It seemed that only yesterday papa and I were heading to the hospital to meet you for the first time. Boy, how fast the time flew by! I am looking at the new babies in our circle of friends, and it’s hard for me to remember the time when you were so tiny, so sweet and so helpless.
You are still very tiny for your five years and very sweet, but you are far from helpless. You grew into a funny, talkative, and confident kindergartener who wants so hard to always do the right thing. You like to follow the rules and enforce them if the opportunity presents itself, but you can also be very opinionated. You love to try new things, especially if they don’t involve anything that you perceive dangerous (you tend to be cautious) and meet new people. You absolutely love learning, and reading is your favorite thing to do. Everyone we meet comments how enthusiastic (that means “loud”) you are and how happy you seem to be. It’s a lot of fun to be with you, to answer you “why” and “what if” questions and follow you wherever your mind leads you. I hope you stay healthy and happy in this new chapter of your life, my Anna-girl.
