So I just have to share my new favorite thing . . . mommy’s long lasting maybeline lipstick – this stuff really does last all day. I applied it in the car on the way to a lunch play date at Chick-fil-a and it stayed on even after bath – mommy had to rub some lotion all over my face to finally get it off. It was great!

I am also fond of the sandbox, although I still don’t understand how to wipe my mouth without eating more sand. I also love to walk around with pens and paper – ready to work on a moments notice. I have recently discovered crayons and love to hold them wherever I go. I am learning that they are not as tasty as pens. Today I swung, played in the sandbox, and went down the slide without losing or breaking my crayon. Mommy was impressed.

This week I am really working on the concept that mama is in fact my mommy and not just a general term for everything I want. Mommy keeps try to teach me that I am in fact Katie, but that seems a bit much. I know several animal sounds (meow, grrr, moo, bark, quack) and that Daddy says “no no no”. I can also say dada, mama, and Gant (and will yell this often throughout the day). I can say “no” when Grant is bothering me and “no no no” when Mommy tells me not to touch something. Oh and I can say my favorite foods “cacker” (cracker or better yet, cookie), “cheese”, and “fish” (goldfish).
All in all life is pretty good. I did end up getting 2 new molars after Aunt Jean visited – and perhaps a few more are coming. I am drinking only from cups now and I sleep through the night almost all the time. Mommy is really happy about that (although I do wake up at 6am). See you soon!
