We’ve partied hard this weekend, and now Kaylia has been celebrated into her next year of life.:)
As is the custom around here, it’s time to record her birthday favorites:
Breakfast: Pancakes and Waffles
Lunch: carrots, rice cake sandwiches
Supper: “Breakfast Supper” (which is what we call it when we have pancakes or other breakfast food for supper – the biggest treat ever at our house.)
Clothes: Hello Kitty dress
Favorite Books: anything to do with Disney princesses
Favorite Toys: Lego Friends, Polly Pockets, anything Disney princess
Favorite Things to do: whatever Anika is doing, playing in the sandbox, wrapping herself up in a blanket on the floor and quietly playing there for so long that we forget where she is:), listening to stories on cds.
She is one funny girl. She doesn’t often want to be the center of attention, but she’ll quietly come up with the most hilarious things to say. When she’s in trouble, she’ll first try to joke her way out of it, then she’ll get very affectionate and try to snuggle her way out of it, and if neither of those strategies work, she will finally expresses her extreme unhappiness over the situation!
She’s quick to apologize (when it’s her idea!), extremely generous with her sister, wants a tidy room, and delights in helping out however she can.
She wants to do things herself, her way, and I’ve become much better at making everything multiple choice, rather than commanding her to do anything.
Ben says she’s like he was as a little boy, which makes me curious what she will be capable of as she grows up! That feisty, fun energy could accomplish great things!
