Today J turns 5. She keeps asking if God is going to stretch her in the night so she will be bigger when she wakes up. As many times as I explain that this isn’t quite how a birthday works, she is still hopeful. Her favorite color is blue. I have a suspicion this is because she looks up to her big brother so much. She loves to sing, wear dresses, and play mom, dad and baby. She’s not a big fan of anything that makes her sweat. Her favorite princess is Rapunzel or as she says, “Reepunzel”. When asked what her favorite memory is, she said, “going to Cinderella Ballet with Ava”. When asked what makes her saddest, she said, “when N is mean to me”. Her dream birthday gift is a makeup set with lots of tiny compartments including every imaginable color of eye shadow. I can’t wait to see her 5 year old face when she opens her gift from us. She is so funny when she cuts loose and is an amazing helper many times seeing a need and filling it, before we ask. What a delight she is! Happy 5th birthday JRE!
