She plays more by herself and comes up with inventive ways to do so. She has long golden hair that we try to keep out of her face with bows and headband, but it is still a bit wild. I love it. She loves to listen to us reading books --- I think she would do this for hours if nothing else was going on. She still loves to sing and take care of her babies. Playing "Rosy" with whomever is interested has been her go-to game this month. She is far more interested in coloring, painting and craftiness than B was at this age (or is now).
She is brave and completely willing to set out on her own. For example, this weekend, she was the first kid to feel ready and confident about taking a canoe ride (also the youngest of those involved). She also rode a pony for the first time this month and handled it pretty well.
She is bright, happy, confident and loving as well as truly adorable. She definitely tests her boundaries and our patience too, but that is quickly followed by one of the big cute grins that melt us. We love you ladybug and are so excited to see what adventures you will take us on!
