Audra Grace, here you are at six. Six!
You are the biggest ball of fun ever there was. Our 4th of July firecracker. You're always up for something new, an adventure, a new idea, a change. You have plenty of energy and don't need much sleep to recharge. You make friends wherever you go and make folks smile along the way.
You're so crafty, clever and such a natural at baking and cooking. You are amazingly athletic, a natural at whatever you try. You are amazing with animals, so gentle and interactive with them. Your favorite things to play are all things with live animals and old fashioned play.
Although you are not a fan of sitting, you almost always will sit for a book, especially chapter books. You love fairy tales, but as you say, definitely NOT Disney fairy tales, but the real ones. Old writings you love, and you regularly use the advanced vocabulary you hear.
You love BLTs, salads, lettuce sandwiches, grazing in the garden and finding edible weeds. You also love eggs. You have eaten up to FIVE in one serving, although usually it's 3-4! Really you eat anything and everything. For being a tiny little girl, you eat man sized portions.
Pretty much the only things you don't like are transitioning from something fun and waiting. As long as we keep the adventures rolling, you're at your best. Although you test our patience daily, we are forever grateful for your spontaneity, spunk and loving nature. I imagine someday you really will live in the city and wear "up shoes". And when you do, I am sure we will enjoy the adventures you bring us on there.
Happy birthday, Audra. You make us all smile.
