Livi is FOUR

It's hard to describe in words how sassy this little girl is. She is so independent and stubborn. I just have no idea where she gets it from (it's me). She will straight up pretend like she doesn't hear you or answer with a "no, I don't want to do that" when you ask her to pick up her mess. She loves to smile and ask you if you are happy with her at the exact time her brother was put in time out.

She is very girly, but to a point. She loves to wear skirts, but not dresses. She loves her princesses, but doesn't have the patience to actually watch any princess movies. She loves to sing. Oh, how she loves to sing. She is always singing. She will sing the classics just as much as she will make up her own tunes. She is a big story teller too. Barbies and dolls are her favorite and she can spend hours making up stories in her room with her dolls. She has such charisma when she's making up these stories. She'll act it out with such conviction. I absolutely love it and I will be so sad when this phase is over.

She doesn't often offer a hug or snuggle like her brother, but when she does you relish it because it's so rare. She's becoming more of a fan of her dad than she ever was before. She's still a momma's girl but I can say that daddy is catching up. Liam and her have been playing together more lately. They still mostly drive each other crazy, but there are more times where they run around playing and make each other laugh. She thinks Liam is hilarous.

I know I don't have much longer with this little girl. She's already starting to drift into little person who "doesn't need her mommy" territory so I am trying with all my heart to enjoy every single moment.
