Five going on Sixteen

My sweet Elise is five. Hard to believe how quickly it goes. I felt like her years flew by because she was barely two when Cole was born and we all know where the attention has been since then...

She all of the sudden thinks she is very mature and tries to change diapers, put Cole down for naps and do things on her own that she really shouldn't. It is so funny. She even told me that I could leave her home alone to watch Cole and Vanessa. I wish! Elise is such a pleasure in our home. She has such a sweet heart and loves to give hugs and snuggles to everyone but especially her daddy. She is so helpful and loves to help me cook and bake or do anything for Cole and Vanessa. She is as girly as they come but can also keep up with her brothers and other boys. She is also surprisingly independent which kind of drives me crazy at times but is a fabulous trait. I will tell her something and she will tell me I am wrong. Constantly. Apparently my five year old knows more about the world than I do. She really is like a teenager. haha.

We were in the mountains for her birthday and spent the day swimming at the rec center. She has been wanting to get her ears pierced for a long time so that was the big birthday gift. She had big alligator tears but sat still and dried her eyes as soon as she looked in the mirror at her glittery pink heart earrings. She kept flipping her hair and saying how beautiful she looked. Oh my.
