Michelle's Update

Michelle is super busy these days. We have been working hard on using our words, and Michelle is doing great! If you ask her, "What does that cow say?" she'll reply "mooo". She also knows that the sheep says "ba", the lion says "roar", the puppy says "ruff, ruff, ruff" and as for the pig, well he grunts! When she wants something she will say "Please", which, by the way, melts my heart! I have a very hard time saying no to anything she wants when she looks up at me so sweetly raises her little hand and in her small little voice asks, "Please?" She also knows how to say "no, no, no." but I don't think she fully understands what it means. Or if she does understand then she is a lot smarter then we thought! She always says "night, night" at bed time, and "hi" when someone walks in the door. She's just so stinking smart it kills me! Oh, and if you ask her: "Michelle, are you a baby wookie?" She'll make the noise (baby girl version, of course) that Chewbacca makes from Star Wars! Daddy taught her that one.

Michelle is getting so fun to dress up! She'll be very patient while I try a bunch of different outfits on her. She will usually make it to outfit number four before she starts protesting. And thanks to her grandparents and a Daddy that lets her Mommy go shopping for her, she has lots of clothes to go through!

OH- and just a word of warning: Michelle will sit with me and blog stalk after she wakes up from her nap. She usually finds one or two pictures that she just has to keep looking at so we have put together a book for her. You may notice, in the picture above, that the two photos she is looking at are from my sisters blog. So, we are no longer just blog stalkers, we are also photo stealers... sorry!

Michelle is her fathers daughter! Every morning she gets something to eat, gets comfortable and watches TV until she feels awake enough to play. She normally does this with a bagel, waffle, or cereal, but Daddy was home and made an executive decision to allow a box of raisins for breakfast! And it's always the same shows: Clifford, then her favorite, Dragon Tales, and if she's still interested after that Curious George.

She had her very first pedicure the other day. She did a great job of picking her color, sitting in daddy's lap and holding very still while I painted her toes. After she was all done she helped me blow on them so they would dry faster and then walked all around the hose showing everyone her "pretty piggies"!

Michelle is still a big reader. Her Aunt Jessica made a book box for her that she uses every day! She will sit a read for a long time, and then bring me a book or two to read to her. Love this girl!
