About a Girl

Here's an update on our sweet little H:

One of her favorite games to play is football. She's quite good at throwing, catching, and kicking!

She loves to play outdoors, especially if she can dig in something.

She's opinionated about what she wears. She really enjoys picking out her outfits for the day and what jammies she's going to wear to bed. Most of the time she's pretty good at it, but some days she comes up with some interesting combinations!

She enjoys dressing up in girly things, especially on Sundays for church.

She loves to color, paint, and play with playdoh.

She loves to build with blocks, play with trains, cars, and Bob the Builder toys.

She enjoys telling jokes, especially knock-knock jokes. Our favorite is the one about juggling a banana. I've really got to get this on video some day!

She's very maternal, and loves to baby her dolls. I think she'll make a fine big sister and be a good helper to Mommy and Daddy!

She's still hoping for a baby sister.

She's very affectionate. She loves to snuggle. Any time Mommy or Daddy is leaving, she insists on a hug and a kiss and a handshake first.

She loves music and always has. She's a good singer and knows all the words to lots of songs. She loves to "dance", which basically means twirling around until she's so dizzy she falls down. She wants to do this every week at church, which is a bit of a problem since we always sit in the front row with Daddy.

One of her favorite songs is "Amazing Grace How Sweet." She sings along with the words on most verses, but for some reason prefers to meow on verse 2.

She loves being read to. She corrects us if we read something wrong.

She makes me feel very special when I pick her up from the nursery after church. She comes running to the door squealing, "Mommy, Mommy! That's my Mommy! Oh, Mommy, I missed you so much!" I feel like the most important person in the world right then.
