I have been really loving this age with our girl. She has this incredible personality and we often look at eachother and say, "where did that come from?" in relation to a funny response she has or a silly thing she says. One of my favorite stories as of late has been Aron catching her talking to herself in her full-length closet mirror telling herself to, "Obey" over and over again. This is a key phrase we use with her as we are training her heart. Too sweet! She also often attempts to share her sippy cup with her mirror image (something I once did with my orange juice when I was a child, except it was to my shadow and there was no lid on!). She loves to read our theological books and often can be found sitting in front of the bookshelf, flipping from cover to cover multiple time. In fact this week, she insisted I, "Read book," and procured some Francis Schaffer and Jonathan Edwards, to which I obliged and read a paragraph or so of each, to which she quietly listened. Amazing! :) Lots of things are "silly" to her these days, including "silly dada," "silly mama," and "silly Maggie." We have taught her to "rock out" in the car to music and she is working on throwing out her rock n roll sign with her fingers, though for now, it's only holding up the index finger. She also can, believe it or not, sing "do, ra, me, fa, so, la, ti, do." On several occasions she has perfectly done it out of the blue! Mostly, it's just a few notes on the scale, but still, it's delightful!
