Gasp. Does that say 5th? Ummm, I think she was just born – there is no way that was 5 years ago!
Here is the link to my first post of Daphne. Here is the link to one of my first posts about life with 3 kids. Looking back at some of these posts is cracking me up! I do NOT remember those first few weeks of have 3 kids!
We have watched Daphne grow up over the last year. She is definitely queen of her own little world. She loves all things princess and mermaid – typically, pretending to be one or the other (or both) most days. Specifically, right now she is a little obsessed with Ariel and Elsa. She is trying to mold those 2 princesses into 1 so she can be a mermaid and an ice princess. Ha! She is the most creative in her play and actually loves to play by herself. She will gladly play with her sisters or friends, but she doesn’t need others to stay entertained. She loves to sing, dance, and dress-up! She rarely wears normal clothes – unless we are leaving the house, she is almost always wearing dress-up clothes.
She is still a mama’s girl and tends to be hesitant in new situations. She is still pretty quiet at Mom’s Day Out, dance, Sunday school, etc, but at home, she rarely stops talking. She has lots of questions about things going on around her and she is definitely thinking abouthow things work.
Finally, after about 3 years of not sleeping well, she is back into a good habit. I thought for sure when we broke her of her finger sucking habit, that we would be back to not sleeping well. Thankfully, that is not the case. She is usually super snuggly in the mornings and likes to have a little bit of time alone with one parent or the other before her sisters wake up for the day.
Here is a photo dump of pics from the last year!!! Enjoy!
