Zellie at 5 years old

Earlier today, I had something on my mind I wanted to write about you, but as of right now I cannot remember what it was.  So for now, I just want to write how sweet you are at this age.  I can tell you are watching everything around you.  You are doing so well in school and are such an eager little learner.  I call you the Geography Whiz and your skills in remembering world geography is quite remarkable.  I can tell it makes you proud when I act shocked each day how fast you ramble of the countries, continents, oceans, and other landmarks.  Today, you attempted for about 30 minutes to teach Vianney and Clairvaux how to play the piano.  I heard my voice and your piano teacher's voice during the lesson.  You still love lip gloss like no tomorrow and out of all my girls you are the one most attentive to your appearance usually being the first in the shower in the morning.
You are quite social and are always the most sought after child by our house guests.  When we traveled to Kentucky, all the older "little" girls enjoyed pretending you were their little sister.  They carried you around and just doted upon you.  You gloated in your fame.  I enjoyed the time I had with you as the youngest child on our trip.  We sat next to each other on the plane and I let you take pictures with the camera.  
Your nicknames right now are Zip, Zipper, Big Z, Zippity-do-Dah, Zip-Zip-Zippy, and Beans to name a few.
