Four Years Old

Kenley Dee is four years old today!


I started off asking Kenley questions from the birthday interview we did last year and when we were done, she asked for more questions, so the interview is a little bit longer. This makes writing her blog post easy since she’s the one telling you about herself. Here we go…

It’s amazing how much Kenley has grown over the past year. She has transformed from a toddler to a little girl and sometimes acts like she’s a teenager…. (hence threenager). Being three was hard at times, but she learned so much this past year and has really come into her own. She has been to the dentist twice and really hasn’t been a fan of it either time. She got three stitches in her forehead after falling on the playground at school. She currently knows the days of the week, the months of the year, and has been working so hard on counting to 100 (only needing a little help here and there). She can spell her first and middle name, as well as Crosby’s name; and we’re still working on spelling her last name. It’s a long one! Her memory is outstanding and really baffling sometimes. She’s also a little too smart for her own good too. Preschool has been going so well after it took about a week or so to transition into routine in the new room and her behavior has improved immensely. She’s a big helper around the house and makes her bed every single morning (unprompted). She also helps out with setting the table and putting her clean laundry away when she’s asked. Bedtime is still a challenge, depending on the day, but I think that is too be expected at this age. She’s a great eater and loves her veggies more than anything — hence her favorite food. She occasionally will say that she doesn’t like something, but by the next time she eats it, she forgets about it… again, just being three.


Kenley Dee – you have a heart of gold. Happy birthday!
