Free Four

Pink Floyd, Obscured by Clouds 1972

How did this:

Become THIS?

It seems, just yesterday, she was so small.

Now? Not so much.

The curly hair?

No longer so curly. Sniff.

However.  Her fashion choices?

Still leave something to be desired.

Her brother greeted his new "bee-bee" with stalker-like tendencies. 

He's calmed down now, but is still really into his sister.

She will argue with me ALL DAY LONG, but later that night, she will climb into my lap, snuggle close and rub my tummy with her hand while she drifts asleep.

She loves princesses, the color pink, unicorns, kitties and anything frilly. Add some Glitter and you're golden. She only wears skirts, but will happily dig in the mud for worms.  And she's not afraid to catch frogs and bugs. Her favorite books are Fancy Nancy, Barbie, Cat the Cat and anything nonfiction having to do with bugs, frogs and reptiles.  Her favorite Powerpuff girl is Buttercup ("because Buttercup is ROUGH, Mama.")  She knows as much about dinosaurs as her brother and she wants to be a paleontologist when she grows up.  

All in all, she's really come into her own.

And we cannot wait to see where she goes from here.

Happy birthday, Peanut Butter Anjali.

Happy Birthday Anjali! I love that she rubs your belly to fall asleep. Also, If Anjali is 4, then I've been reading your blog for a long time. Still loving what you write.

Happy Birthday Anjali! I love that she and Arun are best friends. And that she is a rough and tumble princess!
