I’m here to tell you that Miss Rae grew an inch in two months.
This isn’t an exaggeration. You know how sometimes I say that I had seven coffees in one day, but I really only had six? Yeah, she really truly grew a full inch in two months.
About two months ago on J Man’s birthday we measured both kids and recorded their heights on a chunk of wall in the laundry room.
A few days ago, when this little button turned four (yes, four) she requested to be measured. We complied, certain that there would be a negligible difference.
A whole inch.
Also, she reads and when I say reads, I mean memorizes books but it’s giving her such confidence when we praise her amazing “reading” skills.
Did I mention that she’s spunky? J Man’s favorite adjective for his sister is sassy, which describes her to a T.
So how do you celebrate a spunky, sassy, tall four year old with an amazing memory?
Food, of course.
Family, naturally. (And this isn’t the best photo of the 15 in attendance, but it is the funniest of Matty B. Is he gagging/choking/singing? No one knows.)
And if you’re four, and if it’s close to Easter, and if Grandma is on hand to follow your every wish and command, you absolutely dye Easter eggs.
And not surprisingly, those eggs turned out just as sassy and spunky as the birthday girl herself.
Happy birthday, Miss Rae!
