Other New Tricks:  She's got her 1-20 numbers down and recognizes some letters.  She also can draw a circle.  She's really good at saying her prayers and reminds us if we forget to bless 'baby L.'  She's mostly potty-trained.  I say 'mostly' because she understands when and how it feels like to go, she just still had problems with number #2.  70/30 ratio of the days she decides to use her naptime pull-up to do that business.  She LOVES to pretend-play with Jared now.  I constantly here them talking about cooking, going the store, getting married... (I blame the summer wedding for that idea).  She still loves her big girl bed and stays in it... usually.
What's next: Going to Seattle next month. Cementing Potty Training and working on more letters and numbers....
How she drives us crazy: Stubborn. Stubborn. Stubborn... I mean 'strong-willed.'  Her being stubborn is not necessarily a bad thing; it's just the thing that tests my Mommy patience the most.  She is a very independent, 'must-do-my-own-way' soul, so it's hard to teach her when she wants to 'do it her own.'  It's also the reason why she has so many bumps and bruises--- she's so daring.  Her naptime pooping thing is kind of crazy-driving right now, I just hope it doesn't last too long.
Why she's so awesome: Same reason she drives us crazy.  Her independent nature allows her to learn and grow so much.  That's why the post title says 'two turning twenty.'  She wants to do everything Jared does already and everything we do; she has told me numerous times that she's getting bigger and learning.  I know, baby, I know.  She's always concerned about her brothers.  I say brotherS because she is the one that rubs my belly the most and tells me "L is in there and he's sleeping."  She also says goodnight to him fairly regularly.  She's so spunky and her laugh is infectious.  She LOVES to make up jokes and laugh at them until everyone else laughs to.  She's also very considerate of her friends; every day she asks how they are and tells me how she loves to play with them.

We are so grateful for our little Annabellie-button.
