Oh Annabelle Claire, at four years old you’ve proven to make such an impact on everyone you meet. You’re sweet smile, sparkling eyes, and magical personality makes it so easy to love you. We can’t believe how much you’ve changed in the last year, especially your Rapunzel length hair (that we’ve been waiting forever to see long).
Your Daddy has determined you’re definitely the boss of our family. You have a mixture of characteristics from both of us, which makes you to be quite powerful, determined, and often opinionated and argumentative. We love how you’re a strong little lady and know some day you’re going to be in charge of a lot of people. You practice this daily on those around you, especially Ailey, Noni, and your Grampy.
Drawing with markers and crayons, dressing up in your costumes, playing with your babies and Princess Barbies, dancing in the kitchen, making up your own songs, anything magical or whimsical. You love feeding the birds, the color pink, staring at your reflection in the shower door while you go potty (hah), playing house with Nana and your dolls, taking showers, being silly with your friends, and making imaginary lists. You adore your new cousin Sloane, sometimes think your little sister Ailey is cool, wrestling with your Daddy, and helping Mommy clean.
Food – hard boiled eggs, sausages, pastina, chocolate, cereal, vanilla ice cream, popsicles. Song – “Run, Run Rudolph.” Movies – “Home Alone.” TV Shows -“Sofia the First/Care Bears/Daniel Tiger/Peppa Pig.”
Being scared, bugs, spiders, having people in the bathroom with you, water in your eyes, knots in your hair, the moments before you fall asleep (soooo crabby), breaking routines, sprinkles on ice cream, trying new foods, when your feet are sweaty, the smell of heat, being cold (but you also hate being hot too!).
We hope that FOUR is everything you could imagine – fun, fabulous, and filled withe excitement. We love that YOU love having your birthday around Christmas because you appreciate the magic of the season. We love seeing life through your eyes, the true appreciation you have for nature and all that is wondrous. You make us (and everyone around you) feel whole. HAPPY FOUR YEARS our sweet Booch.
