We were taking a walk today just before supper, with Ethnie riding on her "new" tricycle. Her first one got stolen so we picked up a used one at a thrift store. She is so happy to have a tricycle again! She is very particular when she rides it and has a system: First, she opens up the storage compartment and puts dolly in there. Then, she has to turn the key in the trike all the way around. Finally, she gets on and starts riding. EVERY time she gets off and back on the trike she has to do those two things! It's really funny, but can make us impatient!
Anyway, while we were watching Ethnie ride we started talking about what she really means to us and how we would describe what she means to us in one sentence. It was really hard! We are just so grateful to be parents, especially to such a sweet pea of a girl. She is so very precious and every day we discover something new about her that we love. We can tell she is growing up to be a caring, polite and friendly person. She really has a love for the world around her and that is so delightful to watch. We are enjoying every minute of her growth and development, especially that of her personality. We couldn't be happier with our child. We love you, Ethnie.
