Me and Me

As it turns out, I am the Mom, to, ME! Vienna is me all over! I think she may be smarter, and possibly cuter, but none the less she is me. This could be a really good thing (after all I'm not half bad), but I think it may drive me insane! Last night I spoke with a friend of mine, and I was trying to analyze what might be 'going on' with Vienna and causing her recent behavior? My friend suggested, that maybe I just had a 'Spirited' child. Perhaps this is true. I have been known to be 'spirited' about a thing or two.
Truly though I quite like that Vienna is SO much like me. I love that she is feisty, fearless, and such a girly girl! Vienna is bright and I think her freckles (which I never had) are just about the most scrumptious thing to adorn her face! Those big Brown eyes are right up there too!
Vienna is one of those girls that wants to keep up with the boys and all that tough fun, but do it in a girly get up! She would love to hunt with her Dad when she is older, but she wants a pink gun! Vienna's favorite outfit right now is her yellow ruffle bathingsuit, or maybe her ballet outfit, or really any dress, with tights preferably.
Vienna loves to Write! She is really enjoying reading some easy reader books, she is taking some beginner dance lessons. Vienna really enjoys her one on one time right now and quite frankly doesn't seem to be able to live without it at the moment. Vienna is sensitive, and concerned for others, especially her brothers. Vienna loves her long hair and still has her glasses (even though she doesn't have them on in these pics).
Vienna is highly emotional! All the girl that I need! I am still learning how to role with the ups and downs of this little girls world. But I hope to get it right. I really hope that I can figure out what makes this little girl tick so I can enjoy my only girl, through all the teen years and everything in between. I love this sweet, complicated little girl.
'Little Miss' is her current nick name. Vienna is such a great big sister. And I am pretty sure she is Evan's best friend. Those to are just the cat and jammer kids. I love watching all of my kids interact, but Evan and Vienna together are something special!
Vienna can be briefly shy, but mostly she is VERY sociable, and willing to be a friend. Vienna, you are 2 in a million, since your me! I love you so much. I love your company. We'll figure out how to make sure you always love me too! You are the cutest 4 year old ever!!!

Vienna really is a sweetheart. I love her in my primary class. (if we could only get her to come willingly!!)

LOL She's even more You than You were, Baby Girl!
As far as I'm concerned that makes you one lucky Mom! I love that Vienna is teaching you and I so much.
Wish that we had had a camera for the fond freak-out farewell out at the bus stop, it captures Evan and Vienna's closeness perfectly. She is a loving little girl.
You two are a perfect match!

She's so cute. I loooove her freckles too. For future reference, if things get too "heated" in her teen years, Vienna is always welcome to spend the weekend with us to cool down. I had a cousin who would stay with us (I was too young to really remember) and it was a good thing.
Love ya!

I loved this post. As you now I'm crazy about Vienna! I'm so happy that I get to be one of her adoring Aunties. I love that she is so you, it's a real treat to catch that glimpse of what you were like as a child. She's gorgeous inside and out, and so are you!

I honestly love that she's such a tender child, she's just beautiful. I'm DYING to see her at dance class (please take pics). One of the greatest things about coming home to visit is getting my hugs from Vienna! I'm with Katie, if you ever need to send her for a cool down in her teens my house is always open too! :) (although we'll likely spend any time that she would be here shopping and doing girly stuff!).

You're a wonderful loving Mom.

Adorable photos! What precious children you have! I have five granddaughters and three grandsons and it's amazing that one of my granddaughters looks so much like me at THAT age...I can even see it!

I love Vienna! She's been so fun to get to know this year. I'll miss all the funny things she says to liven up the car ride! And not surprisingly very cute pics too!!!
