Whew! It has been a crazy-amazing ride for the last couple of months!
As we wait for our PH (Preliminary Hearing) Date (this is where a parent – if known – or an authority who signed off if abandoned comes before the judge), I thought it’d be nice to write about life for a bit!
My little “princess” La is now a big 6 year old Her favorite colors are still purple and red and she’s mid-1st Grade in all subjects except Reading (she’s beginning 2nd grade level for reading). She is my big helper. She loves to help out and is great helping mommy with her siblings. She loves princesses still and enjoys arts and crafts, reading, writing, drawing, building with blocks, playing dress up, etc. This one… she’s my fashionista. She is great at coordinating outfits, shoes, accessories, and is very verbal on how she wants her hair fixed She (along with her sister) have become quite the entrepreneurs, looking for ways to earn ice cream/fun money! Out of all 3, I think her personality is most similar to mine… which can be interesting! Ha! Plus, she over-talks… like me. Sigh. She’s sensitive and oh-so-smart! Love this kid! Funny words: Pea-hawk (Peacock) Her biggest fear?: Having to shave someday and “having to have babies someday because it will hurt” — Thanks to whomever introduced that one
(No, we did NOT get a new dog.)
Ro is…. our clown. While her sister is dressing up in the most elaborate princess dresses, Ro is finding the craziest pieces to complete her wardrobe. She’s fun and crazy and goofy. This is the child who finds the loopholes. A few weeks ago, we asked her, “If we put a cake in front of you but told you not to touch it to eat it, what would you do?” Her response? “I’d eat it with my FACE!” Who needs to touch a cake to eat it? She loves to help out, too… when she has time for it She’s in Kindergarten and really likes Dora, Diego, trains, and hedgehogs. She loves babies and building with blocks, arts and crafts, and miniature things.
AJ is Steven’s mini-me. Stubborn, goofy, and sweet. He’s daddy’s little shadow and unlike the girls, he reaches for daddy (if he’s home) when he doesn’t feel good! He is conservative with his kisses but gives hugs freely every morning and afternoon. He likes trains, ninja turtles, elmo, PUPPIES!, trucks, his ukelele, blocks, and his sisters’ shoes.
(He can put them on himself. I’m thinking that we need to get some awesome ninja turtle boy-toms that are bling bling… for BOYS to help satisfy his craving for over the top shoes! For those of you who remember.. he’s always LOVED shoes since he was tiny… he used to collect them and wear them on his hands!)
