I have been writing down funny things you say in a little journal! It's fun to look back and read it!  A couple of our favorites, "you wanna see my butt?" "Shakin my booty" "Dance a me?" "Do you want to see my bed?" (She is proud of her big girl bed) You love everyone and you love to include others you are always saying "come on" and taking your friends by the hand wanting them to play with you! You are really smart and really mature for a 2 year old. Sometimes what you say and what you understand is a little scary! We have been working on going in the potty, but you keep talking me," I like my diaper.." Soo we will keep trying. You are a super independent little gal, and we love watching you learn to do things on your own!
