five and a half
you have been waiting for so long to be five and a half. nearly since you turned five. and here you are...i'd say this was my favorite age hands down but then i say that always. still, you have changed so much in the last year. you are longer, more thoughtful, with the funniest phrases. your dream life is more active and you are afraid of more things that go bump in the night.
this week you had a fever that lasted five days. we were very worried as you slept all day and showed no signs of improving. all of a sudden, the fever broke and now you look a few inches taller. i've heard in the steiner philosophy there is a correlation between fever and growth spurts and now i'm a believer.
i love watching you with your baby sister. your tenderness moves me every day. yesterday we picked mulberries from our tree. i was in the backyard with francesca when you came out with a little plate of freshly washed mulberries and greek yogurt for dipping. you were so proud of your pretty presentation and told francesca, "that's ok frankie, you eat them. i can get us more."
you have such a generous heart elodie. you have taught me so much about truly listening and being open to others.
things you say:
how old is god? -- how old is him?
we like old cars right? cause they're pretty. but not new cars!
yay we go to Paris and I'll give you lots of kisses! (To sufjan)
There's an island called whidbeyand island. And there are lots and lots of deers on whidbeyand island.
I'm gonna have only two kids...named Sally and honk honk. Come here honk honk!
