Melissa Amber Seals
At 4½ years old, Melissa continued to be a handful. She continued to love "girl stuff" such as My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, stickers and dress up.
We got a chance to go out to California for cousin Connor's first birthday. We visited Adventure City, Knott's Soak City, Newport Beach, Ventura and Disneyland/California Adventure (THANKS, AUNT KAREN!).
Since pictures can be worth a thousand words, we'll get right to them. This batch really captured her personality:
