Our Big Girl

Lately Penny seems to have just gotten so much older.  She can do so many things now and understands most of what we say.

SO BIG- she went outside and shut the door.  But then she couldn't figure out how to get back in.

She can say so many things now, it seems like she gets a new word or phrase everyday.  Today she said, "Help, please."  Some of our favorites are: "Readyyyy, Go!" and "Cupcake".  Some of her favorites are "Ca ca" (quack quack, she LOVES ducks), "Cra cra" (cracker) and "No!".

She loves to help.  If I am doing the dishes, cooking, cleaning, etc. she has to be up there doing it with me.

She loves other people.  She waves and says "Hi!" to random people we see on the street.

She gives kisses now, but for some reason will only give them to Mommy.  I think rejecting Daddy has turned into a fun game.  Last night she was being so silly, she put her hands on either side of my face and was trying to kiss me (open-mouthed) on my mouth.  She thought it was hilarious.


This is my FAVORITE age (so far).  I love that she can do so many things on her own now and can keep herself entertained for so long.  But the thing that I absolutely love the most about this new age is that she has learned to care and sympathize.  Last night I had a killer headache so I was laying in bed with my eyes covered.  Penny was so concerned, she kept coming over to me and tapping me, or laying her head down on me.  We love that kid!

I have to agree that this is a fun age. I love how AJ and Penny react to eachother these days.
