(After I started this a few weeks ago, I probably should post it)
We have a four year old in the house!
Hannah has been looking forward to her 4th birthday for a long time. "How many more days until February?" was a regular question in January. She kept saying her birthday was that night (Wednesday), so I told her that it was her birthday ALL DAY. All day?! She thought that was pretty neat.
She frustrates us, surprises us, warms our hearts, annoys us, makes us smile; a typical 4 year old. :)
And she loves to make her sister squeal. They fight like cats and dogs. Then the next minute they're the best of buds. "Leave your sister alone" is the phrase I say the most during the day. And "Keep your hands to yourself." Should just put that on record so I can save my voice. :)
She had her 4 year checkup on the 10th. Weighed in at 40 lbs and was 42.5" tall. Still on the higher end of the scale. The doc kept thinking she was 5. At first she was a bit shy, but towards the end of the visit she warmed up enough to talk a bit with the doctor. Our regular doc is in New Zealand for a few months, so we have a different one. She passed with flying colors, right on schedule for everything.
She likes to color, cut/glue, use stickers, play-doh, make cookies/cupcakes/use sprinkles, change clothes several times a day, run around in her undies, read books, and I'm sure other stuff will come to mind once I post this.
Oh Hannah. Terrific threes and trying threes were the phrases of the past year. What's the next year gonna bring?
