Lacey is FOUR!

Our precocious girl is four! Lacey is full of giggles and loves to cuddle. She loves all things sparkly and girly. I have never known a child this ago who loves arts and crafts as much as she does. She has her own table and art cart downstairs full of do dads that she can glue on paper or wooden sticks or whatever she can find. She loves her baby dolls, stuffed animals and blankies. Playing "kitchen" where she makes a meal and has everyone sit around the table (ottoman) and eat together, including her doll in its high chair, is one of her favorite imaginative games. The other is playing school, and boy is she a strict teacher! She lines up her stuffed animal "students" and they each have to participate in whatever the lesson may be. She often asks a family member to play with her, and none of us have the patience for her bossiness except maybe Grammie.

Favorite characters include Hello Kitty, Disney princesses (especially Elsa and Rapunzel) and Minnie Mouse.

Miss Lacey Lu is also very strong willed, stubborn and challenging. I mean she will make the best parent think twice about their skills to smooth the rough edges. I know she was made just as God intended, and I pray that the Lord gives us as her parents the ability to smooth those edges without breaking her spirit as I know He has plans for her.

Recent activities have included ballet, which she started earlier this year, swimming lessons and gymnastics.

Four year old stats:

  • Beautiful, curly, blonde hair that about reaches her chin
  • Brown eyes
  • Size 4T clothes, size 9 shoe
  • Weight about 33 lbs, height about 39-40 inches
  • Can write her name, though insists the "a" has the stick on the other side like a "p" and no one can tell her otherwise

We were at Grandpa Jim's house on her real birthday day, and she talked him into not only taking her to Build-a-Bear to celebrate, which she has never done and completely enjoyed as she was thoroughly spoiled, but also to Chuck E Cheese! What a lucky girl to have such fun on her special day!

For her birthday celebrations with friends she decided she wanted a Hello Kitty and a Princess party. So she took Hello Kitty cookies and napkins to school and had a Princess party at home. For her party, we invited 2 friends from school and her cousin, Eden, to come over to get their nails done, decorate cupcakes and color princess pictures together. The girls wore their princess dresses and it was sweet and very low key. And I think they all had fun.

Happy 4th Birthday, Lacey!
