Vier Jahre alt

Charlotte turned four yesterday around 9:30 pm. :)

At four years old, she is as energetic, wild, and fun-loving as ever!

She can write all of the upper-case letters of the alphabet and knows them by their sounds. She is also able to count to 20 in English and German. Going to Kindergarten has been a really positive experience for Charlotte. She has made some new friends, has learned how to cope with people not understanding her (a new thing for our loquacious little one,) loves the social interaction every morning, and just generally is more cooperative when she is at home.

Right now her favorites (per our chit-chat) are...
Color: white (the color of polar bears and vanilla ice cream)
Food: cheese tortellini
Vegetable: green beans
Treat: ice cream
Movie: Gummi Bears (the old school cartoon we watch on Youtube)
School activity: lunchtime with her friends
Best friend: Cousin Leah

Some of OUR favorite things about Charlotte are her incredible imagination and dramatic personality, her excitement about travel and meeting new people, when she is kind and loving with Toby (this doesn't happen all the time but usually,) and how she wants to be "just like Daddy" (she may look like me, but they are two peas in a pod!)

Happy birthday Bubba!
