Turning 7

Filed under: Gratitude,Kids — by Alison @ 4:44 pm

E is 7. That is firmly out of babyhood, she might even be considered a tween. Every so often, I catch glimpses of the teen and adult she may become.

She’s handled this year of change very well. There have been a few ups and downs but it seems to be evening out. She’s finding her rhythm with the new school, new friends, new teachers and a new second (third) language. Her writing and reading skills have taken off.

I love the little notes she writes to me at night.

I love that her iPod playlist includes dance hits and the Fisher Price Ocean Wonders lullaby that she’s listened to since she was a baby.

I love that she is so gentle and caring with her brother.

I love that she likes playing goalie in soccer because it means less running.

I love that her favourite things to play with are her American girl dolls, Lego, Star Wars and Barbie’s.

I love that she wants to roller skate.

I love her so much it feels that my heart will burst.

Happy Birthday E!
