Somehow Elizabeth has gotten bigger, older, taller, less toothy and possibly wiser. She now weighs 44 pounds or about the same as the average 4.5 year old. She can reach all kinds of things and what she can't reach she finds innovative and terrifying ways to get at. She can write in cursive, perform various feats of mathematical wizardry and sing just about any song from Frozen. She is a great big sister and has started to play really nicely with her brother for extended periods of time. She can bargain like no one's business and will do so to her advantage shamelessly. Sleep is finally something that she has figured out how to do for an entire night at a stretch and if for some reason she gets interrupted or otherwise shortchanged she is a bit of a grump to put things mildly. She is very proud of being able to handle the monkey bars like a true monkey and has finally figured out that swimming is not the terrifying impossibility she once thought it was. We are very proud of her and can't wait to see what she will tackle next.
