Letters to Lexi 4/8/15
My dear sweet Lexi...you are almost 6 years old. It's still hard for me to wrap my head around that, as it seems like just yesterday you were still in my belly.
Your personality comes out more and more every day. You have your own sense of style. You know what you want and when you want it. But, you have been like that from day 1. You have just a few short weeks until you will finish Kindergarten. You have changed so much over this school year. At the beginning you were so scared that the "paperwork" was going to be way too hard, and that there would be too much math and too many tests. And you have flown right through it with no problems! Your report cards hang on our refrigerator, as a reminder to us, and you, of how smart you are. I literally can't buy books fast enough for you. I thought at Christmas when I bought you some Chapter books we would have to read them together. I was wrong! You had read 1 of them by the end of the day, and read the others by the end of Christmas break. Sometimes I just can't believe how smart you are.
TBall has started up again. And the coach and everyone just goes on an on about how natural you are at it. You have grown so much taller since last year, so you are throwing harder and running faster. I want you to be good at it....but mostly I want you to have fun. If there comes a day that you don't want to play anymore, then I will let you make that decision. I want you to do things that you enjoy...not just things that Mommy enjoyed.
You still love going to sleep at Nanny's house, and helping her bake. We're waiting for the weather to get warm so you can spend more time out there.
You love animals, but mainly cats!
You sleep just like your daddy with the fan on and all the covers over your head. Some mornings I can't even find you in there when I come to wake you up!
Lexi, you will never know how proud of you I am. Every day you show me something amazing and new that I had no idea you could do. I know I'm not the best at it, but I'm working on showing you and telling you how proud I am and how happy you make me.
You are my little tender-hearted girl. It breaks your heart when you get in trouble. You will just cry and cry until it all blows over.
I love you my sweet girl.
Forever and always,
