Just a couple random things happening around these parts.
Sydney got a few (small!) presents because I can’t help myself at the Target Dollar Spot. She was really excited to see the presents on the table and was even more excited when they were for her (because we recently celebrated my Dad’s birthday and while she got to help open presents they weren’t for her and I don’t think she understood what that was all about).
I wish I had actually captured her face straight on because it was really cute. I love her excited face. And she’s this excited over a book. I love that even more. I am pretty excited that we’re raising a reader – we’re pretty much all readers and we read to her a lot so it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that she likes to read, but it is a welcomed one. She even asks to go to bed with books and will “read” them to herself after we leave the room. Since we read some of the same books over and over again at night she seems to have a couple words memorized and she will say random words from the book as she flips the pages (though I don’t know if she has the pages correct because I can’t see the pages on the monitor).
She’s been starting to play games with us. It’s really cute. She loves to hide – mostly she will hid under a blanket or just behind her hands waiting for us to ask “Where’s Sydney” and then she will reveal herself and laugh at all the excitement that happens when she is found. She also likes for us to hide and she goes “uh oh, where mommy” getting equally as excited when we are “found.” I am really loving this toddler playing stage of life right now.
I just love her and that cheese face.
