Big Girl

Helping Mom with the mopping.....
Scarlett always gestures for me to let her outside on the front landing. Even when it's freezing, she loves to shiver and dance around for a minute on the cold cement. For some reason, she thinks it's delightful.
Enjoying the playground on the first semi-warm day in what feels like years...(maybe a little dramatic).

Rockin' out with Dad's Skull Candy headphones.....just her size.
She's quite accomplished at feeding herself with spoon and fork these days. Just enjoying a yogurt with Daddy.
Having fun at Kangaroo Zoo with her friend Taylor Williams.

Scarlett is growing up fast. Currently she's having a language explosion and is using words more and more often to communicate in place of gesturing. I'm finding it much easier to decipher what it is she wants. She is starting to combine words such as "Uh-oh Binkie, " when she drops her pacifier (yes, she is still using one and is fiercely attached to it, don't judge:) ) Or, "Buh-bye Daddy," etc. She's learning lots of animal sounds, body parts, etc. I'm constantly labeling things for her because I like to hear how it comes out of her mouth. Sometimes we get creative things like, "Su-Su," which she uses consistently for "cereal."
Micah and I are loving the toddler stage and find it exciting to see what she is going to learn each day. We adore this little girl and think it is so fun to teach her new skills and help her explore the world around her.
