Rylie Paige-4 1/2

I'm super late getting this together but it's been on my mind for weeks. On Thur April, 19 Rylie turned 4 1/2 and she's so psyched! She cannot wait to turn 5 already lol Mostly because she knows about the special thing we're doing for her birthday.

Anyways, here is what our girl is up to at this time....
  • Coloring! Omg she draws and colors all day long. And she's GOOD at it! She loves making pictures for her friends.
  • She's quite the negotiator. Might have a career in law someday like her Grandaddy and Mr. Bob at Mimi's office!
  • Still loves dressing up and has entered the "dress" phase.
  • Not quite the sleeper she's always been. I wish she'd sleep until 8-830 like she used to!
  • She wakes up, gets herself dressed with what she's picked out herself (we just moved clothes to bottom rack), then gets her banana, yogurt, and cup of milk out of fridge for breakfast and I make her a whole grain blueberry waffle to go with it. She eats breakfast while watching Mickey Mouse while I feed Remy (or somedays in the car on the way to school lol)
  • She absolutely loves her school! She does chapel time at home for us.
  • Everyday she fights us on naps but I still think she needs them. It's hard to be on schedule with them though. MWF she goes down about 130 or 2. Wed we have to leave for dance at 330 so it's cut short. Then T/Th she gets out of school at 230 so she lays down about 245. She's a much better person when she naps!
  • She can write every letter.

  • She's starting math-just addition. And it's mostly from Mickey Mouse! She'll randomly state "2+2+1=5!" among other things.
  • She still loves her dance class a lot! I cant wait for her next recital in May!
  • She asks a lot of questions that she knows the answer too and it drives David and I crazy! Like she'll ask us if a word is pronounced wrong on purpose, even though she's just said the word the correct way 2 seconds ago.
  • She's a great help with Remy! She can always make her smile/laugh when she's cranky. And she loves bringing her toys and sometimes likes to help feed her a bottle. There was a short time a month or so ago she wanted to help change diaper and it was so cute! She also has been waking Remy up during naps "because she wants to play with her." Sweet but annoying lol
  • Her favorite shows are Mickey, Jake and Neverland Pirates, Strawberry Shortcake and she hasnt watched movies lately but it's still Rapunzel as her fav!

  • She always tells us she wants to have family time with all 4 of us.
  • She sounds sassy sometimes with the way she says things,almost like a smart-alec, but she's just so goofy and dramatic. She doesnt mean it to be rude. Her teachers have learned that ;-)
  • I had my 2nd parent-teacher conference and they just love Rylie! They're worried she's not challenged enough but it's because this is her 2nd year to do preschool 3 since her old school wasnt set on birthdays by Sep 1. I think she'll be challenged just fine next year. Her teachers also commented how great Rylie is at playing with everybody. I've seen first hand a few kids only wanting to play with one other certain kid and watching Rylie trying to be included with no luck. I'm so glad Rylie's open to everybody and not so "clique-y."
  • She's still a very picky eater. Will she ever expand her tastes?!
  • She loves riding her big bike, drawing chalk, playing on playground and just running outside.
  • She's the BEST big sister and little girl we could've ever asked for! Just as sweet as can be and we love her more than anything!
