The Little Miracle Baby?
Well not anymore. No she is no longer a little miracle baby. She is a miracle toddler! I pretty much stay in denial. She of course will always be my baby but she is so big. I turned on my web cam and she climbed up next to me and hammed it up for the camera. She smiled and waved and kissed me. She is such a sweetheart. She talks so much now. She seems to learn 10 new words a day! She also has learned to recognize some words in a book or at least relating things to words. What I mean is she has a book. There are colors on each page and objects that show that color. I tell her to find red and she can do it each time. I find this wonderful for 20 months. I have also taught her that her sippy cup says dad. It says "I love dad" to be precise but each time I ask her what it says she states "dad" or "dadda". I believe she is just repeating what I told her but the memory alone has me impressed. Of course she is my little lady and so I am incredibly biased but I see such intelligence in this little miracle lady. She is still slightly follicly challenged. Or that is what I call it anyway. haha She has hair. It's a reddish blonde color that I love. She just doesn't have quite enough to get into a cute ponytail. I figured that it's for the best. With her personality she'd just yank it out and eat it anyway.
As I wrote this she very nearly succeeded in putting a cheerio in my coffee. Score one for mom for getting the cup back fast enough.
