Bethany at 4!

Bethany you are four years old.  You started preschool this year and love it.  You have no problem hanging with the 5 year olds in class--physically and language wise you are a peer.
You can balance on the balance bike and pedal a trike like a pro and can even pedal a bit on Lydia's bike without training wheels. 
You love to throw a good tantrum.  I think it is because you know if you cry loudly your brother will give in to your every demand.  It is really annoying.
You can cry at the drop of a hat, over very small things.  You are very emotional.  I think you learned this wonderful skill (as well as how to make yourself sick) from Lydia.
Ariel is your favorite princess.  You and your friend Lily at school play it constantly!  Your second favorite is Elsa off of "Frozen" and you always ask me to be Anna.
You love seaweed chips, Kale, bagels with cream cheese and oatmeal.  Tomatoes are your favorite veggie followed by cucumbers.  Both you will devour!  You are by far the best eater in the family.  You like everything Lydia likes, everything Elijah likes and then some!  You are always game to try something before you decide that you don't like it. 
You are finally sleeping and sleeping in!  You and sissy normally sleep until 6am now.  I remember last year it was rare that I got to sleep past 5am.  It is a huge deal and we're all happier for it.  You typically go to bed at 7pm, though some nights it is as early as 6pm.  You don't nap except on Thursday (we are up until 9pm on Wednesday night for Awana).
You are rocking the bible verses--you can sing all of the books of the bible, do your verses, say brothers and sisters verses and even more from our songs.  You also know the days of the week, months of the year, continents and oceans all from song.
You hate loose pants--you want to wear leggings all the time.  Sometimes with a shirt and sometimes with a dress or skirt.  You love dresses and skirts.  Your favorite is the hot pink hello Kitty dress and legging combo I got you at Walmart. 
You are fairly stubborn and disobedient.  You will act like you don't hear me or completely ignore something I tell you to do.  Normally this ends in me forcing you to do it and you pitching a fit.  You are absolutely amazing and you teach me patience every day.
You love your granny like there is no tomorrow.  Next to me she is your favorite person in the world.
You love Friday School and Ms. Lori.  It is your favorite day of the week.
