To this sunshiney FIVE year old!
My goodness I love this child. Sometimes I just stare at her face and can’t believe how perfect she is. She’s just a happy kid – always smiling and showing off those big dimples! She loves to watch all kinds of videos on YouTube Kids, make slime, and play with her LOL dolls, My Little Ponies, and Barbies. She still loves to dress up and do anything girly like get her nails done. She wants her hair in a ponytail every single day and, thankfully, still lets me put a big bow in that ponytail! While she has strong opinions about her wardrobe, we can still come to an agreement…most days! She’d wear purple every day if she could because purple “makes her stay alive!”.
I wrote this for her birthday last year and it is still 100% accurate: “She knows the power of her snuggles and hugs and uses them to her advantage with Maxwell! He would hug her all day if he could and she never lets him! ha! Maxwell loves her the most. She and Spencer are buddies and, if it’s just the two of them, they shine! The play well together and are the best of buds. She loves Dad and lets her light shine on him occasionally but Samantha is definitely a Momma’s girl and wants me to do everything for her. It’s wonderful and exhausting.” Yep, still 100% true!
This made me laugh…
Samantha loves dance and is often the leader in the class. She’s doing great at gymnastics and her tumble class and is clearly athletic and coordinated. This has been a fantastic year at school – she has lots of friends and loves going every day! I am cherishing our Fridays together – gymnastics, lunch at Chick-Fil-A and a little girl fun. I sure am going to miss her when she starts Kindergarten in the fall.
My little girl with the big personality! She’s friendly and happy and just a true joy. She’s also strong-willed and full of opinions. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
