I write letters to my children on their birthdays. Here is last year’s letter to Aria.
Happy 4th birthday!
What a year you’ve had. A great year of new things, like preschool, moving from a car seat to booster seat, transitioning completely out of pull-up diapers (YAY!), learning to write your name, figuring out how to fold your laundry the KonMari way, and finding new things that you love.
Currently, you love playing Memory, creating art, eating instant ramen, having books read out loud to you, singing songs from Doc McStuffins, telling us about your friends at preschool, riding on your scooter, and cleaning windows with what you call “window-dex” (aka Windex). Most days you dress up in creative, colorful outfits, which accurately reflects your exuberant personality.
You add so much joy and flair everywhere you go. You are confident, and able to jump into lots of new situations with excitement. There are so many unique and special things about you, Aria.
I hope this next year brings new discoveries and adventures.
Hugs, kisses, and lots of love,
