Genevieve, you are such an exuberant little girl. It is amazing to watch you changing each day. You keep us laughing all day long with all your antics!! You definitely keep me on my toes!
You are a strong little girl and I pray every day that God would use that strength of will that you demonstrate to me each day to help you to stand firm for Him. I think about all of the things that you are going to face in this world and sometimes it scares me. Above all things, I hope that you will be firmly rooted in the love of your Heavenly Father, so that no matter what comes your way you will be able stay pure and remain steadfast in your faith in God. I pray that God will help me to teach you His ways and give me grace so that I can be a good example to you.
I just love you so much Genevieve. I treasure your smile, your voice, your sweet, caring heart, your infectious laugh. I love to watch you dance and sing, which you do all day long. You dance up on your toes like a little ballerina and you wave your arms gracefully. But your favorite thing to do lately is to walk around with your “long hair” which can be a scarf, a playsilk, a blanket or just about anything long. You will just walk around and around in circles dragging your “hair” behind you. You are obsessed with Rapunzel! (And all the other princesses too!)
One of the things that you do lately that it so funny is when you ask us to do something or for something and we say you no, you respond by saying “I don’t mind!”
“Can I have chocolate cake for breakfast?” “No, that is not a healthy breakfast.” “I don’t mind.”
“Genevieve, get down from the table. It’s not safe to stand on the table.” “I don’t mind!”
You have been practicing piano every day and I am so impressed with how well you are doing. You go to the piano on your own a lot and play your favorite songs. Sometimes we have to gently encourage (translation: bribe) you to practice but I think you really enjoy playing. You don’t want to perform for anyone though!! I love to sit and practice with you. It is so exciting to watch you improve and I love that it is something we can do together.
You are my special little girl and I will love you always!!
