You are 70 months old today.
We had a lot of big events this month: the end of summer, Family Day, Chinese Moon Festival and...the start of kindergarten! Yep! You made it Big Girl!
On September 20, we celebrated four years together! Four years seems like such a short span of time, especially because it feels like you've ALWAYS been a part of our family. You said you wanted pie for our special day so we all walked to our local pie shop where your friend M was waiting to surprise you and help you celebrate!
September is always a tricky month because it is the end of summer and the freedom that comes with it. We went out with a bang, spending part of Labor Day weekend at the zoo
and later, at the beach with Lucy D. and her family.
But if there is one thing that can trump all of that, it is spending time with animals. Bella gets daily love and attention from you.
Speaking of the dentist, you pointed out that one of your teeth was loose during our appointment this month. Dr. Boyd confirmed that your bottom left tooth is indeed loose and that three more are working their way out as well. You now spend a great deal of your time wiggling it, eager to see what the tooth fairy will bring you.
Our last big event this month was the Chinese Moon Festival. Your summer camp teacher, Angel lao shi, invited us for dim sum in Chinatown so we set off on the el to meet up.
Your writing is improving as you can see by the letter you wrote Nana:
Dear Nana, I love you. I am happy that I am playing piano in the fall. Lucy
We were driving and you noticed an older model corvette and were oohing and ahhing over it, as was Daddy.
I said, "When you get rich, Lucy, you can buy daddy a corvette to thank him for raising you."
You: "What if he's dead by the time I get rich?"
Having you in my life makes me want to live forever, just to see what you will do next. You are an amazing little girl and I am grateful that we were given the privilege to call you our daughter 4 years ago.
