recently and couldn't go to the Publix Easter Egg Hunt. You decided you didn't want to go if he couldn't be a part.
-You are taking ballet at school and want to start taking baton lessons. I have no idea where they offer baton lessons.
-Hortie, your stuffed elephant, is still by your side. You love elephants in general (Alabama is your second favorite football team) and are always excited to see one, whether it's on tv, in a magazine, or at the circus.
-Every once in a while you'll still fall asleep during room time. We have to watch it, though, because even a little power nap will keep you up at night!
-You LOVE to snuggle and climb in the bed with Daddy every single morning before we start getting ready for the day.
-"Tom and Jerry" and "America's Funniest Home Videos" are some of your favorite shows these days.
-You sing lots of songs from the radio: "Call Me, Maybe," Taylor Swift's "Never Getting Back Together," and Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" are favorites. You also still love "Potiphar's Wife" from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
-You do not like riding your bike. Or anything else that requires you to sweat, really.
-Your personality fills a room.
I love you so very, very much.
