Our girlie is four today. Where has the time gone? I feel like I blinked and three years flew by. At the same time, I see home video of her at 12 months and can hardly remember her at that age.
She's a rough and tumble little chick who can hold her own with the boys, but give her a pair of dress up shoes and our hardwood floor and she's in heaven. People tell us we're lucky her personality is so strong, so no one can take advantage of her. But to have her listen to us now and then would be a good thing, at least until she knows what she's doing! She can be as stubborn as ... well, both of her parents, I guess! She is the spitting image of me when I was her age.
She can sweet talk her Noni and Papa something fierce, and she's got a convincing smile to go along with any plan she hatches. Her memory amazes me, and the girl has a better internal GPS than her great Aunt Madeline. "Mama, you just passed our street, where are you going?" "Mama, Jamba Juice is that way."
Her new favorite activity is playing with Daddy's iPhone. He will barely be in the door and she's asking "Hi Daddy, how is your iPhone?" She's a pro on the computer, navigating the (parental controlled) Internet all on her own. She's technologically savvy, this one!
Happy 4th Birthday, Sis! We love you like crazy!
