Peanut turned 4 today! It’s just can’t believe my baby is already 4. She is such a joy! She loves animals of all kinds, but especially horses and dogs. She loves to match with others in any possible way (she gets excited if we are both wearing skirts, for instance, and one day put a black clip in her hair and said, “Scoop! We match!” to the dog.) She loves to laugh, loves her sister, always asks, “Where are we going?” and wants to know the full itinerary for the day, every day, as well as, “What’s for dinner?” She goes to sleep with the light on – holding a book – every night, and still is guaranteed to wake up in the middle of the night at least once or twice a week. She favors her left hand, and can *almost* write her first name. She is smart and funny, and we love her so much.
Every year I ask my girls the same set of questions on their birthdays. It’s so fun to see the different answers from year to year! See Peanut’s answers from today below, and from last year here.
