There's just something about this little girl. Maybe it's the overabundance of feminine enthusiasm she exhibits to counteract being caught between two brothers. Maybe it's the desire to alternately astound and exhaust her mother. But this little girl...ah. She is amazing. She is fearless. She is sweet. And she is growing up too fast.
Here is her self-portrait entitled "Anna as Singing Rapunzel." You don't have to be an art historian to know that it's simply brilliant.
She is THRIVING in preschool. She loves every moment. And the latest new development is this way to say good-bye. Darling.
And just as an example of what my mom calls her "Minnie Mouse voice", here is a clip we took at the Sea Life Center in Seward on our trip to Alaska this summer. I love the way she calls me "mommy".
We love you, sister!
