8 years ago today....

On this day, 8 years ago, Super was born. Now, we didn't always call her Super. The name sort of evolved.

When she was just teeny, we called her Roo- you know like Kanga and little Roo. We called Loo "Pooh Bear", so we thought a name from Winnie the Pooh would be fitting for her as well.

From Roo, came Rooty Tooty

Pookey came shortly thereafter and sometimes we shortened that nickname to Pook. The girls still call her Pook. I think they always will.

Smash was the next name she had, then from that evolved Super Smash. She couldn't say Smash very well, so we started calling her Mash. Then of course, we had to change it to Mash Potato. But Super Smash was always kind of lingering around, just waiting to be used again. And then, finally, the name Super came along. These days, I'm calling her Supe for short.

Occasionally, she might get a seasonal nickname like Sweet Pea or Pumpkin Pie.

Here's some more super facts about Super:

Her favorite colors are blue and black. (she just informed me of that) Yesterday, they were lime green and purple.

She knows where everything is. Can't find something, ask her. She has an iron-clad memory.

She loves to sing, dance, play the drums, do gymnastics, and swim (but she won't take swimming lessons)

She's the best cleaner out of all the kids! Her favorite chores are cleaning the windows and mirrors and vacuuming.

She thrives in a routine. I think that's why she does so well in school. She is very particular about getting her planner signed and doing her homework. Math is her favorite subject.

She hates taking medicine. (wonder where that comes from? me.)

Her favorite songs are Livin' on a Prayer by Bon Jovi, The Kill by 30 Seconds to Mars, That's What You Get by Paramore, and It's a Jolly Holiday by me. I have to sing that to her every night before she goes to sleep. She calls it her lullaby.

Her favorite movies are Wall-e, and all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
Her favorite TV shows are Heroes, My Name is Earl, and Little House on the Prairie.

She loves rainbow chip cake and bubble gum ice cream.

Her favorite place to eat is Subway.

Happy Birthday Sweetie! I love you!

Wow, and I thought I had a lot of nicknames! HAPPY BIRTHDAY "SUPER!"

It has been fun looking at all of these pictures of her. She is so adorable. So photogenic! I love how many pictures you have of her in Disneyland. The ones with her dressed up with the princesses are my very favorite!

I can't believe how quickly she is growing up. We think that she is such a wonderful and sweet girl. I had no idea that she enjoyed doing chores so much. You are lucky Brandi!
