ZJ is 4.5 years old!
ZJ wears 4t and some 5t clothes. She is wearing size 10 shoes.
ZJ loves school and has made many friends. She likes her teachers and would stay at school all day if she could. Her favorite activities are the pretend play areas which change themes each week where she likes to dress up and play, she also loves tea party, having books read to her and playing outside. At home her favorite activities are listening to books, riding her wheeled toy, duplo, dolls and doing activity sheets or books. She loves to play outside digging, riding her bike or petting the dogs. She got really good with her balance bike so about 2 weeks ago we tried her on IJ's 12", first bike and she's been riding it since. The only thing she struggles with is getting the pedals in a good place to start from a stopped position. ZJ has been reading for several months now. We've been working our way through sets of early readers. She had no trouble writing and forming all of her letters if you spell words for her. She can figure out a lot of spelling on her own. ZJ likes soccer and she continues to have weekly classes. She still loves her brother the most and wants to play with him but can treat him quite rudely.
ZJ eats a wide variety of healthy foods. She loves tomato soup, avocados, mangoes, apples, O cereal and cashews. She also loves chocolate. She goes to bed around 6:45 pm and sleeps till around 6:30 am. She stays in her bed the entire night much of the time now but still occasionally climbs into mine during the night. She has had several colds and a couple stomach viruses but no doctor visits and nothing that bothers her for too long.
