My dear Anna-Kate. I can no longer call you Anna-Katherine because you hate that name. I am instructed to always call you Anna-Kate because that's what you like.
Anna-Kate, you know what you like! You like to talk. Talk, talk, talk. Especially on the phone. You like full attention and aren't shy about demanding it.
You love nursery rhymes, poetry and the classic stories (Three Little Pigs, Henny Penny, Goldilocks, etc). You will sit and flip through books. You enjoy headphones and your books on CD. You love library story hour. You are always interested in cuddling up for books. You are happy to tell us the entire story if we don't have a minute to tell it to you. You also are starting to make up your own rhymes and stories. In general, so much of what you say and your vocabulary is hilarious. You keep us laughing.
You still love colorful food best. You're not a fan of rice or muffins but will eat any fruit or vegetable. Lately you eat a lot of green onions from the garden. Daddy says you smell like a sub.
You enjoy collecting eggs, playing babies, dressing up the cat, talking and cutting things with scissors. You make me a lot of bookmarks. You spend a lot of time playing queen and ordering your servants around. You also like to play old fashioned with your sister. You enjoy pretending you are big and doing 'school'. You pretend to do math, writing, spelling, etc. You prefer your outside time to be all barefoot and no coat. You an excellent little hiker and do a really great job keeping up with the big kids.
You are responsible, a great sleeper and do a great job cleaning up after yourself. You say the sweetest things, love to give little gifts and throw your arms up for spontaneous hugs many times a day. You love to run into our arms for a hug.
You are such a joy, the perfect finale to our little family. So glad I get to love you.
