Waverly Lately

Our Waverly Maye.  Just over four months from four years old & such a little lady.  She's fierce, opinionated, independent, and sassy.  She's sensitive, smart, curious, sweet, helpful, and so very affectionate.  She can make you want to literally pull your hair out one minute and just eat up her cuteness the next.  She drives me crazy and I am forever crazy in love with her.

Waverly is all-girl these days, she loves to dance, do her nails, play with her babies, and go through all of my jewelry.  She likes to lay out her clothes at night and wants to choose every aspect of her outfit, including at least a couple bracelets, a necklace, a bow, and a tutu.  That she puts on all by herself. She requests Anna hair most mornings & will have an epic meltdown if it looks like Elsa instead.  Her favorite color is purple, her favorite number is 8, and she is turning five on her birthday (something she reminds me of every single day).  She absolutely adores school and her best friends there, even mentioning them can put the biggest smile on her face.  She likes to watch Daniel Tiger & Peppa Pig and then reenact them on her own.  She has the biggest imagination ever, listening to her play when she gets into one of her creative moods is one of my very favorite things to do.

Her favorite foods are bagels, soup, and mac & cheese, and she has the biggest sweet tooth ever.  She likes to go to Target and pick out all the things and then tries to convince us of why she deserves them.  She turns the sweetness WAY up at night when she knows she should be sleeping and always comes back for "just one more thing".

She gets frustrated or mad easily, especially when it comes to something she can't figure out on her own.  She loves to be the one in charge and doesn't deal well when she isn't.  She adooooooooores being a big sister and loves Avalon more than anyone, but will melt into a puddle if we tell her to give her space.  Her love language is touch all.day.long.  A good & a bad thing.

She runs into our room with a kiss & hug every morning and asks for a story every night.  She wants so badly to be big but at the same time, still likes to be little.


She's as high-maintenance as they come and there's not one thing I would change about her, even in the most challenging moments, I am forever grateful I get to be her mama.  Waverly Maye, I just know your future is as bright as your beautiful blue eyes and I can't wait to be there every step of the way, baby girl.  Love you to the moon.

  5. What a beautiful post to your beautiful girl!!! She sounds so much like Cameron (minus the Anna/Elsa hair, although he would request that, if his hair was long enough!), and I cannot believe that FOUR has almost entered our lives. FOUR? That seems so old!! They are little people now....not babies! I have loved, loved, loved watching her grow and love when you write about her. I can just imagine so many of these things! xo

  8. Sweet girl! Arden can be the Elsa to her Anna. Lately she's been asking to grow her hair out so she can have "one long white braid". Oh boy. Love these high maintenance girls!
