At 27 months

* Bug's now calling us Mommy and Daddy. I'm not sure how or why the transition from Mama and Dada ocurred, but I like it. When the Grands came to visit, she changed their names to Nanny and Dad-G (instead of G-Dad.)

* She's learned numbers 1 through 10 and is counting. She loves to practice on her toes or with the contents of my makeup bag.

* Her new favorite show is Blue's Clues...she's fascinated by Steve carrying on a conversation with her. We also hear the word notebook quite often.

* The language and multiple words continue to flourish. She's using her words to tell us what she wants now. She will also look for us while shouting our sounds like "Dadeeeee."

* I'm seeing a lot of roleplaying in her playtime. Feeding and putting her baby doll down for a nap, pouring tea and "drinking" from her teacup, and sitting with her dolls at the little table sharing play food.

* She's an expert on the i-pad from turning it on and navigating to her games. I'm amazed at how quickly she learns to play and at how it's helping her learn. Our current favorite aps are Kids Animal Match Up and Toddler Toy Factory.

* Her love of the water continues this summer! She has little fear and the other day I watched her wade out from the kiddy area until the water reached her chin...yikes.

* Bug's height and weight haven't changed since last month but she's finally starting to lose that little tummy pudge. Wearing size 3 diapers...leftover size 2 swimmers and size 4.5 shoes. Clothes are still a mixture of 18-24 months.

* Her hair is long enough for a single pony tail!

I look forward to the monthly updates. Bug just gets prettier and more precious each day. I do thank God for this precious child he has given to you and T.

I just can't imagine how she is getting older. It seems like such a short time ago that we got our precious "bug" Love the updates on what she is doing. Love Mimi
