quick post...

Harlow has been doing the cutest things lately that I wanted to quickly document before I forgot.

The last week or so, I have been rocking and singing songs to her before bedtime. She now sings along with me and it is the cutest thing. After each song, she sits there for a second and really takes time to decide her next song request. "Tinkle" (Twinkle Twinkle Little Star), "May Yay" (Mary Had a Little Lamb), and "A" (ABC's) are some of her favorites. I could do it all night! I think she knows that if she acts cute and adorable, it prolongs her having to go to bed, so she turns on the charm:) It totally works.

Harlow LOVES books. She doesn't discriminate:) She likes everything from simple peek-a-boo books to long Dr. Seuss books. We've had "The Giving Tree" ever since she was born, but she has never been interested in it.

It's not entertaining for a toddler, so I don't blame her. But lately she has chosen it. I've only read it to her maybe 3 times in the last few weeks. After I read it last night, instead of putting it back to pick out another one, she opened it up again and read each and every page to me. 3 times!!! It was hysterical.

She mixed A LOT of jibberish with random words that I could understand. It was funny that she got the basic concept:) If you have read the book, you will understand that her 20 month-year-old version is pretty accurate!

This is basically how the story goes (besides the long spurts of baby talk that is impossible to understand):

Tree, Apple, Shoes, Leaves, Money, Sorry, Boat, Happy, Money, Sorry, Hat.

Haha!!! I was dying! I wish I had my phone nearby to record it! She is hilarious.
