Chess is turning four.

My big girl is turning four on the 19th.  She is so excited.

It seems like just a few months ago I was posting her baby stats and blogging about her first solid foods.  Her little brain has soaked up a ton of information in four short years.

Part of me wants her to stay little forever.  But, it is exciting to see her grow and change.  I wouldn't really want her to stay little forever, but I do need to try harder to enjoy her while she is still pretty little.

And now, four facts for my soon-to-be four-year-old:

1. Chess is responsible and usually helps pick up toys and clean up when I ask her to.

2. Lately she has been into drawing and gluing things onto paper.  There are markers and crayons and paper all over the place most of the time.

3. She has taken her role as big sister very seriously, and has become very good at "directing" Lera.  Sometimes she is more tactful than others.

4. She is very talkative and asks a million questions a day.  Her Sunbeams teacher at church says she is always quick to answer questions in class and that she is a smart and sweet girl.

*bonus fact* (I thought of one more good one) Chess loves picking out her own clothes and wearing things that are "pretty."  This includes: dresses, skirts, pink, necklaces, hairbows, headbands, etc.  The more accessories, the better.

Momma and Daddy and Lera love our Chess so very much!
