Delaney at Six!

Wow, our first SIX! Holy cow. I can't believe that it has been six years since welcoming our first daughter to our family. Here is what Delaney is up to at 6 years old...

  • About 44 1/2" tall and 43 1/2 lbs
  • Loves to play video games...The Wii or her DS
  • Loves her webkinz...she has 7 now. She acts as if they are real, and if we don't treat them as so, we get yelled at. She brings one to the table for each meal to feed them, and puts them to bed at night too
  • Rides her bike--like a champ (sans training wheels at 5 1/2)
  • Loves dance--is currently in ballet and jazz (and will perform two dances in her June 2010 recital)
  • She says how she's an "adult" now because she's six...and insists on showering, and thinks her patience and listening has improved since her 6th birthday
  • Loves to be outside
  • Currently loves to watch Teen Titans, Avatar, and various other movies and TV shows (but is still more into animated shows vs. real-people)
  • Loves to draw, color, and write her own stories
  • Is starting to "sound out" words (i.e. she spelled out "Mary Krismas" for a card for her uncles)
  • Loves playing the "number game" which is guessing the ages of the celebrities who are having birthdays during the current week
  • LOVES school, and riding the bus. She gets great comments/compliments from her teacher--she's a great listener, helper, and very smart.
  • Likes to sleep on the floor in her sleeping bag
  • Enjoys watching the weather in the morning
  • Fave foods are bologna sammies, mac-n-cheese, and grilled cheese
  • Is great with Rowena, and wonderful friends with Katie--although they do fight bad at times
  • Loves being a "big" helper, and is great about doing her chores--taking Riggs out for bathroom breaks and cleaning her room and basement.

So, that is our Laney in a nutshell at six years old. She's getting so big and mature. She can't wait to go to school "all day." She thrives on structure, yet likes to be independent and enjoys freedom at the same time. Delaney--we love you so very, very much and are extremely proud of you!
