When people ask me what my favorite color is I always say yellow. Why yellow? Well, because it reminds me of the sun, and sunshine makes me happy. Wavery Skellie, however, chooses all colors when asked about her favorite. “Like a rainbow,” she admitted, it’s simply too hard for her to decide on just one color. Kind of like her personality—it is simply too hard to say just one thing about this girl.
Six years old and going into the first grade, miss Waverly is our first “little” of the month! And what an exciting journey it has been getting to know this bundle of sass. If you are fortunate enough to know her you also know how funny she is. Her mom, Brooke Skellie, acknowledged some of Waverly’s truest features to be joyful, loving, and very free spirited. Oh, and sassy… always sassy.
With big brown eyes and dirty blonde hair, Waverly Skellie never fails to light up a room with her smile. “That’s one thing all of her teachers say about her,” Brooke confessed, “she is always happy and always smiling.” I must agree, after just the short time I spent with little miss Waverly it was apparent what a joy she is. It’s a special quality to possess—being able to make others smile, even when they might not feel like it. It’s contagious when you see those missing teeth and eyes squint as her face develops into a huge grin.
During our interview Waverly told me some of her favorite things. Aside from her favorite color being endless shades of the rainbow, her favorite movie is The Little Mermaid and her hobbies include riding horses, gymnastics, swimming, and playing with her little brother, Rowan. When I asked about her favorite memory doing one of the things she loves she painted a detailed picture of her and tater tot (a horse, not a food) trail riding and going on a hike. When she gets her wish you can find Waverly on the beach; in her favorite vacation spot eating her favorite foods which consist of pizza and candy, specifically airheads.
Since ‘back to school’ time is approaching I thought I would see what Waverly looks forward to as she starts the first grade. In Kindergarten her favorite thing was rest time, followed by group work and art class. She also told me about a game she learned called Heads-Up 7-Up. Her favorite memory of Kindergarten, though, would have to be the end of the year field day where she enjoyed not one, but two snow cones. As the days of summer come to a close we hope that Waverly will have just as much fun this school year as she did the last!
As a previous model for some of the B.little merchandise we were not surprised to learn that Waverly’s favorite thing about the new store is trying on clothes. This girl is quite the fashionista. She loves to pick out her own outfits and model her choice of styles. At the end of our interview Waverly was asked to pick her favorite outfit in the store. Without hesitation she selected the ‘sassy’ graphic tee, pom pom shorts, and a matching headband— completing her ensemble. What a doll, right?
