Melody turned 5 on Monday. I like 5 so far minus the part about her coming up with her own schedule for the afternoon. She was moved into the big kid class with kindergarten kids (and three of her friends from her other class). She is almost reading and she writes and types via dictation and is pretty amazing but emotional. It is easy to come up with something she would like to have or to do. Most of the time she is a great big sister and still curious about the world and asks many questions.
When she was swaddled in her baby blanket at the hospital we thought she looked like a waffle cone with vanilla ice cream on top. I just realized she had ice cream in a waffle cone for her birthday too!
