Miss Audra Grace, you are five!
You are a girl with spunk, energy, a sense of humor and a whole lot of love. You run everywhere you go. You climb, you hang, you are fearless. You sometimes give me a heart attack. You get dirty, you never worry, you are carefree, you are happy. You give the best hugs, love to be lifted up and say the sweetest things sometimes and the funniest other times.
You eat most everything, but your fave meal would be scrambled eggs (which you could eat 5 of those) paired with any fruit. You can also be found in the garden eating raw basil, green onions, garlic scapes, collards, kale or rhubarb. You hate cooked onions.
Although you don't mind getting dirty, you also like fancy. Sparkles, dresses, shoes. Stuff I don't understand.
Even though we aren't sure you are listening at times, you pick up and remember so much throughout your days. You are interested in gardening, painting and animals. Always animals. Especially baby animals. You also love books, especially the same ones over and over. A car ride anywhere needs an audio book according to you. You are an excellent baker too. You can crack an egg better than most adults.
You are miss social butterfly. You love people, especially teenagers. In fact, you want to be a teenager and think it's taking forever to get to be a teen. You can insert yourself into any conversation, with familiar people or a stranger. You make friends wherever you go. You have such empathy too and pray for those who are having hard times. We call you our prayer warrior. You also love to talk and talk and talk on the phone.
You finally sleep through the night. Maybe someday you won't wake with the sun. It rises mighty early in Maine, as do you.
You add such energy and love to our family and are also the one who tires us out! Or house is never lonely with you chattering away. I always think that someday you will do big things with your energy and personality. I look forward to seeing what big things you'll do at age FIVE!
