Almost Seven

Every time I remember I need to blog, something gets in the way.  And, I don't want to give up this record of her early childhood.  So, I'm going to try and blog once a week or more to get back in the swing of things.  Honestly, she's changing & growing so's hard to keep up.

She's just a few weeks away from being 7 years old!  She's 50" tall & 57 lbs, which puts her in the 80th percentile for both.  (Meaning she's taller than most kids her age)  She loves school, piano, gymnastics, her friends and many other varied things.  We spent a huge amount of time this winter being sick & are very (very) happy Spring has sprung.

Here's a sample of her cursive writing.  (Which continues to interest her)

Devin was SO excited to see her cousins and especially to meet the newest member of the family.

She's generally NOT one for babies, but this one is very hard to resist!

This age is wonderful.  She's so independent, but still needs "mama" sometimes.  She knows what she likes, but is willing to try new things.  We are witness to a full-on obsession with piano and gymnastics.  Her tenacity is paying off, as she will practice piano for several hours a day on weekends.  Same thing with gymnastics.  She does handstands and backbends all day.  It's exhausting to watch.

Mostly, we just sit back and watch her grow and be happy.  And, savor every moment of this age.  It hit me this morning that in just five years, we'll have a 12 year old on our hands.
