Her speech is really taking off. She actually sounds like she is trying to carry on a conversation sometimes (although much of it is still unintelligible) and she has recently started to say her own name. Some of my favorite things that she says: "cookoo" for cookie, "nuk" for drink, and "baka" (we don't have a clue what it means, but she says it all the time!).

Her favorite book and song is Wheels on the Bus. She'll wave her arm in the air (trying to do the hand motions to the song) to request it. She also LOVES to look at magazines (any kind will do). She likes to point out all of the pictures of dogs, shoes and babies.
Lately she is really enjoying our play kitchen and the big doll house that Nonna and Zaidy brought to her and Calder during their last visit. There is a tiny baby doll that goes along with the doll house, and she loves putting "baby" into his high chair to eat and into his cradle for "night night". It's very cute! She's also showing an increased interest in her babydolls.
She can throw a temper tantrum like a professional 2-year old. But, she is also probably the most polite toddler I have ever known! If you give her something, she will thank you ten times over. Gotta love that!
