Melissa Amber Seals
At 3½ years old, Melissa was giving her brother a run for his money. Many of the things he learned, she picked up. She attended preschool with other 3 year olds at a local church twice a week. Her fears had progressed to include the dark and many flying bugs (flies, bees, wasps - but she loves butterflies). Her favorite characters were Clifford, the Disney Princesses and Scooby Doo.
Like her brother, she was tall and skinny and even wore a few of his hand me downs (sweatpants and jeans) because she was hard to find pants for too! She was only 4 pounds and 4 inches smaller than her brother.
She was very attached to Aaron, and the first question she asked on his school days is "Where's Aaron?" But she wasn't so attached that she didn't enjoy having the house to herself!
She really enjoyed our summer vacation to Idaho. She claimed that Uncle Nate was her best friend (only because of Bosco!).
