As of Today

... took her first shower. She used to not like to get her hair and face wet, so this is a big deal.
... eats pasta. Also impressive because she turned her nose up at it for about a year. She even tried two bites of eggs the other day. That didn't go quite as well.
... wants to sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper on her food. When she does, the sprinkles it in little circle motions.
... can draw faces now.
... thinks WALL-E is the center of the universe. It is almost all she talks about.
... likes to watch her Daddy play solitare on the computer. She wants him to win so she can watch all the cards bounce. She tells him all sorts of encouraging things like, "You can do it, Daddy!" and "You're doing a great job." She's quite the cheerleader.
... loves to wear dresses, necklaces, bracelets, and anything else resembling jewelry. "It makes me beautiful!"
... likes to build castles with blocks.
... calls all paper money "fifty dollars". Speaking of money, she likes it... she'll clean up all sorts of stuff for a quarter. Oh, and she likes to clean (as a result of hanging out with my mother-in-law, not me, I assure you).
... can count to 14.
... can spell Mickey Mouse, but not really Harper yet. (Sad, but true.)
... can sing the ABCs, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Jingle Bells, You are My Sunshine, and some of Puff the Magic Dragon.

We are so beautiful!

We're having lots of dress up time here lately! All about the sparkles and pink. And thanks to our friend Yvonne, even high heels now!
