Her words and vocabulary have skyrocketed. John has taught her to say quantify and tonight Uncle Scott got her to say plethora. Not words a two year old says. But she also says normal words like mister moon and "I need the lion mommy!" She knows a few songs like twinkle, twinkle little star, the ABC's, I see the moon, the moon sees me. Today, as we were walking around the house waiting for Uncle Scott, she was singing the song my mom always sings when Myla comes in the door. "Who’s that knocking at my door..." She is also very loving, always giving us hugs or stroking our arms and backs or saying I love you. It’s very sweet when she does it unprompted - or anytime really. She's a very sweet little being.

Just for fun, we did an unofficial weigh and measure today. Its been a long time - since her two year old check up in October - that we've gotten stats. And not much has changed between then and now. She's still under 20 pounds but she has grown half an inch to 30.5. A flyer the doctor gave us said that they don't grow much between two and four, and she runs around A LOT, so we aren't concerned. Just amazed that she's still right there. I'm sure she has a growth spurt in her future. Probably right around the time she gets an Easter dress and then won't be able to wear it for Easter. Yeah, that sounds about right.
Tonight, after her bath, Myla was very concerned about her fingers. "What happened fingers Mommy?" she would ask. When I looked to see what was wrong, I couldn't tell what she was talking about. But she kept asking, so I looked again. Her fingers had become pruny from playing so long with rubber ducky. She couldn't figure out why they looked that way. So we put a little lotion on there, we put them in front of the space heater and I told her it would be okay. After her snack, she looked at them again and said "that's better." See, mom's know a thing or two, even if it is just that pruny fingers will look normal again soon.

This morning, Myla got to go crunching in the snow with her Aunt Aimee. She was so excited that when she woke up this morning, she was already telling Aim to put on her boots. Aimee wasn't here, so it seemed a little strange, but nevertheless, Myla told her. And then tonight we went to the chili cook-off at the church. John was in heaven. Myla even tried some, although I think she liked the cornbread and chips better. Its been a very busy day for such a little girl!

This week, Myla was fighting a pretty nasty cold. So much so that I had to come home from work early to love and snuggle her. Believe me, my heart was not broken for that! Thankfully it was just a cold, she never really had a fever or anything, and she slept mostly okay. She's definitely getting over it, and that we can tell by the way she runs us ragged at stores. Myla loves to go places. She woke up from her nap on Wednesday and said "go store mommy daddy" and nodded her head. When I said maybe later, she said "go see mam-mam pop-pop." She is a social butterfly and will talk to people at the store, as long as she's close to one of us. I guess that's a good thing.
Myla has also become very helpful doing things around the house. She takes her clothes to the laundry, helps feed the dog, and loves to set the table. She's getting so tall to be able to even reach the top of the table! We've also discovered that she knows how to read. Ok, not really. We borrowed some Curious George books from the library and have read them so many times she knows how they start. Its fun to hear her say these sentences and know how some passages go. She's a smart cookie. Wonder where she got that from?
