Since I have a nickname for C., “Little Boo”, I couldn’t resist giving K. a nickname too. She is unbelievably cute and has the sweetest dimples on both cheeks, so Dimples seems appropriate – at least for today.
Here is another delightful update from Erin:
well, we spent quite a bit of time with K. today and she is one heck of a kid!!!! she is hilarious. She is absolutely the most outgoing child there…she sings, she dances, she does tumbles, all to show off and get your attention and praise. She has crystal clear English when she says, “Excuse me, what is your name? My name is K.!” She sang to me, counted to 10, sang her ABC’s and was just hilarious. She is definitely NOT SHY and she is just so sweet and full of spunk and life and joy. She has an amazing and very special spirit. You guys are going to be so blessed with her. She is a hoot!!!!
She was very sweet with the smaller kids and seemed to like them a lot. She has lots of friends with the kids her age.
She does have a naughty streak (don’t they all!!!) she ran all the way down the driveway at one point and put her hand on the gate. (She is a very fast runner!!!!!) and three grownups yelled at her not to open it…so she opened it, and then ran all the way back laughing and laughing. She is also quite the daredevil…she was doing tumbles on the cement and jumping off of steps. She was a big show off. She sings the loudest, runs the fastest, smiles the biggest…she is happy and sweet and really, an amazingly wonderful little girl.
She is definitely a leader amongst the “middles” (not the babies, not the big kids) and the nannies all like her very much. I think she is just going to thrive in your family…she so very much wants love and attention. I think her age of five almost 6 is just about right. She is on the small side (but they all are over here). I think a 4-5T would be just right now. Her hair has grown quite long (we have lots of pictures that we’ll send you once we get home). She looks very healthy.
I don’t know if we’ll get back over there again or not, and we’ll definitely spend more time with her if we do. Anyway, I wanted to get this all to you while it was fresh in my mind. I’ll get the pictures to you as soon as I can.
Thank you for reading and for sharing our happiness. To any family members who are reading, it sounds like Dimples is going to do her share to contribute lots of energy to our family gatherings! ~Lisa
