April...April...

This is what I hear on the baby monitor in the morning now. April...April...Mommy...Mommy...Dada...Dada. We're not 100% sure Em really knows who April is, because when we asked her today, she pointed to Keith and then herself. She is just a bundle of giggles lately, with a few tantrums thrown in for good measure. She throws her hands over her mouth when she giggles, and it just cracks me up. She is exploding with new words all the time. This week, we were at our peak of Fall color, and as we were driving down a particularly colorful road, she pointed out the window and said "yaw-wo!" (yellow). It took me a moment to figure out what she was saying, but I was impressed once it clicked! She's very into Mr. Potato Head, and loves to read books. Coloring and helping empty the dishwasher are very big right now too. She gets a big smile on her face when she helps us around the house, and we like that she's willing to do it (for now!).

That kid just keeps moving forward, and it's so much fun to read about it..must be wonderful to "see" it all happening.
What fun for you two!
