Four years old...I can't believe our baby is FOUR! You are such a sweet little girl. This year has been such a big one for you. You started preschool and love it! You have changed so much in the last 12 months. One of the changes is how tall you have grown...the baby in you is beginning to disappear. ;( You are 42 inches tall and weigh 30 lbs. You wear a size 7-8 shoe and 4T clothes.
I think I mentioned this last year but not a day goes by where someone doesn't mention how beautiful you are...your smile is contagious and you can make others laugh with your sweetness. You are so very tenderhearted but pretty stubborn at the same time. There is quite a bit of sass in there as well but we wouldn't want you any other way.

You and Wyatt have an amazing relationship and love to be together. I hope this NEVER changes. Don't get me wrong there are days you fight but for the most part you guys just want to be together. You play together at school and all of Wyatt's friend's even call you "Sis." Something else I hope never changes. I find you both snuggled on the couch together all the time. It's so sweet! You for sure keep us all on our toes! There isn't ever a dull moment with you!
You can count to 20, sing your ABC's, sing your color in Spanish, and write your name. You LOVE to dance...like LOVE it! You have dance every Monday night and literally count down the days. You "practice" on your own time and even know the positions of ballet. You rock!!
You want to play t-ball this summer so we have signed you up....because of how close you and Wyatt are in age you will be playing with the girls from his class as well as yours...you are VERY excited about this. We are a little nervous as you and sports that have balls haven't ever met. ;/ I am sure it will be GREAT! ;)
You LOVE to bake with me and I love it too! You have our sugar cookie recipe memorized and it's so fun to quiz you as we bake on what goes in next...You are a HELPER to the max. You love to help fold laundry and even clean the bathrooms but ask you to clean up the mess YOU made and it's as if we are cutting off a leg. LOL!
Oh Sis...you currently have a new love for Barbie's and it's so sweet. You love baby dolls and got a new American Girl doll for your b-day. Her name is Lea Clark and she is from STL. It's so sweet to see you play with babies. God knew what he was doing when he put the "motherly instinct" in girls/women. You are a nurturer for sure! I don't think anything will top your love for Disney princesses though and Cinderella is still holding on as your favorite!
You are a Daddy's girl as well! Daddy lays with you most nights AS soon as he gets home from work. It's so sweet! You both have a routine and I am so glad it's something you both hold onto something so special. I remember nights when you were an infant your Daddy rocking you...and rocking you...and rocking you. I pray it's something that lasts for a VERY LONG time!
You got to spend birthday #3 at Disney and we kept asking how we were going to top that?!?!? Well Aunt Shelly and Uncle Kyle made it happen again. ;) YAHOO!!! Such a special treat!
Words can't express our love for you, they just can't. You are our baby girl, peanut pie, loaney lou, sloaney girl, sloaney bologney, louis P, and most of all our Sloane Michelle Schmitz...the little girl that completes our family. We love you!!!
