When Alison throws a dance party you jump at the tickets, go, and grab your best dance pal (aka my sister) We drank free Sodalicious, snacked on candies, snapped photos in photo booth, and danced the night away. It was only for a few hours just to let loose and shake out all our mommy troubles away. Thanks Alison for another great night! You sure know how to throw a "sweet" party.

-You talk so clearly. Right now it's just one word phrases but you won't say it unless it's perfect. You even separate syllables like "Pa Pa"
-You are also signing lots which always makes me happy
-You like throwing and kicking balls
-The best giggles come out when you're playing chase with Myer
-You say all the names in our family and our extended family and you repeat it over and over
-You love love books and could sit on my lap and read all day
-I upset you when I get ready in the morning and you try to move my legs back to the floor so you can sit on my lap and suck your thumb
-"Huck" or hug is your favorite word and you smother Myer all day long with your big hugs that take him to the floor
-You just started eating with a fork and it excites you at mealtime. You squeal each time
-Aside from eating, you love walks outside. "Out-sigh?" and "bike?"
-If you want a snack you try to get me stand up and then you watch me to make sure I follow you to the kitchen
-You like figuring stuff out--how lids go on, how to open and close things, what fits into cups, etc. and you keep at it until you figure it out
-First Sunday at Nursery went too well. You ran right into the toys and after the two hours you were kinda sad to see me
-"Hi!!" to everyone you see, especially kids, also followed by a "bye bye" with a big wave of your hand
-You are just as active as Myer at this age which was a big surprise-- always climbing, moving, and walking
-I would describe your personality as determined, focused, observant, playful, and tender (so kinda like me)
This sweet little thing that born 18 months ago changed into a busy beautiful toddler girl that I just can't keep up with. You want to be just like Myer and play what he is playing, wear what he is wearing, and do what he is doing. It gets my mommy heart right in the mushy center. And your sweet tender side that wants to cuddle right after naps, and stroke my hair, and kiss my lips gets all the rest of my heart. I sure love you Lenni,

You two: love to hug
You two: like to play chase
You two: like the exact same bear. And it causes problems.
You two: play soccer together outside. I die.
You two: like to greet each other after the afternoon nap
You two: share your toast
You two: have a race to the door to greet Daddy from work
You two: wrestle on the bed
You two: last 5 minutes in the bathtub. Bummer.
You two: demand a walk each afternoon
You two: are best buddies
You two: couldn't look more different and act different, but you love each other so much
I love you two!

Since Jake and Myer were on a jeeping trip, I felt it was my duty to show Lennon what a Girl's Trip looked like. So I took her up to City Creek Center and shopped till we dropped, ate till we were full, and ran around the creek till we literally got wet.
She is my best shopping buddy.
