Letter to Ali (End of 2015)

Ali,
You are such a kindhearted girl with a deep desire to make people around you happy. You love feeling "grown up" and will often times choose to sit and be with me over playing with other kids. For Christmas you asked for "3 lipsticks and 3 chap-sticks" and for your birthday you want new clothes. You love to talk on the phone, especially to your grandmas. When you talk on the phone you usually go into your bedroom and lay on your bed with your feet up like a teenager which always makes me laugh.

You love to help dad and I make pancakes every Saturday morning. You have deemed it your job each week to cut up a banana and always ask to flip the pancakes. You are such a good helper and really love to be involved in anything that allows you to feel grown up. I often times see your desire to want to be so big and just want you to enjoy being a 4 year old and then remember feeling the same way as a kid, I wanted to be just like my mom and was always bossing my siblings around.

You started Pre-K this past year and are really excited to go to kindergarten this upcoming year. You know all of your letters and sounds and have just started learning sight words. You love to point out the words you know when we read books and take a lot of pride in doing your "homework" with me and sometimes make up extra assignments.

You are going to be an amazing mother someday and really enjoy playing pretend with your baby dolls and taking care of your little sister. Whenever you see a baby you get really excited and say "Aww, it's so cute!" You absolutely LOVE to talk, you have such a cute voice and kind of talk with an almost British accent. You like to talk so much that sometimes it gets you into trouble because you forget to listen. I often times laugh at your cute phrases because rather then ask a simple question you ask it 4 or 5 different ways just so that you can keep talking.

You started dance a few months ago and absolutely love your teacher Mrs. Jackie! You were really excited to take dance lessons all on your own but then when Hannah saw you dancing she wanted to dance too and you got really excited and were happy to let her do lessons with you. I love watching you dance with your sister every week. You have so much fun with ballet and tap.

I love you so much and am grateful that you are such a loving, kind and forgiving girl.

Love,
Mom
