My little miss is four years old, so I think it's about time for a proper four year update! I still haven't taken her outside for her "four year pictures" but at least we went to the studio and did these ones! Of course she chose to wear her favorite dress ever for the first set of shots, she loves this dress and would wear it all the time! In fact, she wore it so much that it got all torn up in the front and we had to go and get it fixed so she could keep wearing it!
Riley is the sweetest, smartest, silliest little girl there is. Some of her favorite things right now are: Anything "Frozen" themed, playing with legos, singing and dancing, playing dress up, reading, and playing board games. She will sit and play with legos and build and build for hours, orrrr until her brother tries to destroy her hard work.
She can legitimately READ. And it amazes me!!! She can open up a book she's never seen before, and just read it! Obviously we are talking about kid books, and she still needs help with some words, but the girl just LOVES to read. She is constantly asking me what different words say while we are out and about, or what signs say while we are driving. She is extremely into all the "early reader" books right now and insists on reading to me every night before bed. I'm just blown away at how interested she is all on her own, and how quickly she has picked everything up!
She loves Life cereal and sun butter sandwiches more than anything. Macaroni and cheese is probably right up there too. She adores her brother, especially playing chase and jumping on the bed with him. In a few weeks she will start her second year of preschool, and she is very very excited! She absolutely loves preschool and loves being around friends her age.
Her daddy has introduced her to a game called Township on the ipad, and she is obsessed. She loves building her town and is learning all kinds of fun things by playing that game! Her current favorite TV show is Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and her favorite movie is still Frozen. In fact she just finished Frozen dance camp last week and she had so much fun!!
She is such a little sweetheart, with a feisty side of course. :) She loves playing outside and riding bikes, and LOVES going in the hot tub with me in the evenings! She has been learning how to swim and has done so well at her lessons!!! She is very very excited for her new baby brother to arrive, which could happen any time now! Hard to believe it was over four years ago that I was waiting anxiously for her arrival!!
