Like father like daughter

Since Daddy's been around more, I've learned to "fix" cars with him since he's been doing a lot of that lately! I am also learning my cars. Thus far I can identify Prius, Porsche (all convertibles), mama car (all Audis and wagons), Jetta (all VWs), and BMW! I caught Daddy off guard when he pointed out a Mini Cooper, and I said "That's not a Mini, that's an Element." I've been told that this is a very important skill.

I'm Mommy

Daddy compares being with me to being with a drunk person! You can often hear me singing at the top of my lungs and running around acting silly. My favorite game is playing pretend. I love to play "I'm Mommy", so much so that I have worn the nursing pillow and tried to nurse Sebastian. (Mommy is now known as "Sebastian Mommy".) I can be quite bossy, telling my parents what role to play, such as insisting they "hit" me so that I can give them a timeout. I also hijack Mommy's nice bags and wear them out "shopping". Mommy was quite surprised when she opened one and found all my things: a Hello Kitty wallet, flowery pink sunglasses, toy keys, Dora watch, pretend rice, pretend shrimp, pink spoon, pretend credit card (Hilton Honors card), and sushi guide.

I also love "teaching", and taught Mommy my current favorite song "Twinkle Twinkle Traffic Light."

I get to ride the Big Train!

I got to ride the big Amtrak train which I've been lusting after for so long! We went "down by the station early in the morning" just like my current favorite song goes! Not only did Daddy and I take the train to Sacramento, but I also got to ride a stagecoach AND an 8 hitch wagon - both pulled by real horses, have juice and lots of junk food, sleep in a Thomas the Tank Engine bed, get a Dora the Explorer watch, the list goes on and on. Wow, what did I do to deserve all this? I hope that I figure it out so we can do this again!

Here's me, totally thrilled to be seeing the view from the train!

Later, a stagecoach!
