this girl is intense.
and bursting with personality.
her imagination is out of this world.
i don't know how many times a day she goes to the royal ball or the dinosaur museum or picks berries in the forest or follows a treasure map to "halle's hideout" or sets up her own office for "doctor halle" or dresses up in wes's ties and my shoes with her notebook heading off to the grocery store to be the mama. (i don't wear wes's ties so i don't know where she gets that one from.)
she is an all or nothing girl.
example of all and then nothing: one day she did all of her business on the potty. hasn't done it like that since and is a major potty tease.
another example of all or nothing: i was teaching her how to use scissors, the way to hold them, and how to cut paper. she was becoming very frustrated because she couldn't get her fingers right. she got up walked away from me and turned around and said "i can't learn." and that was that.
she knows what she wants to do and isn't afraid to ask, but does not throw tantrums if she can't have what she wants.
she can be reasoned with and is mostly easy going.
she hates pop and most kinds of juice. she would much rather drink water.
she thinks she is getting a "ladder bed" (a bunk bed) we obviously spent way too much time at furniture stores looking for beds. she will be sorely disappointed when her new sleigh bed comes, but of course she will deal and love it.
she seriously refuses to learn her letters. every letter we work on is "t." I will actually show her a letter and tell her the name and then quickly ask her what letter that is and she will still say "t."
she loves her friends at joy school and thinks up funny things to say to them. she does an impression of vector on "despicable me" that is hilarious. she always asks if she can do it for her friends or say other silly things to them, but of course they don't understand that she is being funny and have no idea what she is talking about.
she asked for some pretzels for a snack the other day and quickly corrected herself. she said "pretzel" correctly the first time, but hurried and said "pee-oh-poles" which is what she has called pretzels for the last year.
the first thing she says after she does something naughty is, "i like you mommy."
she doesn't say "hey everybody!" she actually says, "hey every guys!"
she is mostly very obedient.
we're very lucky that way.
where did this sweetheart come from?
i have no doubt she is going to be a helpful and loving big sister.
the love we have for this kikster is intense.
