Dear Miss O

You're 6 today!  Its hard for me to believe, as it is every year it seems, that you are another year older!  Not just a preschooler anymore, you are a little lady. 

I still like to think about you like this.

While you are still rather tiny, you have grown into a beautiful girl.  One who has my eye color, but generally still looks like a girl version of daddy. 

At 6, you :
*love Kindergarten.  You get sad when you have to miss for a dr. appointment or if you are sick. 
*are still a bit anxious about things.  If something doesn't go according to "plan" you tend to obsess over it. 
*are very independant.  You always have been, but this year it seems like you've become even more independent. 
*are a leader.  During your birthday party, just a few days ago, you were bossing your friends around.  I asked you not to be too bossy, and one of your friends said "that's okay.  Olivia's always the boss when we play."  Its sort of funny to think about you being the boss of all of your friends when you are so little compared to them.  I guess you have to make up for your size in personality.
*weigh 33 pounds and are 41 inches tall.  Still a little petite thing.  Its still hard to find you clothes, but you often wear them for more than one season.  That part is nice. :)
*have a love/hate relationship with your middle brother.  A can sometimes be your bestie, and other times it seems like you can't get along.  I guess that's par for the course for being 16 months apart...
*love to read chapter books.  We just finished The Little House on the Prairie for the second time.  You love to read and you love to be read to.
*are all about the rules.  Everyone.must.follow.the.rules. 
*are so loved.  By Mommy and Daddy, and by your brothers.

I look forward to what God has in store for you this year, baby girl.  We love you.  Happy 6th birthday!
