Today you are four-years-old!
We are so proud of you and so excited to celebrate your 4th birthday today! I cannot believe you are four-years-old and I am just reminded that time really does fly.
You are 40 inches tall and you weigh about 32 pounds. You wear a size 4T shirt and 4T pants and size 8 shoes. You love the color purple and went through a time this year where you would only wear purple. You only like to wear purple hair ties, you have purple sunglasses, and purple pajamas.
You love being a big sister and always want to play with Caroline. You love on her, protect her, and you are always by her side. Every morning you wake up and run into Caroline's room because you don't want to go downstairs without her. I pray that you two are the best of friends for life.
You like the shows Miles From Tomorrowland, Octonauts, and Sophia the First. You love your binoculars and you take them everywhere you go. You love to read and spend most of your rest time reading in your bed. You love to help in the kitchen and your favorite thing to make is dessert and you also LOVE to do art projects. You love to play Princesses or give exams like Doc McStuffins.
Your favorite things to eat are chocolate, pretzels, gold fish, apples, cheese, and milk. Your favorite place to go out-to-eat is Chick-Fil-A or McDonalds- you love chicken nuggets.
In June, you went to summer camp for the first time. It was a week long, half-day camp, and you loved getting dropped off like a big kid and getting picked up after lunch.
In July, you spent ten days with Nana and Pap Pap while Mommy and Daddy went on vacation out west.
In August, you got your first bike. You were over-the-moon and you have been riding your bike as often as possible since you got it. You love peddling up and down the street and ringing the bell.
In September you started taking a gymnastics class. You go every week and have been loving it all year! We are very happy to have you climbing on equipment in gymnastics class and doing less climbing at home.
In December, you decided to pierce your ears. You had been talking about it for months and months and decided to get them pierced one day at the mall. You love having your ears pierced! At the end of December, you went to your very first Bowl Game! You went to the military bowl in Annapolis to see The University of Pittsburgh play the Naval Academy.
