My little Mattie thinks that she is so much older than she really is! I don't know if its first child syndrome or what, but she loves to play with older children. I guess most of the kids she does play with are older than she is! Anyway, the other night I went to an Enrichment Activity, and since Matt was away on a trip, I got Alexis Jarvis and Rachel Berger to come over and watch Mattie. Mattie was very excited to have them over to play with her. She immediately took them into her room to show them her stuff. They got right down on the floor and started playing with her. I was finishing up getting my things together and I could hear them listening to the radio. Lexy asked Mattie if she liked the song that was on, and Mattie told her that she did, and then started singing. The song was "Clumsy" by Fergie, and of course Mattie didn't know the words, she just makes them up! I peaked in on them and Mattie was laying on the floor coloring with her feet in the air. I thought that it was so sweet. She's just one of big girls. Its times like these, that I really wish we lived closer to her girl cousins in San Diego or Boston (not to say that her boy cousins aren't fun!) Or better yet, she just needs a sibling to play with.
