Here she is in November: Here she is today:
While I realize this is a publicly viewed blog, please know that my goal is to capture and record her milestones, not to brag about her accomplishments.
Her verbal skills have grown by leaps and bounds. When she is comfortable, she is just a chatty cathy..though in a group, she tends to hang back a bit until she is comfortable. She still loves playing by herself, especially with her little figurine animals or her Micky & Pooh bear figures.
- If you ask her who her favorite Red Sox player is, she'll promptly respond: Saltalamacchia.
- She also knows how to spell her name & how to spell Mickey Mouse (with a little MI...prompting).
- She's all over counting (she can make it up to 30 - thank you Whole Foods for all thost steps to count!)
- Her favorite song is "Twinkle Twinkle" which we sing to her at bedtime every night. (Sidenote, there is a mysterious 2nd verse that one of her books has pointed out..we're working on learning it).
She has taken the corner on walking distances too - she can walk close to a mile now - and walking is usually comprised of a combination run and stutter step. The one thing I love is that she always stops to smell the flowers.
Our little girl is growing up - a healthy balance of smart, silly, happy tom boy and girly girl!
