Meet Jacinta!

Jacinta is very sweet and caring, and she takes things very seriously when given an important task to do. However, she can be a bit of a smart aleck and sometimes likes to see if there are any shortcuts to take. Jacinta is very playful and energetic and hates going to bed on time. There's always something to do! She loves to paint, draw, color, read, tell knock-knock jokes (although they usually don't make much sense), run in circles, write silly songs...the list is endless! But if you sing her a lullaby, she will fall fast asleep!

Meet Emilia!

Emilia loves the outdoors and is very playful. She is also very sensitive and wise and can be quite determined when she puts her mind to it. Emilia likes playing with hula-hoops and jump ropes. Her favorite month is August. One of Emilia's favorite things to do when she needs to relax is to lie on the grass outside and look at the clouds.

Tina hates water. She thinks that it tastes gross. She would much rather drink coffee. You’ll need to make sure she drinks enough water.

Skyler is not a Twilight fan though. She doesn't think vampires should sparkle. (I teased her about this when I saw she had glitter all over her and she didn't find it at all funny)

Skyler really likes Mac and Cheese. I think it might partly have to do with it being orange, she really likes that color.
