Elly turned 5 years old on Tuesday.
My first baby has become a spunky, kind-hearted, and sweet little girl.
A letter to my Elly Angel:
Your Daddy and I are so proud of the lovely girl you have become. You are a wonderful, caring sister to your siblings. You welcomed both Brooke and Malcolm into our family with open arms. You ask to hold Mal every day, several times a day. You can’t wait to play with Brooke when you get home from school.
You are a wonderful daughter, brightening my day with your cheery disposition and kindness. I am amazed and occasionally frustrated by your conviction and stubbornness.
Here is a list of some of the things you like:
Your favorite color is purple.
Your favorite meal is french fries and spicy chicken (aka buffalo wings).
You would wear a leotard every waking hour of the day if I would let you. Periodically, we have long discussions of why leotards cannot be worn to school.
Like most other girls we know, you adore Queen Elsa.
You love mermaids and wish you could be one.
You are a natural born leader, taking charge of what games to play and dictating how to play them.
You enjoy making crafts at home and at school.
You enjoy school, but often put up a fight before school because you miss your family while you are there.
Any drawings that you make either has our family in it or a rainbow. Sometimes it has both.
It has been a fun 5 years, Elly. Here’s to many more.
