You turn FIVE today!!! I know I say it every year and I will continue to say it every year but goodness...where does the time go? 5 years ago today we were wearing shorts and it still stands to be the hottest March on record with 13 consecutive days at a record high. It was 87 degrees the day we brought you home from the hospital...and today...there is snow on the ground?!?!!? I woke up extra early and braved the snow to get donuts for breakfast. When I told you I had them for you your response was..."is that a healthy breakfast choice?" Wow!?!?! Really?!?!!? That's pretty crazy coming from someone who only eats about 3 different foods.
You are the most tenderhearted little girl EVER! Your smile is VERY contagious and we still get compliments daily on how beautiful you are. It's so true. You have a face that will light up a room and a personality that is so sweet. You are always watching out for others and want others to be happy. You are such a little mama. Baby dolls are high up on that toy list right now...
Peanut Pie, you are currently in Pre-K on M, W, and F. We recently had parent teacher conf. and your teacher says you are more than ready for Kindergarten. That makes this teacher mama happy!!!
Dance is still #1 on your list of activities. You are really good at it too! You are currently dancing with other girls Wyatt's age. You totally hold your own and no one knows you are almost 2 years younger than them. Sis, you currently also tried Upward Cheer and love it...once you get there. It's the getting there that's tough. We have had many conversations about how we aren't quitters. ;)
You adore your brother and still miss him so much on the days he is at school full day. You guys play together pretty much all day and for the most part get along really well. You can build a LEGO and ride bikes with the best of them but aren't a fan of getting your hands dirty. You prefer to use a different fork for each item of food. Speaking of food...you are the picky one of the family. Your food groups are pretty much mac and cheese (but only a certain kind), rotisserie chicken, and oranges WITH the skin. ;) We are working on the food with you. LOL!
You wear 5t clothes and a size 11.5 shoe. You are 43.5 inches tall and 33 lbs (on a good day;). People say you look just like your brother, who tends to favor your Dad but lately some people have said you look like me. I have to say it's nice to hear every once in a while. LOL!
Even if you don't look like me you are attached to my hip lately....like REALLY attached. Some days I love it, other days I need to do things like cook, clean, do laundry, etc. Which you then tell me I can do those things while holding you and you will help me. Ha! Good thing you are a light weight!!!
Your favorite Disney princess is still Cinderella and that was the theme for your 5th b-day parties. Yes, I said parties. You have the never ending b-day this year. It's totally fine though...I don't mind one bit! The past 2 years we have been at Disney over your actual b-day so this year has been so fun to celebrate you at all your favorite places at home! We leave for Disney on Friday so you totally get the best of both worlds our little LoanieLou.
We love you so much and pray you continue to grow into a beautiful little girl...inside and out!
Happy 5th Birthday Sis!!!
