My good friend is always doing these regular posts about her kids and I decided I wanted to do one for each of my kids so I can remember all the cute things about them at this age. I figure today is a good day to remember why I love her so much since Bella was particularly naughty. :)
Bella. is. crazy. This girl has so much energy I just have no idea how to keep up with her. She just goes and goes all day long. She wants to be in charge of everything. She literally tells everyone what to do all day long.
She can be so sweet when she wants to be. When I'm having a rough day and getting overly frustrated with the girls she'll just lean over and say "Mommy." When I tensely answer "What..." She'll just say "I love you. You're the best mommy." She's knows it will calm me down.
And when she's not screaming at her sister for touching her stuff, she's giving her hugs and telling her everything's ok. Or sometimes just bring Lizzy her blankie just because.
She wants so badly to be independent. She can do everything "herself", but then gets super frustrated when she realizes that she can not, in fact, do everything herself.
She is super smart. She can remember things after being told only one time (like new book titles, nursery rhymes, etc.). She memorizes songs like nobody's business. She is getting really good at writing all her letters, and has tons of fun doing it. She absolutely can't wait to go to preschool and is a big fan of her dance class. She tries super hard and asks every day if we're going to dance.
She has such a sweet sweet spirit. She loves telling me what she learned about in nursery every Sunday whether it's the prophet or Jesus. She asks every day if we're having Family Home Evening and reminds us to read scriptures and say prayer every night.
Her favorite things to do are ride her bike outside, play with water, chalk, and go to parks. She loves the swimming pool and the splash pad and is mostly fearless, though not as fearless as her sister. She likes getting books at the library every week and playing games.
We absolutely love our little monkey to death. She drives me up the wall with her sassiness most days but I wouldn't trade her for the world.
Declaring herself the winner for finishing her ice first...
