Today is the day you change numbers. This is something you have been asking for about 6 months. Yes, today you get to turn 4. What a fun age it will indeed be.
You are a very generous person. You often give away or share your toys with Lillian, Leeland or even other friends. Yes, somethings you hold close, but Mommy and Daddy have often commented about your gift of generosity. Your first comment when you oped up your new Anna Princess Costume was how you love it and that we should get Lillian a dress and cape tomorrow!
You sing the whole day through. Yes, often at the dinner table, always when you are playing with little figurines. The other day at Grandma Wilken’s you were playing with something in your hands and your Aunties starting singing “In My Own Little Corner” from the Musical Cinderella. It fits you rather well right now. You are full of songs and imagination.
In my own little corner in my own little chair
I can be whatever I want to be.
On the wings of my fancy I can fly anywhere
And the world will open its arms to me.
Here is a few things that I don’t want to forget about this stage in your life:
eating Honey Nut Cheerios cereal for breakfast
watch Angelina Ballerina when you wake up
picking out your own clothes, mainly anything longsleeve with pants, even in the summer
imagining that you are the Cherry Jam character when you and Lillian play Strawberry Short Cake.
counting up to 31
putting your face in and swimming under water
trying to do monkey bars all by herself
saying funny things like “I’m rainbow sparkle fairy pony”
enjoys to color every picture with sharpies
You love to dance and put on shows. This is what Norah told me one time, as I was awaiting her entrance for her “Dance Show” in our living room, “In a few moments the beautiful one will come in.” Oh Norah, it is my prayer that you will continue to see yourself as the God’s Beautiful One!
Love you lots,
