elle is 6

When I was pregnant with Elle I signed up for the babycenter website emails to keep up with how she was developing before birth and have continued to receive the emails. In her 6 year email they included this description from A.A. Milne's Now We Are Six. It says that six year olds are fanciful, adventuresome, silly, comforted by familiar things, and boldly curious about the new. To me it describes Elle perfectly.

Elle has had a big year--new house, new sister, new school, but she's handled it all like a champ. As much as they are all new for her, she's also been leading us through lots of learning experiences too as she has the unique position as our first. She amazes me everyday! It's hard to believe that she's 6, and it feels like time is flying by. She has always been a good reader, but now she's really reading, and loves to write. She says her favorite thing to do at school is science. She's becoming a great signer too, as her teacher has been teaching her class sign language. Elle's even got her own library card now! She's so big!

She still loves to play with Todd, and is good at entertaining Reese. She is thoughtful about things they like, is sweet when they're upset (most of the time). Elle has made several new friends at school, but still loves her time with her cousins and friends from church. She says the funniest things all the time. She got a check for her birthday and was happy because she "finally got a paycheck!" Elle was bragging one day because she picked up and held a worm for the first time. She loves to wait until bedtime to start talking your ear off. I hope she always wants to share with us so much.

We love our sweet pooh bear and pray over her daily!
