Happy Birthday Tressa

My dearest Tressa, you are seven, going on thirty years old!

You weigh 48.4 pounds and are 49 ½” (4ft. ½in.) tall. You wear a size 13 shoe and a 6 pant and shirt.

You are definitely one of the most silly seven-year old’s I know! You fart without shame, you know how to laugh at yourself and you make everything a game. You are almost always laughing or making up a joke to make someone else laugh. Even being this playful, funny little girl, you are still a softy at heart. Your feelings are easily hurt and you are always the first to lend a shoulder to someone who is feeling down. Now here’s the tricky part, if I didn’t live with you every day, you’d never know it! Lol You can be such a brat! You definitely don’t like not getting your way and you and your brother fight like enemies! Always calling one another names and beating each other up! I’m basically just the referee.

This year you were Terrific Kid in your class twice! And you were a straight A student! You rock! You lost your library books weekly, so you never made your AR goals. We even ended up paying for two books that you lost this year. :/

There is never a dull moment when you are around! I love that so much about you! Thanks for being an awesome kiddo!

Mommy and Daddy love you so! Happy birthday Tootie!

Happy Birthday Amaya

*So, I’m a little late, but the posts are coming!

You are a seven years old! You are 46.2 lbs. and 49 ¼” (4ft. ¼in.) tall. You wear a size 13 shoe and a 6 pant and shirt.

It’s amazing how much you have changed in the last year. How much you have matured and grown. Last year you were just a playful, silly little girl. This year, you worry about the small things, you put so much more thought into your answers and you’ve become sensitive. You will cry at the drop of a hat. For instance, at your birthday party, you received COLOR Splasherz. You have asked for this since Christmas. You were super excited! We colored the jewels and you threaded your necklace. While trying to put it on, all the beads fell to the floor. You bawled so much! It broke my heart! I soothed you and you fixed your necklace and tried to put it on, only to have the beads fall to the floor again. And then a third and fourth time! Each time resulting in a break down. You were a wreck! Eventually, I tied a knot on one side, so that it wouldn’t happen again. 😛

You are so super creative! You are constantly building things with Lego’s and drawing the most detailed, story filled pictures. You spend a lot of your time playing Barbie’s, reading and drawing. You love tea parties, makeup, nail polish and playing dress up.

At school you made terrific kid and you were a straight A student! You were two books away from having read the most in your class. You were one of the two students from your class who scored the most AR points and earned a trip to the zoo! You love to read. You learned to write in cursive this year while I was teaching your brother. You’re pretty good at it. You’ve picked up the juggling sticks again that Kris gave you. You’re getting better all the time.

Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you! Happy birthday sweetheart!

Happy Birthday Joseph!

My little man turned NINE on April 16th. NINE YEARS OLD PEOPLE! How did a whole year go by without me knowing?! I’ve been thinking about how quickly these nine years have passed and then realize that there is only another nine years before he is an adult. What am I going to do?!?!? It scares the shit out of me that he’s growing so quickly.

Joseph, you weigh 61.5 lbs. and are 54″ (4ft. 6in.) tall. You wear a size 3.5 shoe, a size 8 (M) shirt and a size 10 pant. Those size 10 jeans are held up only with the help of the adjusters inside and a belt you skinny little thing!

So many wonderful and amazing things have made this year awesome for you! You have matured so much. You’re better at controlling your temper when you become angry and your fits are rare. Your grades in school are outstanding and you were a mere 5 points away from qualifying for gifted! You were pretty upset that you didn’t make it, but Mommy and Daddy are super proud of you! You are so awesome! You also became a big brother again! I was so worried that you would be jealous of him or would act out after his birth, but you are the most awesome big brother ever! You are always holding him and asking to feed him when Mommy is at work and you like to help change his diapers and get him dressed. You kiss and check on him constantly. You are so good at making people smile and you have the kindest heart of any little boy I know.

You’re still an electronic gaming nerd, but you’re playing outside a lot more now that we actually have a huge back yard to play in. You love to play Frisbee and catch with Daddy.

You’ve grown your hair out a bit this year. It’s shoulder length with layers. You go through phases of wanting short and long hair. This is definitely the longest you’ve let it get though. I love it too! It’s so freaking cute on you!

Thanks for being an awesome nine-year old! Happy (belated) birthday man!

Love,

Mommy and Daddy

Dear Tressa

Today you are six. You are a ‘big kid’. When will you listen and stop growing up already?!

You weigh 42.4lbs and are 46 ½” (3′ 10 ½”) tall. You have grown exactly two inches and 2.4 pounds since last year. You wear a size 6 pant and shirt and a size 12 ½ shoe.

You are still a thumb-sucking junkie. Not quite sure how we’re going to break that habit before you start losing your baby teeth. You have finally gotten over the fear of starting off on your bike without help. You ride that bike like a champ now. Fearless and able to look up from the ground. Lol

You love talking to yourself. Before your showers, you spend a good 15 minutes looking at and talking to yourself in the mirror. It’s hilarious! Speaking of, I got some pretty funny video of you when you didn’t know I was recording this morning. I can’t wait to share it with the world! Haha!

You have found a love for Justin Bieber. You are practically obsessed with him. You even asked if I knew where he lived so I could take you there. Sorry kiddo. You’re grounded from boys for life!

You are always saying the silliest things that just make me laugh so much. You’re definitely a little goofball. Right now you love telling people to “quit being a butler.”, which I assume is your safe word for butthead. You also love the word duh! There is almost never a span of more than 15 minutes that you go without complimenting someone or telling them how much you love them. You are just the sweetest little lovebug of a child ever.

Happy birthday little lovebug.

 

Love,

Mommy & Daddy
