She also left nursery and started going to Primary at church. My little Sunbeam is full of energy and loves to give talks or say prayers. Sometimes she has difficulty sitting still or paying attention, but she's slowly getting better and her hilarity mostly makes up for it.
Calista is slowly learning the right way to deal with frustration and anger, and I am so proud of her for the progress she has made this last year.
Craig is one of her favorite people... most of the time. She has declared that she is a princess, and he is her prince. They are getting along really well most of the time, and it is so nice to watch them play together, and funny to find him in his crib with an apple (hmm, he can't get out, so how did it get in...?), and I love them both more than I can say.
One of my favorite things she does is make up silly songs and stories. Often the songs will just be narrating her current actions ("I am picking up my to-oys!") but they are funny nonetheless. Her stories mostly are about dragons, monsters, dinosaurs, or adventures (or a combination of all of them!).
Calista also loves to dance, and learns new moves all the time like "wiggle your hips, wiggle your hips." She will be taking a littler ballerinas class in the fall, and she is so excited.
Calista often loves to help, especially when I am baking. She thinks it's fantastic to measure and pour the ingredients into the bowl, and only sometimes makes a larger mess than I would make on my own.
The vast majority of the time, I am in awe of this little girl. She is smart, sweet, loving, an amazing older sister, beautiful, strong, wonderful, and a great example to me. Calista has grown so much in the last year. I can't believe she is four already.

Thank you for the last four years, my not-baby girl!
