Sweet Girl!! I think I’ve mentioned in the past how much I love my nieces and nephews. It makes my heart happy that we all live in Florence and the cousins are so close. Just yesterday we were all at the park and they were all running around like wild little monkeys…I just love it. I have to say that I think Mak and Tess are the wildest in the bunch. When Mak was her age he was on his second Emergency Room visit. Tess has only had one, but it was a DOOZY of one! Girlfriend has no fear. She confidently climbs to the heights that she sees her big brother and cousins climbing. She’s absolutely sure that she can do it too. And she’s also quite good at letting you know how she feels when you remove her from those precarious situations that she places herself in. She is in my very favorite stage of early childhood. She’s learning to talk in complete sentences, learning to do so many new things each day and that personality comes out more and more all the time. Tess, we love you, Chicky! You make our family more fun by being in it. Hugs and kisses, Sweet Girl!
