being 4 is a tough job...but lucy lu does it pretty well!
there is really so much to love about Lucy...
which was evident at her little party...
~ The way she held her arms out to embrace "her Chuck-E"...she is a loving little girl, with a big heart and her loyalty at such a young age is amazing.
~ Her reaction to all her gifts...it was like everyone brought her little pieces of gold...she luved them all! She is a grateful little girl
~ The way she ran from game to game...playing golden coin after golden coin...she is a very independent little girl. Strong willed & determined. Which at times, leaves me exhausted and frustrated, but at other times...makes me smile, laugh, and sit back in awe as her little body & mind seem to walk, talk, and interpret beyond her years.
~ Holding my hand. She is loving. She is tender...sneaking into my bed in the early morning hours to put her hands up around my face..."are you awake mommy...cause I luv you."
~ She is social...she luvs her cousins & her friends. She is the first to say "what is your name?" the first to say "you look real pretty" the first to say "want to be my friend" and she is usually pretty quick to say "im sorry"
~ at her birthday breakfast...she is patient. the day before we were at target shopping and she was patiently making her way through target with her slurpee & popcorn as i was picking up some needed things. along the way, she picked up this giraffe, elephant, and snake to entertain herself. as we arrived at the checkout, i quickly informed her to "put those back now!" without hesitation, she took one last long look, placed them on the end of the checkout isle, patted all their little heads and didn't say another thing. it made me stop and pause and think about my little lu. as the "second" child, she often has to be patient in ways that i forget about it. running savannah to school and events, then changing diapers and feeding jillian. and all along the way, she is there with me...being very patient. of course she is 4, and she has melt downs & outburst...but if i pause to think about it, i can think of the many patient times she has had with me, that greatly out weigh the others. *as she opened these gifts at her birthday breakfast, she saw the first glimpse...then she herself paused...and said "No you didnt!" LOL!
~ Adventurous! Happy Birthday Lucy Lu, we luv you!!!
