-is doing really well at Kindergarten. She has good friends (interestingly enough, she naturally gravitates to hanging out with boys) and had a great first report card (where it was reported that she listens well, does her work eagerly and helps out).
-is going through a picky eater phase. She is so stubborn that if she doesn't like the look of something, she will just not eat. She loathes chicken pot pie, egg yolks and homemade soup. Her favourites are cheese pizza, hot dogs, cucumbers, snap peas and watermelon.
-is reading early readers and starting to sound out words when writing. She knows a bit of french (colours, singing a couple of songs and counting to 15). She will be doing French Immersion Kindergarten next fall.
-is super cuddly. She's the snuggliest member of the family, for sure.
Favourite things lately:
-joggers. For those not in the know, those are jogging pants/sweats/track pants/yoga pants. A day where she wears joggers is a great day in her books.
-playing piano. She started piano lessons in September and has been doing extremely well. She loves it and plays several times a day.
-going to school.
-colouring and drawing.
-playing with the cats.
Things I never want to forget:
-her "sassy" face. I'm sure I won't ever forget that since it'll only intensify as we get closer to the teen years. So, let me remember how the sassy face was at one time really cute and funny.
-her matter of fact tone of voice when she's explaining something. It's a cross between an "I can't believe it" tone and a "know-it-all" voice.
-how good she is at sharing with Sammy. Even when it's her birthday and brand new gifts, she's so happy to share and be generous.
