Speaking of school, you're still a smartypants. You're learning to read and are doing some math. Your writing, coloring, and drawing have gotten much better. You love crafty things (yea!) and reading stories before bed. We've started reading chapter books, and they keep your attention. I have to admit that I like that more than reading the same books a million times. You remain super chatty and ask a ton of questions all the time. You also enjoy movies, going to the park, playing with the neighbors. I think you're ready for a new dog but still talk about Maggie. You do have that fantastic memory.
You have been taking karate for quite some time now. It has held your attention better than ballet. You have the yellow (gold? I have no idea) belt with one stripe. You also are better at tumbling and with balance. You like riding your bike at your grandparents'--still with training wheels but you have much better endurance.
You and your brother still sleep in the same room even though you now have your own. What's funny is that where y'all sleep changes. You will pick your room (in twin beds), his room (in his tent or in his bed), or will sleep on these pallets that you got for Christmas. Sometimes we put you to bed in one place and a few minutes later y'all change things up. Whatever. You sleep well so that's all that matters. You have mostly given up napping at home although you sometimes do at school or the grandparents'. We had a good run so no complaints there. You do take awhile to get dressed, though (both in the morning and at night). You are slow, slow, slow. But you kind of are in general. This should not surprise me as your labor lasted FOREVER.
