-is enjoying her first year of school. She looks forward to going and always greets me at the end of the day with a huge hug and a "I had the best day!". She has made lots of friends, despite her quieter nature.
-is a good eater. Her favourites are lasagna, chicken on the bone, cucumbers, pineapple, cupcakes and pancakes.
-knows the upper case and lower case alphabet letters. She knows the sounds they make and words that start with that letter. She can also sound out 3-letter words so we've started some light reading practice. Thanks to having an older sister in French Immersion, she knows how to count, her colours and how to sing Happy Birthday in French.
-is sensitive. If you have to correct her behaviour, her feelings get hurt and she goes straight to her room to throw herself facedown into her pillow or to the couch to cover her face.
-can be quiet and shy. She is still happiest if I'm close.
Favourite things lately:
-helping make breakfast and baking
-wearing leggings with skirts
Things I never want to forget:
-how she created the word "evenways" and uses it from time to time. She will get out of the habit of using it so we will try to use it a few times so she starts again. It's just too funny!
-how unbelievably ticklish she is. I can tickle the air near her and she explodes into giggles.
-how she randomly tells us she loves us. She is so good at giving spontaneous hugs, cuddles and I love you's.
