We may have made the physical person that the little one is, but the personality is all down to her!
She is one of a kind.
She is kind and loving. She looks after the little kids and makes sure she defends her friends who are feeling hurt. If one of us is hurt she will do what she can to care for us.
She is funny and witty. Not a day passes without her making us laugh. Proper belly laughs too. She loves to entertain.
She is cunning and cheeky. Every day is a battle of wills and we love it. There is no ‘do it because we say so’ in this house. If we don’t have a good enough reason for something then she will expose any flaws and we will lose! That makes us smile.
She is bright and determined. She kept practising whistling until she got it. She didn’t give up. She delighted when a proper whistle came out. She loves trying and trying until she gets it.
At 6 years old she can read most books. She read all her birthday cards with minimal help.
At 6 years old she can ride a bike. Her birthday present is a new, bigger bike.
At 6 years old she has learnt to dance at school. She has even been allowed to dance with the bigger girls. In the cinema, when the music comes on she stands up and dances.
At 6 years old she makes us so proud because she is such a beautiful person. Not just on the outside, but more importantly, on the inside.
