I have just realised that I am remiss in posting about the girls a bit. I need to keep a record of what they are like at these ages.
She is definately our creative artist. She is dramatic, sensitive, passionate, strong, knows what she wants & where she is going, yet is always concerned with how other people are & including them. She is our little social butterfly. She will make something out of nothing. there is not a day that goes by that she is not rummaging through our recycle bin looking for something to make. This was quite a daily occurance in our family. Now she is at school I realise that we have to make time for her to still be creative!!! She says all they do is work work work at school. So some afternoons we just let her sit in her room & draw & she gets it out of her system. Quite funny really as her Dad & I really aren't dramatic people!!! We had said from a young age that she was due for an Oscar??!! In that though she has always been such a happy, lively, outgoing girl. We so want to foster in her an ability to just do what she wants in life. I do not want her waiting until she is my age & realising that she is an amazingly creative & awesome human being. She is amazingly intuitive as well & doesn't miss anything. I am always having to be careful with what comes out of my mouth as sometimes it is not so good coming from a 6 yr old. Keeps me on my toes everyday about the example & lifestyle that we are teaching them!!
She is so different yet amazing too. She likes order. She collects things. Any piece of shining, junkie piece of something, she will find & keep it as a treasure. She sees the beauty even in the things that aren't beautiful. She too is quite creative but in a different way. She doesn't need a lot of people to be happy, she likes what she likes & that is it!! Same goes with people, she is quite like her Daddy that way. She is definately the quietest of the three & maybe not so headstrong, but strong just the same. She is easily talked around if she is cranky. She does tend to go though from 0-100. She is very observant, intuitive & can get a little frustrated if you don't understand what she is trying to bring across. I know this is sometimes her age. They are growing up & yet still babies. She has an amazing dolphin kick & has walked on her toes since she started walking, but has no interest in ballet. She comes out with the funniest things & has an awesome dry sense of humour. I think actually she will be a lot like Nath (my bro) with a quick dry wit!! She has the ability to totally make you laugh, when she is meant to be getting into trouble. She is also quite a deep thinker.
well this shining little light & bundle of energy how can I describe her. She too is quite the comedian but is not shy!! She is probably a bit more like Georgie than Lulu but has an incredibly different personality again!!! She is really affectionate & you can actually reason with her. If you gently describe what she needs to do, she does it, but if you hit her head on, not pretty!!! LOL. She loves princess stuff & is totally obsessed with Disney princesses. Loves ah ah (ariel) as she calls it & dances around singing at the top of her voice. (all the girls actually are very musical). She is cheeky & thinks as she is the youngest she can get away with murder. Most people let the third get away with things but Ant & I are very strong with her as I think she could be a handful if we let her go. She too is quite dramatic but in a hilarious way. She is quite bossy & has the other two wrapped around her little finger. She is very independant (much to my sadness trying to hold on to my last baby) & constantly tells me I do it myself!! She will not go to sleep without one of us praying for her & if we forget she reminds us!!!
So much I could say about them, I am trying to remember to write down conversations we have with them that sometimes leave Ant & I rolling around laughing!!! One day Georgie asked me if God slept??? I said No Georgie.....he doesn't need to sleep!!!
well does he eat??? I said No Georgie he doesn't need to eat!!
She said, well Mummy that is very weird, he doesn't eat, he doesn't sleep. He must get very tired & very hungry!! & that was the end of that conversation. OOOOhhhh totally looking forward to the birds & the bees story!!! LOL
I am sometimes so awestruck with the incredible responsibility of raising these delightful girls. I sometimes think about if we had had more. I would have loved that experience for them & for us too. But I am totally thankful that God decided to give us 3 beautiful, incredible little humans to look after for this time on earth. I pray that I will do a job worthy of him saying Well Done Good & Faithful servant.
