Cora is five today. That seems impossible somehow. I can't remember so much of the time that she was little-little. The days are going by so quickly. She has always been an independent little thing, and even more so now..and so passionate. She loves everything she sees (as far as toys are concerned.) She can quote her favorite characters with scary accuracy and cut a rug on the fly like nobody's business. She knows her letters and sounds and will be reading before we know it. She loves to pretend to talk on the phone (which could be anything from a piece of paper to a calculator) and she even does voice texting, complete with the spoken punctuation. I have to be so careful what comes out of my mouth and tone I use, because even the not-so-proud moments could be instantly replayed out of her mouth, i.e. "hel-looo people, let's go!" She loves her friends and wants to be with them every.single.day. I am envious of her energy--she might bust out in a full blown run around the house at any second or bounce around like Tigger for long stretches of time. She has a ginormous sweet tooth. She lives to play and swim and color and paint and all the wonderful things that come with being 5. She has a hard time understanding why she won't change classes today since she's not four anymore. She's becoming a good little gymnast but would also like to do ballet, tap, soccer, and karate. She is a spunky little chick, and we are so proud if her.
We love you, sweet girl! Can't wait to see what's in store for you at 5!
