  • wears size 4 diapers
  • wears mostly size 18 months clothes
  • wears size 5 shoes
  • has 12 teeth
  • is getting better at using a fork and spoon to eat
  • can identify lots of items in books
  • makes faces like she is confused or mad
  • wears her hair in a ponytail most of the time and is much better about keeping in bows
  • can follow simple instructions like go sit in your chair or put that in the basket
  • has added “wa-wa” (water), “baby”, “shoes”, and “banana” to her vocabulary
  • likes: closing doors, reading books, pushing buttons, baths in the big tub

We’ve shared the good news with Piper that she is going to be a big sister. Although I don’t think she knows what is going on, when I ask her where the baby is, she is able to point to my belly and say “baby”. Only on occasion now does she point to her own belly.
