Four and a half years old.
It is the most cliche thing in the known universe to say, but…look at how big she’s getting! She’s asking us such complicated questions and is overall acting like a total kid now. She obviously still has her frustrating moments but goodness…she’s doing a good job of transitioning from a toddler to someone who’s going to kindergarten next year.
She knows exACTLY how to push Celine’s buttons and does it from time to time, but can also be the sweetest big sister. She’ll share food and toys when she thinks nobody is looking (or when she thinks she’ll get a reward), and she tries really hard to be a good influence on Celine. It’s very sweet.
She is WAY into posing for pictures now which of course I’m 100% ok with. She’ll do something and say “mom…take a picture!” and pose. Our photographer for our holiday photos was very pleased with Louise’s ability to take direction. She commented that Louise has always been an easy child to photograph and I have to agree! (Especially when you compare her to Celine…)
She had such a fun time trick-or-treating, but neither girl is particularly concerned with where their candy went or why they can’t have any (for the record, we keep it in a cabinet – and had to throw away last year’s Halloween candy to make room!). It’s more about the experience for them than the candy.
I am really looking forward to this holiday season coming up in a few short weeks!
