My oldest little baby turned 5 last month! She had a cowgirl themed party at Wheeler farm, where they roped the horse, fed ducks and had a wagon ride. (her boyfriend from last years preschool, jack, came-she was thrilled! )
That evening just happened to be my assigned night for the opera (season tix my amazing hubs got me for my bday.) I didn't want to leave Amie on her special night so we made it a big girl's fancy night. She choose olive garden for dinner, then she went in the fancy dress, heels and purse grandma Chris took her to get. She was veeeeery good, especially considering it was a modified show with very little to look at.
My angel girl is super smart, able to blend read, still enjoying her dancing/singing group and is very very girly. She is a super help to me with all the kids being little. She loves playing with her siblings, entertaining them, and really likes it when I tell her she's in charge. She's still into princesses and also likes monster high and really wants a pet. I am so blessed to have this angel!
-Rolling over in his sleep, hugging his pillow, sighing and shaking his head "Oh, Arnesky..." (Neither of us know any Arnesky's.)
-Sits straight up in the middle of the night. I ask "what are you doing?" I was met with my favorite response ever: "I'm getting ready to go to tiny church." That's right folks, tiny church!!!!!! HAHAHAHA!
-Sleepy again "sorry, I think my car's poisoning me."
- To a member of my ward choir during practice (I'm the director) "Go back a little farther, like 'up your.' " Not kidding. I couldn't stop laughing for a very very long time. Kinda impedes your practice.
-Asks where mommy is, dad says 'at work.' "We have to go save her!" (Yes, please!)
-I walk in to get her out of the crib in the morning, her hand is in her mouth. "mommy, I'm eating my hand." "What?" "I'm eating my hand!" "Why are you doing that?" "It's so good!"
-Daddy's calling her to come get dressed, she puts her face down in the floor "but I can't find you, daddy!"
-"UUUUUUUUNNNNGG!" That girl grunts and groans like a full grown man! I think all her noises are very funny.
-We SWEAR she imitates what we say. So far we've heard versions of Amie,
