my granddaughter emilia is 47 months old today - that's one month short of her 4th birthday!
here she is "reading" from one of her pixie books. she likes being read to and then to repeat what she has heard for her cuddly toys ...

happy birthday, little mouse !

A cute portrait of her reading. Our grandson, Alex, likes to "read" along as you read to him. Those four year olds have great memories. ;-)

@Steve Rice: thanks, steve! i marvel at their memory! she sings along to her favourite children's songs, at least 20 of them, knowing all the lyrics (though i'm not sure she also understands them ... ;-), and she "reads" to her cuddly toys, quoting whole passages from the books! what a wonderful thing to watch !!!

Looks like a Jillian Jiggs story. Nice shot of a quiet bedtime moment.

Amazing that next month she will turn four! These special years are fleeting, however watching their development is magical no matter the age. Our eldest will be doing a month-long pediatric clinical rotation in Tanzania at year's end, as part of her medical residency. Seems like yesterday that SHE was four. ;D

@Judy aka L@dybug: oh yes .... even these last four years seem to have flown by in no time! the best of luck and a safe return to dr. bridget! what a courageous act to be going to tanzania!
