Growth Spurt

All her summer dresses are ridiculously short.
We had to buy all new shoes.
She can put together 48 piece puzzles all by herself.
Her bedtime prayers now include phrases like:  "Please keep me safe at school from the traffic" or "Thank you for the birds that sing and the rain for the flowers."
She generally deals with disappointment without tears.
She loves to count to 100 (although still needs help knowing which tens column comes after 30, 40, 50...)
She has mastered pedaling her tricycle (and is improving with pedaling AND steering at the same time.)
Her drawings are beginning to actually look like things.
She can reach the faucet handles on the bathroom sink from her step stool.
She always wants to be a part of adult conversations, often asking "What are you guys talking about?"
She loves to practice her reading, independently sounding out 3 and 4 letter words.
She generally gets her shoes on the correct feet.
She is always good about keeping an eye on her little sister.
She can work the laptop, the television remotes, and cell phones like a pro.
She is a legitimate helper with cooking, cleaning, and home repairs.
She is only 3 1/2 years old...but she continues to grow and change and blossom into an amazing little girl.

Where did my baby go????
