Truly beautiful girls, inside and out

Ro and Ree, I know I tell you a hundred times a day that I love you, and I kiss your sweet-smelling heads every chance I get, but you are just such special little girls. And I am the luckiest girl in the world to get to spend every day with you.

Sweet, silly baby Ree. You are always willing to share anything that you have, and are so generous with your hugs and beautiful smiles. You were the first one to figure out how to swing by yourself, and one of your greatest pleasures is to swing crazily high in your backyard for hours without having to wait in line or get off the swing before you're good and ready. You love to draw and it seems like everything you draw lately has smiley faces on it somewhere. Your drawings are as happy as you are. You adore dancing and music and you love to sing (loudly), especially with your sister. You delight in dragging all of your blankets downstairs and then snuggling up with your whole family and having a blanket party—even just saying the words "blanket party" makes you giddy and squealy with happiness.

Smart, brave little Ro. You are the first to conquer any new athletic skill, and love to run forever, travel endlessly across the monkey bars, and make up new tricks on your trapeze bar. You were the first to learn how to write letters, and one of your favorite things these days is to staple massive amounts of paper together and then make the coolest books with various pictures and words. You love to sing (just like your sister), and sing so loudly that anyone in the vicinity just has to listen and laugh. You have more patience than any kid I know—the other day you waited almost an hour in line to go on a new roller coaster. All of your friends bailed out of the line after a few minutes, but you were unwavering. And after we finally got on, you turned to me in the middle of the first insane drop and grinned hugely saying "Mama, this is crazy!"

You both make me laugh every single day. Seriously, how could four-year-olds be so funny? And you have so much creativity and joy. For each of you, your sister is your best friend, and I often think how wonderful it must be to grow up being able to talk with and play with your best friend anytime you want to.

Ree and Ro, I love you.

  16. I love 4. Well, next to the drama and last-ditch attempt to have tantrums, I love 4. So sweet, so genuinely marveled by daily life. By 5, they are bona fide kids, so I'll hang onto 4 just as long as we can (August 15th at this house).

    Thanks for sharing,

    Indiana Lori
