End of year @ Super Scholars

It's been a big year for Scarlett. At the beginning of the school year she only knew a handful of letters and now she knows them all and can write her name. After her best friend Ilikea moved away, she vowed never to play with anyone else at school but recently proclaimed a new buddy in Jasmine. Her teachers tell us she always had a very long winded description of all her drawings which are still very abstract.

Here is the classes final performance.

Every morning, Max comes into our room and jumps in bed for a few minutes to cuddle. Sometimes he brings a favorite toy or book with him. This morning, he brought a printout of all the potions you can make in Minecraft and is giving mommy an education.

Dramatic girls come in small packages

Another birthday means another trip to the doctor. I had the option of waiting till next year for vaccines, but the doctor talked me into a few. During her last shots, she didn't even shed a tear. This time however, she couldn't be more dramatic. According to Scarlett, this is because she had thicker skin last time. A visit to the toy store and even begging a restaurant for her favorite bread made her happy for a fleeting moment, but then she would remember her traumatic experience and break down crying. She couldn't get to sleep because, "I can't stop thinking about it!" If she is this dramatic now, I can't wait to see her teenage years :)

This visit also confirmed that Scarlett indeed is a little nugget. At her 3 year appointment she was 7% for height. At 4 years she is a bit under 37 inches and has dropped a bit to 2.5%. The doctor feels like she is just slow to grow and isn't too concerned, but she would like us to do a bone age test (just a hand X-ray) to be sure. Her weight has been pretty consistent at 17% the past few years which is currently about 31 pounds.

Scarlett looked in the fridge and saw eggs and decided she really wanted to "make" an egg. She cracked, whisked, scrambled and salted it with only a little help.
