I just try to soak up the littleness in her while I can.  She has lost two of her teeth now, and she act so grown up at times.  She is a great at negotiating and she can often get what she wants by talking her sibling into it.  She is a mess maker but she loves it when her room is in order.  She is a dreamer and realistic all at once.  She is a great friend to those who loves her, but she does not stand back to those who don’t.  She stands firm on her own two legs and rarely tell on her pears.  I like that about her.  I like that she fight her fights and deal with problems head on. She tells the truth.  She learned early on that owning your mistakes cause less problems than to cover them up. She proudly does her self assigned chores every morning.  She decided that unpacking the dishwasher was her job, and she loves doing it.  She loves school and she takes the bus most mornings.  She is five and way to grown up for my liking.

The last six months were a mix between amazing and exhausting.  She is a chilled baby and slept for the first four months of her life, but that brings a whole lot of new problems and I can say for sure that when the baby sleeps, it does not mean that the mom also sleeps.  It started at birth when she had to feed every two hours because she was hypoglycemic, and then every 3 hours followed by supplement feeds as she did not put on much weight.  Now trying to wake up a sleepy baby every 2 hours to feed takes about an hour and a half.  Yes I’ve spent my nights trying to wake her up to feed.  She is doing so well now though.  She can almost sit, but not quite.  She is rolling over now, even though it took a little while for her to learn…..but then she did sleep the first four months of her life….  She is cutting her third tooth at the moment, and she starting to giggle.  It surprises us every time we hear a giggle, and it stops us in our tracks with joy and excitement and everyone tries to do a giggle every few minutes.  She is so joyful and as Hannah said after Hailey blew a raspberry with a mouth full of food:  “I think she is going to be a fun girl”

She has always been my muse when I take photos.  She does interesting things.  She does not mind to get messy or wet or anything that over the top.  We were camping again this weekend for the first time since I became pregnant with Hailey.  My kids get up before sunrise and we always take them to the beach at that time so that they do not wake up the other campers.  It is always my most favourite time of the day.  When everything is still and the sun rises.  She just could not resist to go into the water with her pj’s.  The other two kids are more careful and just played on the beach.  How I love her.  I love all her messiness and her weird clothing combinations.  I like how she still likes princess outfits.  I love how she is shy to get changed into her dance clothes in front of others, but she will happily run around naked on the beach.  She is growing up so fast and I will miss all these little things that drives me crazy at times.  I can’t imagine that anyone gets blessed with more than one messy adventurer, so please stay like this for a little longer so that you can show your sister how to have fun.  xx  This is a blog circle.  Also see what Cindy has been up to.
