Other New Tricks: She sings and loves it. Most often we hear 'dinosaur train theme' and 'yo ho pirate's life.' She also dances all the time. She's started asking for kisses on her boo-boos. She also does 'noggin,' from Finding Nemo, to be featured in the next post. :)
What's next: learning more words, traveling to Walt DisneyWorld to see Aunt Meggie in May, nursery in TWO MONTHS!
How she drives us crazy: She's inherited the stubborness. Grr. She's also hard at church... it's the 12-18 month range... I'm counting down the days.
Why she's so awesome: She's so cute. She loves to help and follow Jared; she'd follow him anywhere. The two of them are so funny together and she doesn't put up with his non-gentle ways. She'll get up from almost any fall. She already says so much and has such a fun personality. She absolutely loves to read and will go upstairs to play alone, if no one is up there.
